I worked at Booking.com full-time for more than 3 yearsPros
When I first started it was a great company. However, that has completely gone out the window. The only Pro's are that you can wear jeans and Priceline looks great on your resume, that's it. You also get to go to Amsterdam for the year end party but after one visit and their attempt to brainwash you, you will leave disgusted.Cons
Here is an in depth list of cons because everybody should know just how terrible this place is to work.
- salary is $15-20k less than direct competitors and they know this but simply do not care. They will tell you that fresh fruit and coffee are part of your salary. In the US we actually work for money but it's a Dutch company so it is what it is.
-culture is "Booking blue" which means be extremely fake. They try to paint a picture like everything is going great and people are happy but I bet close to 60% of US employees are looking elsewhere for employment.
- Amsterdam- the most arrogant bunch of people in leadership positions. Sorry but I can't take you seriously in your ripped jeans and t-shirt. Stop acting like your curing cancer because your just underpaid slaves like the rest of us. Their motto is "workhorses not show ponies" . It was a chore not to be combative with this egotistical idiots.
Why would I be a show pony? You don't pay people regardless Lol
- senior management- I can't respect you because all you do is take orders from Amsterdam. You know you cannot manage either so stop kidding yourself.
-personal development- they don't offer much but there is no point to develop yourself there. For what, a $5k raise and triple the workload? Take everything you learn and jump ship! They like to hire externally for those kind of positions, or bring someone from Amsterdam who you will just love!Advice to ManagementAdvice
Have a backbone and challenge these things being implemented from Amsterdam. Stop being such pacifists! What's the worst that could happen lose your job? There's plenty of jobs out there where you can actually make money! My advice to everyone is stop being comfortable and look elsewhere and in the meantime revolt against these tools!Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
