    Pros

    Great people and culture. Priceline participate in a lot of charity events which is great. The work life balance is very good, you can work from home at times. This is the place where you want to start your career but definitely not end it there. get some experience and run for the hill when your ready.

    Cons

    Outdated technology, they seem to like to build their own tool when there's already better open source applications out there. Management is just terrible. Some manager are very disrespectful and HR does nothing so don't expect support. No reward for hard work, random firing although that's pretty new. If your in IT, be aware of this place. I would never recommend anyone to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Consider replacing some of your manager, being at a job too long may cloud someone judgment and how to work with others. The simple fact that there are so many openings should give you a reason to worry ( as of 4/14/2013).

    Pros

    Very lax'd work environment in regards to start time. Most managers are incompetent since they get promoted from within with very little or no management training.

    Cons

    Management unable to properly gauge good from bad technical talent. The environment tends to be status qua in regards to technology. No longer has the feel of an eCommerce site, but feels more like an insurance or banking institution. Company is very frugal with buying decisions and picks price over quality with regards to buying decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with new management layers and go back to a flat model. The new reorg has bloated the company with regards to executive decision red tape. To much middle management introduced in regards to employee management ratio. This leads to slow decision making process as well as delivery times associated with project delivery times.
