    Cons

    started to feel too much like a big corporate company after dnata brought in some Directors who dont care about the staff

    Pros

    Excellent training - really detailed and committed training by the guy who spent weeks with us going over the booking systems. Very smooth introduction into the sale floor and a supportive team.

    Cons

    Targets quickly become unattainable Work is incredibly tedious, just taking endless enquiry calls. No much earning potential, uninspired colleagues. Humdrum

    Pros

    Allowed to work autonomously and judged fairly on results by a competent line manager (Product Director). Ideas could be implemented quickly.

    Cons

    Location - company has been around a long time and has churned most of the decent work force in the area. They suffered from a reluctance to promote from within (may have changed since TC taken over).
