    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.

    Pros

    Friendly people, great social culture

    Cons

    Return from maternity leave is not adequately supported. Separately, there are known instances of male employees being paid more than females for the same role and/or with the same amount of experience. Overall, FCTG does not support females properly. Whilst there is 'womanwise' and other initiatives, when it comes to practice FCTG doesn't 'walk the walk'. More also needs to be done to allow staff to enable... staff leadership positions to be in a Part Time capacity (within reason ie perhaps there is a threshold of 0.7 FTE or something).

    Advice to Management

    In practice, support maternity leavers and ensure equality in salary.
