Pros

Das Arbeitsumfeld bei Thomas Cook ist sehr freundlich und der allgemeine Ruf des Unternehmens ist sehr gut. Mitarbeiter scheinen glücklich mit ihrer Arbeit zu sein.

The working environment at Thomas Cook is very friendly and the general reputation of the company is quite good. Employees seem happy with their jobs.

Cons

Die Arbeitsauslastung variiert erheblich, ich hatte das Pech, dort während eines langsamen Zeitraums zu sein. Aus der Perspektive eines Praktikanten sind die hierarchischen Strukturen sehr verwirrend.

The workload varies dramatically, I had the bad luck to be there during a slow period. From the perspective of an intern, hierarchical structures are very confusing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Setzen Sie eine klare, einheitliche Kultur und Hierarchie durch.

Enforce clear consistent culture and hierarchy.

    I have been working at Thomas Cook full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Welcoming atmosphere, a lot of honesty, few pointless meetings, no 'old boys club' feel, a good feeling of optimism.

    Cons

    Huge company-wide transformation which makes things a little confusing at times, some out-dated, out-sourced approaches to things like IT but credit where it's due, that's all changed and there are actual English people working for us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to move more things back to the UK, overseas is good but you can create more opportunity at home if you open up more. Also do something about the sheds we work in!!!

    I worked at Thomas Cook

    Pros

    The company is in a transformation stage and definitely on the right track. New senior management have defined a vision for the future and are committed to delivering it.

    Cons

    Business units tend to work in silos and frequently display "sibling rivalry' traits. There is a constant power battle at middle and senior management levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the concerns of your people. They genuinely want to embark on this journey with you but need to feel they are part of the team.
