    Pros

    constantly changing and challenging environment.Innovative ideas and work ethics. Very easy to share new ideas. Constant training and plenty of room for self-improvement.A great place to work!

    Cons

    Constant changes can become a reason to stress. One of the company's basic principle is scalability, when not all things are suitable for all parts of the world.Booking.com salaries are average, while expectations for employees are to the roof!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Booking.com really needs to pay attention to their hotel partners more, and not focus constantly on the customers. The danger of loosing the trust of the partners is something that all employees should have in their minds constantly. Also Booking.com needs to pay their employees better, in order to attract and maintain the best of the best in the market .

    Pros

    International environment
    Fair amount of opportunity to advance

    Cons

    Bad Management
    Underpaid
    Constantly changing of plan

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure you promote an employee correctly and appropriately. Perhaps put them on Trial for a certain period, once they get accepted by the team then give them official title. Lots of co-worker once become "senior" start showing off and abuse the authority to make things worse. They either have too little "management" skills or sometimes, not even qualified as one.
