    I have been working at TravelLocal full-time

    Pros

    There is great scope to get involved and feel a part of the growth of the company, and to take ownership on projects. From my experience they are very supportive and understanding - seem to be really invested in their staff! Really friendly team with regular social events. Nice atmosphere in the office, which is in a brilliant central location in Bristol. Great work - life balance.

    Cons

    Being a start up now scaling up, it is a dynamic working environment and lack of structure can occasionally be a bit frustrating.

    I have been working at TravelLocal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a fast-growing company there is always something new to be doing and learning, and there is a lot of scope to take the initiative and eventual credit for successes. The company has a good ethical foundation and the international network of partners mean that there are many varied stakeholders, which prevent things from becoming insular. There are regular socials and there is often good conversation in the office...

    Cons

    There is more work to do than can be shared around, it's always full-on and accelerating.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the company culture vibrant and open, and listen to employees' concerns and viewpoints.

    I have been working at TravelLocal

    Pros

    Very hardworking and capable team. Management care about individuals and their progress, listen to staff and have ambitious plans for the company in general which is exciting to be a part of. Great social aspects with regular organised outings and more casual team socialising as well, everyone is really friendly and gets on well.

    Cons

    Ideally the office would be closer to town as Temple Meads is a bit of deadzone, however understandable as other people need to commute in from out of town.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing as you scale the business.

    I have been working at TravelLocal full-time

    Pros

    Lovely team of sociable, down-to-earth people making it a lovely environment in which to work. Flexible working hours mean you can easily have a good work/life balance

    Cons

    Being a start-up, there is a lot of work and you will occasionally have to muck in to help the team forward, even if that means that your own work gets de-prioritised. Therefore if you like just ticking off a to-do list and going home, this probably isn't the job for you. However it makes it a dynamic, sometimes fast-paced place to work where you get to use your creativity and learn a lot.
