    Pros

    Priceline is on solid ground and doing very well. Very focused on innovation and collaboration, makes it a very fun and enjoyable work. Most members of Senior management are dialed in to the employees and do their best to recognize accomplishments and reward accordingly.

    Cons

    There are several people in the company who have been with Priceline for a long time and who are very stuck in their ways. The company has spent a great deal of time, money, and effort to "modernize" itself and create a more tech based environment. Unfortunately, many of the legacy employees, and several who should be real advocates for change, simply just don't get it! It may be time for them to move on!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at legacy employees and take an honest assessment of their "fit" for the new priceline.com.

    Pros

    Priceline has been a fantastic place for me to learn and grow over the past 10+ years. My colleagues are intelligent and passionate about our business. I have learned much from my peers and continue to do so every day. Employees who deliver successful results are rewarded and the company prefers to promote from within. Over the past 18 months, senior management has led a positive cultural change to redefine the direction of the company, including our values, work environment and increase employee engagement.

    Cons

    In the past, the company's focus on cost control made us successful, however investment in employee development was not a top priority. This has changed recently and Sr. Mgmt. is now supporting training initiatives and is also supporting hiring additional talent where needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue supporting training opportunities for staff and widen the amount of training offered.

    Pros

    Smart, friendly people, most of whom are trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Power of ever growing 'conversion' team - most of whom don't know the travel industry and have little guidance. Unrealistic views about headcount required in other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do another employee satisfaction survey.

    I have been working at Priceline.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Innovative people to work with.
    Fast paced, open environment.
    Stock is very strong.

    Cons

    Very little training for new employees which means many of your colleagues have little understanding of how the business works, so a lot of time is spent redoing things.

    Not a lot of accountability. There are a lot of effective, hard workers, but you also have a lot of people that can drop the ball and there are no repercussions which is disheartening for those who are picking up the slack.

    Lack of communication. It's very common to find out about a project after it's already completed and only then is it discovered that requirements were completely overlooked because the relevant groups were not consulted.

    Lack of career growth. There is very little opportunities to move up in the organization or even laterally.

    Many teams are running too lean and it's very difficult to convince upper management to add extra headcount for support teams.

    Lack of direction. Goals are not clearly defined by upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set clear, concise goals and expectations.
    Create a career development plan and train your employees.
    Set a clear concise product vision so your employees know whether they created something successful, are going in the right direction and can feel a sense of accomplishment.
    Recognize your talent.

    Pros

    There are some truly talented and passionate people who work here that want to build something great.

    If you are motivated to set your own goals and work towards them you can carve a niche for yourself.

    Flexible work hours and lots of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    You may not get much direction or support from management.

    There is a reluctance to deviate from & evolve the model that made this company money close to a decade ago despite an ever changing competitive landscape.

    There are many complacent workers that have had their creativity stifled by years of waterfall management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Setting the overall product strategy and vision for teams to work towards may help to give them a sense of purpose and accomplishment.
