    Current Employee - Commercial Support Manager

    Pros

    - international working environment
    - opportunity to develop and try many different types of roles
    - dynamic and result driven company

    Cons

    - as it is a large organisation, the internal politics can be inefficient and time consuming
    - although it is an international environment it is still challenging to move roles across businesses if you do not know the right people. (HR have limited visibility, motivation to work across businesses and markets)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - continue to challenge yourselves
    - evaluate/analyse cost savings and actions better and understand what their long term impact will be for the business

    Pros

    The senior management was very supportive in its directions and in the leadership approach. Hierarchies are rather flat, which makes it possible to have your say in decisions.

    Cons

    Career development and perspectives for young talents should be put a stronger focus on by senior management, in order to keep employees motivated.

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, outstanding travel benefits. Pay pretty good for travel industry and the brand is prestigious in the industry.

    Cons

    Lack of progression opportunities, particularly in between departments. Luton location rather sterile but they do their best to keep staff entertained despite being away from bright lights of London.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in people with dedicated training programmes and don't be short sighted and assume people want to stay in the same department for all their career
