Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Flight Centre Travel Group full-time

Pros

Fun Environment to work with nice people.

Cons

Still finding their feet in Ireland

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Skyscanner full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Just had a quick read through some previous reviews and the negative ones really do baffle me. I'd hate for any potential new employee to be put off by these. While everyone has their own unique... experiences, depending on variables such as line manager and team etc, some of the negativity is quite frankly, just nonsense. If someone is unfortunate enough to feel that they are being bullied or are suffering from feeling a lack of inclusivity then there are several channels for employees to report this (Glassdoor probably shouldn't be the starting point), whether this be confidential or otherwise. The company is so protective of its unique culture, especially as the number of employees grows. Personally, I've never worked with such a diverse bunch of humans - it's brilliant! So many people from different countries, faiths, gender identities, sexualities (the list goes on). The company are inherently generous. They are always looking at new ways to make sure we are happy at work. Never settling for just the 'standard', they always try to go over and above. Whether that's something small like a fully stocked soda fridge and fruit bowl or amazing summer staff BBQ's or the lump sum they give us every year towards our own holiday. We're so lucky. The way Skyscanner has handled the current COVID pandemic internally has really been quite outstanding. While our travellers and partners remain our priority, the Exec team have made every effort to ensure employees don't have undue pressure during what is a difficult time for everyone. On a personal level, it's helped me massively - knowing that there's breathing space. The consistent motto has been "do your best" and they know and trust that every single one of us will.

Cons

None, zilch, nada, nein, ninguno (there was a 5 word minimum requirement).

Advice to Management

Pander less to the naysayers. I've noticed that recently the number of employees who ask awkward, loaded or defensive questions at Town Halls seems to have increased, either that or my tolerance has... decreased...and while I love the fact that we have a company-wide open forum where no question is off limits, don't be shy to remind the negative Normans* that no one is forcing them to be here. *Disclaimer - this is not in reference to any specific person named Norman :-)
