    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have nothing against the company but I want people to know I was let go because they said "I wasn't a good fit for company" but really there was one member of senior management that didn't like me. Best advice is take job but don't trust employees and management around you. Only do your work and go home. But update on me I now work for zappos. Karma is a &$#@$. Once priceline finds out that they don't need Booking.com there done in usa.

    Former Employee - Account Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Booking.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is absolutely no Pros working for this company. The only pros working for this company is to get experience and go work for another OTA (Online Travel Agent). I did make some good friends and those

    Cons

    Where to begin....

    Absolutely horrible compensitation
    Nothing but micro managers in charge
    No loyalty
    Unrealistic Goals
    Horrible customer service
    Poor bonus structure (1-2k per quarter)
    you will get an email every quarter letting you know the company broke another profit record and you will be rewarded with nothing or 60% of your bonus (which equates to less then 1k after taxes)
    I made the company over 10 Million in commission last year, and got my full bonus once
    Management will betray your trust in a heart beat
    If you have an opinion or like to speak your mind then you will definitely get written up and try to muscle you out of the company

    I can go on and on but my only advice to you if you are looking to work here is that you shouldnt. I have worked at previous corporations but let me tell you that this one in perticular has a very toxic environment. Management has no idea what they are doing and are constantly micro managing. This job is meant for very simple minded people who are not looking for growth. Do not trust management as they will betray you the second they get a chance. Obviously you can see this by all the other negative reviews written about the company. If you do end up working here then I would suggest you learn the indusrty as best you can and leave to another company that actually pays well and takes care of their employees just as I did. They continously promote the wrong people and it causes a ripple affect as none of these people have ever managed anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your company is on a path to failure, both clients and employees recognize this and although you think you control the market now, your lack of respect will result in your decline, I assure you! Learn to have respect for people and stop micro managing everyone. you set unrealistic goals and I assure you more and more people will be leaving your company.
