How motivated are you to deliver the company's objectives?

I am a big believer that you get out what you put in and with British Airways you have to work hard to hit the targets set. Only draw back is, as with any BIG business you are not always recognised for the hard work you put in

A company that doesnt always listen

Former employee

14-07-2015

To what extent would you say your company is a sociable place to be?

It is a very sociable place to work in, with lots of activities always going on.

How motivated are you to deliver the company's objectives?

Over recent years not very. Although there is a clear objective, how you are going to reach it and the support you will receive is very unclear. If you are not senior management you are not listened too and your opinion does not count (despite your experience), which makes you unmotivated to achieve objectives.

f

To what extent does your company support your career development?

Career development seems to me more of a buzz word with the leadership team rather then actually caring. There are lots of training opportunities, however finding the time to commit to spend on developments is very difficult in most areas of the company. It is very unclear how any of the development programmes help towards any promotional opportunities, as these are mostly bypassed in any interviews.

How would you rate your job security?

Constant re-structures over the past few years does not provide anyone with any job security.

Would you recommend your place of work to a friend or potential job seeker?

Working for Carnival for over 10 years I would of previously recommended this company to everyone as a great place to work. However over the past 2 years there has been a change to the leadership team and key areas which provide job satisfaction are being ignored most importantly not being able to do what you are good at. Reducing team sizes has people doing 2-3 peoples job roles, it is expected for you to work late and come in early to get the job done with no appreciation.
