Current Employee - Account Manager in New York, NY
Current Employee - Account Manager in New York, NY

I have been working at Booking.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Employment
partnered with priceline
network within the industry

Cons

-employees are promoted not based on merit or experience but for an unknown hidden reason, which leaves much to ones imagination.
-you have to dumb down your resume and work experience if you want to get hired. this is not an experienced team of management, and are easily threatened.
-their minority hiring is as much as eeo tells them too..meaning the numbers are exact. very clever and not so clever.
-trainers have no experience.
-supervisors are extremely dodgy. some are managing teams and have NEVER supervised people before.
-if you leave the company they management will collectively try to destroy your professional reputation.
while at this company I have seen supervisors befriend employees, visit the employees sick parents at their hospital bedside, then collaborate with management to push the employee out of the company. needless to say this individual was promoted, so if you like this sort of culture then this is the place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have none. this type of behavior within a company is usually carried to the extreme until a few lawsuits give them a wake up call.

    Cons

    Management. If hired hope you get RIGHT senior
    Communication is bad
    Cold calling to people who don't even know what Booking.com is
    Green people in las Vegas and San fran locations
    Unrealistic qt goals with week 1k bonus
    Most employees that are higher up only hire friends
    Unprofessional senior management in las Vegas office
    Have to wait one year to become promoted which is nearly impossible because you would have to move out of country or 3k plus miles
    Dutch Company
    West coast management

    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.

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic!!!!!
    Work environment is laid back.
    Salary is Awesome for the responsibilities.
    Best sales job in the world.
    IATA Card
    Not a sales based company so quotas are big but they are flexible.
    Management is flexible and understanding.
    Many team based activities.
    If you are not in the industry they will still give you an opportunity.
    Chicago downtown location.
    Good commuter benefits and sales support materials.
    The travel makes it not boring. No burn out possibilities because of the amount of travel.
    Many employee based activities and they are focused on team building.

    Cons

    So far none...

    I havent been doing this for a long time but I'm super happy.

    Ohh.... Running out of hotels to acquire LOL It's a CON I can deal with because of the benefits.
