Pros

There are many good people around to learn from. Strong use of MySQL, there are many training offered by company.

Cons

They have a chaotic way of implementing software. They break a big task into many small tasks, which can be implemented by different people and there is no documentation to make sense of the code.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would help a lot to provide developers with a high level overview of the other teams.

    Pros

    If you are just in the country it is good to start working for Booking, then you meet some really nice people you can make friends with

    Cons

    Very high staff turnover which makes it impossible to build a normal professional relationships
    Very incompetent managers - they become managers out of the blue, the less experience they have-the better, the less people skills they have-the better, if they can keep themselves busy with pointless thinks (they call that projects), and if they talk out loud how busy they are - soon they will be promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Berlin (Germany)

    Pros

    Center of Berlin, easy to get to, normal working hours, no charge for lunch

    Cons

    Pretentious management that controls employees with seeding fear in them, lying to its employees and not standing behind promises; Good for call agents, not for any position above it. Beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
