    Pros

    I work in the New York office and the culture is very similar to a startup. The New York office is full of life and has the feel of a start up culture (casual, fooseball and ping pong tables, snacks, beer) while still maintaining professionalism. People are great and they give you the opportunity to take the lead where you see fit. Not every decision needs a sign off and it allows for growth and innovation.

    Cons

    Still have some of that traditional and corporate mindset. Although, I don't completely consider it a con because it adds a level of professionalism that not all employers have these days.

    Advice to Management

    Customer Conversion department management is great. I love the ability to be heard, even in lower tiers. The goals setting gives employees to have an opportunity to take initiative and fix issues with processes.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Priceline is one of the best jobs I've held. The people are amazing, the company is solid. Everyone in the company has a strong idea of where we are headed, and how their job impacts the business.

    Cons

    The company is relatively "flat" in its organizational structure, leaving somewhat limited opportunities for growth in some areas.

    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.
