    Pros

    People Social Events Intelligent workforce Interesting Projects Work/Life Balance

    Cons

    Management/Leadership Dictatorship Don't invest in their employees, rubbish employee benefits Lack of personal and professional development Don't let you move across teams Get you working on mundane boring stuff for years and don't let you move Very old fashioned way of working As said in the title, research the current CEO, will tell you a lot about the company A lot of the positive reviews on glassdoor are fabricated

    Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to read that you did not have an overall positive experience and have to assume this may have been some time ago, as the comments are not in line with how we treat our employees. Our people are our most important asset and we pride ourselves on offering fantastic social events, welfare programmes and volunteering opportunities to all. We invest heavily in professional development, since 2014 having a dedicated Learning and Development team. We support and encourage employees to develop their professional experience by moving teams on the UK or to any one of our 35 offices worldwide. In 2015 we reviewed company benefits offered and we offer above what of our competitors do. Please read the benefits section in Glassdoor.

    I have been working at The Travel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    With a young family the biggest pro is a good work life balance. Whilst at time within the year the hours need to be put in there is always light at the end of the tunnel as unlike some places I have previously worked this isn't the norm throughout the whole year. I also work with an exceptional team who are prepared to contribute and generally muck in with good grace and real endeavour not matter what gets thrown their way.

    Cons

    The group is going through the pains of updating numerous systems and methods of communications. At times these changes have been rather haphazard and IT driven which at time has resulted in systems and upgrades that are not suitable for the users.

    I have been working at The Travel Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is a great place to grow and develop if you passionate about what you do and can adapt to the current reality of work. There are many talented individuals and teams within the company and it is a pleasure working, learning and growing with the teams. The flexible working hours supports work life balance in the changing world we live in and there a several social clubs events, summer events and charity based activities. The company offers internal training sessions and workshops and generally support employees with work related certification exams and training. We have started getting feedback early from the business and working closer with the business to deliver applications and systems that deliver value and meet their needs.

    Cons

    The work load can be challenging and we will need to slow down to implement some of the infrastructure and process change required that will make us work more effectively and efficiently going forward.

    Pros

    Able to travel on our trips. Great team. Work/Life balance was great.

    Cons

    Salary may be on the low end, but that is the travel industry as a whole. Unfortunately the company was effected by the pandemic, which was not their fault.

    I have been working at The Travel Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are so many opportunities within this family of brands. As a group we have many platforms so there is a lot of sharing of information - you constantly learn (trust me after 10 years I am still learning something new often) & the team is constantly striving to be ahead of the curve. It's really an exciting environment to be part of. The work / life balance is perfect however I always find myself talking about my brand outside of office hours as it's such an exciting brand and most people have experienced a trip and love reminiscing - I am really proud to represent this amazing company.

    Cons

    I absolutely love my job!
