    Pros

    Small start-up, where you can really get involved & grow your skills. Fun, but still environment.

    Cons

    Stressful sometimes due to lack of resources, but management seems to be working things out.

    Pros

    None. Literally None. Read customer reviews about AlwaysOnVacation.com and that will give you an idea of what employees are asked to do.

    Cons

    High pressure sales for a company that doesn't perform. They literally just take people's money and do nothing in return. The CEO doesn't care about anyone but himself and terminated 30 employees before they even started. Because of this, the executive team abandoned ship because the CEO is a hot mess and a legal liability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit scamming people. Employees are being forced to choose between a paycheck and basically scamming people. That's why you moved your "sales" team to places like India and Bulgaria.

    Pros

    They may put you up in a hotel if you move from out of the area for the job.

    San Ramon is a nice community in the East Bay. What that has to do with the job itself though bears no relevance.

    Cons

    If you are stupid or desperate enough to take a job offer over the phone and move out for this company, then you are partially to blame yourself for what goes wrong....this company has a history of hiring people desperate to get out to California from other less desirable spots in the US. However, once you have landed and your free month's accommodation in the hotel is up, be prepared for a very rude awakening. This business seems like money laundering and a total scam! I saw through it pretty quickly and left within weeks, but it definitely scarred me -- and scared me.

    I was promised health insurance over the phone. They don't offer it! Be wary of what sounds like a higher salary. Not only is the East Bay expensive, but you're also getting screwed by having zero health coverage.

    Pros

    You will receive your payments on time every single month.

    Cons

    Senior management does not have a clue of what's going on with their offices in India. They're playing with the system and making up numbers but the reality is much different than that. Senior management doesn't trust you when you raise the flag and report suspicious activities in other teams. HR Management doesn't care about your needs and changes the policies from one day to another. You cannot plan on building a career in this company. They can hire you, tell you that you're an awesome employee and the next day (depending on the CEO's mood) you can be the worst employee ever. So unprofessional.

    Pros

    If you want a hands-on experience, and willing to learn and test, not afraid to take over new responsibilities and wear multiple hats - this is a good place to work for. You really get to explore your own abilities to make decisions, manage people and projects, plan and work with internal and external teams.

    Cons

    Work hours can be long at times (have to adjust to working with India and Europe), and some projects take longer than anticipated because of limited resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on improving site functionality and invest in engineering and development

    I worked at AlwaysOnVacation.com

    Pros

    There are no pros for working with this company. Every step of the employment process is a nightmare situation to deal with.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Incompetent management team and "Human Resources Department" with zero management or decision-making skills. A prospective or current employee cannot believe a single word of what they are told or promised as the management team are completely unreliable with any form of communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look up the definition of ethics and apply it to your company and personal life. An education in Business Administration would be beneficial to you and your company as well.

    Pros

    Salary on time, Technical hand on senior management team

    Cons

    Too much politics, senior management not aware of ground realities and only solution for all problems is hiring and firing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A healthy mix of managers to ground level employees must be maintained - too many managers lead to politics, ego clashes, conflicts of interests.
