    Pros

    There's a real opportunity to make an impact on Priceline as it is scaling up its hiring. There is a welcome, explicit focus on corporate values. The perks are nice -- a beer-filled fridge, weekly yoga, a foosball table, summer Fridays, summer and Christmas parties -- but the actual work, with passionate and committed people, makes it a great place to be. Work/life balance is good and management is great about treating employees like adults.

    Cons

    The travel industry is consolidating, and Priceline focused for so long on cost containment that it found itself behind its competitors. This leads to a frustrating feeling of trying to catch up to a moving target. Don't know about the long term outlook for the company or the online travel business as a whole. Competing on price is a tough place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in the best new hires you possibly can, and promote the best employees as fast as possible.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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