    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Intrepid Travel gearbeitet (Über 5 Jahre)

    Pros

    The product is great and what the employees are there - its great to sell and has a nice value. Also free trips were possible.

    Kontras

    work environment is awful. no matter what you do, you always get the feeling its not enough and there is never anyone telling you "hey you're doing great". Intrepid lost its soul years ago - now its all about the money and not about the experience. The salary is extremely low. Always understaffed, high pressure in sales, not possible to reach the bonus, going cheap on everything.

    Rat an das Management

    Think about the people working there!

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Intrepid Travel gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    - High energy, passionate co-workers
    - Travel Benefits
    - The Intrepid Foundation does a lot of good in the world
    - New North American regional director gives me hope that some of the cons below will be improved upon

    Kontras

    - Very little room for growth in the company if you aren't in Melbourne office. Even those willing to move to another continent will move laterally in their career (at least those in sales roles)
    - Extremely high stress. My last few months in the US office (which is now closed) saw all of us clocking about two hours of overtime per night and still not hitting the extremely high sales targets
    - High-level growth is prioritized with no regard for what tools are required for staff to achieve those goals
    - This job used to make me feel so lucky to have it; by the end, it felt like a call center. - It's much more of a customer service job than a sales job.
    - Pay is low for the industry
    - Commission structure was changed to reduce the financial burden of staffing on the business (translation: to pay sales teams less as sales targets skyrocketed)
    - Managers who were bad at their job were promoted while low-level employees who worked hard but didn't fit into the clique saw no movement in their careers
    - The California office was closed in 2018, leaving a lot of experienced and loyal staff with the option to either lose their jobs or move to Canada
    - When the office is backed up on work, customers get angry (rightfully so) and you're left to deal with people's high tempers resulting from a situation that you did not cause
    - The company has great values but these don't always translate to how staff within the business are treated
    - It seems like the North American region was a special case and staff in the other offices are much happier, I hope this is the case and that the North American office is improving :)

    Rat an das Management

    - Take constructive criticism as an opportunity to grow
    - It's great to have friends at work, but please work to make sure that clique membership is not a requirement for professional opportunities to grow int he company
    - Sales teams work their butts off for very low pay, please recognize them for the work they do
    - Intrepid got skilled staff for not being a call center, you'll keep those staff by not becoming one

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Intrepid Travel gearbeitet (Über 3 Jahre)

    Pros

    I loved working at Intrepid Travel and being a part of the Intrepid Group. I stared with the company as a tour leader and eventually ended up in Custom Groups Sales. The passion everyone has in the company is amazing and their commitment to Responsible Travel is excellent. The people I worked with across all continents were amazing and Intrepid just has some of the best people ever!

    Kontras

    Limited growth opportunities if you do not reside in the UK or Australia. The company is changing this slowly but the closure of their USA office means it will be difficult for US residents to progress with the company.

    Rat an das Management

    Overall, keep up the good work! Intrepid Group is an amazing company delivering an awesome product, and doing amazing things in the travel world.

    - good learning environment
    - people are really friendly
    - possibility sometimes for international mobility

    Kontras

    Should follow pareto rule and get rid of non necessary part of the business that just add additional layers of complications

    Pros

    At intrepid we believe in the best Tavel experiences and we believe in our people.
    The compensation is above average for our industry.

    It would be great if there was a more structured HR support team in the regions.
