How is management perceived at Holiday Extras?

Pros

Flexi hours Working from home

Cons

- HR are wholly ineffective - Most management are self-serving and do little to support - Huge pay discrepancy between management and employees - The company stifles individuality, wanting to create HX individuals rather than celebrate individual's talents and personalities

Advice to Management

1.Please take controlling and manipulative behaviour seriously. To this day i'm still in utter shock that this company have got away with so much. 2. Please listen to employees especially if they have taken the courage to speak out who are struggling and actually do something about it. 3. Please do not mould someone into something they are not because they don't fit in to their 'norm' or their 'click'. In order to thrive as a business you need treat everyone equally and respect everyone's diverse characteristics.

What is the company culture like at Holiday Extras?

Pros

Values driven work culture,, fantastic benefits, profit share each quarter, monthly coaching and 121’s, free parking, teas, coffees, weekly business updates via “Shout out,” beautiful outdoor space to work and play, working from home. CEO MATT PACK is an amazing human being. Compassionate, kind and genuine. He has an open door policy and he listens. He is the “do right man!” A true leader whom I will never forget and had the privilege to work for.

Cons

I can honestly say there are no Cons for me. They always strive to be better.

Advice to Management

Show more care and compassion to those people who are truly vulnerable and deserving of being heard. There is no “one size fits all!” Sometimes you have to think outside of the box. Be courageous and speak to your hierarchy about individual situations and circumstances. Your lack of compassion can have disastrous consequences.
