    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Booking.com

    Pros

    Mostly nice mix of international colleagues

    Many training opportunities

    Cafeteria and social element.

    End of year party in Amsterdam is great.

    Not too formal (dress code etc.)

    Cons

    Seems to follow pure capitalist US style.

    Huge CEO pay and profits contrasted against poor salaries at lower levels.

    Various disappointing behaviour from middle management.

    Questionable practices with multiple 'trial periods', punitive sick day system, etc.

    Lot's of buzz words and hype.

    No corporate social responsibility or environmental program.

    Multiple interviews for even the most basic position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All this time on ethics training and then pay people poorly / act questionably whilst turning unimaginable profits. Seriously?

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

    Pros

    - everyone is given a great deal of responsability from day 1
    - flat hierarchy
    - good opportunities to grow and develop professionally
    - freedom to try out ideas
    - people are not restricted by their roles - you can contribute in different ways even if they're out of your role's scope
    - fun athmosphere and great colleagues
    - international environment
    - great office facilities and location (headquarters)

    Cons

    - below average salary
    - HR processes are not well organized, which is mostly felt during the hiring and onboarding process
    - technical skills training is lacking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - review HR processes - keep them informal but structured so employees feel heard and respected
    - invest more in employee compensation

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
