    I worked at Flight Centre Travel Group full-time

    Pros

    Great exposure to what is a huge travel machine. Excellent entry point into the industry for school-leavers.

    Cons

    Growth is their only driver. So many experienced and good quality staff have been let go as the goal posts continually change. Very little trust in senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more authentic. Deliver on your promises.
