    Pros

    Security, great colleagues, very nice working environment, very interesting job. With the very good mentoring, guidance & team-work, you can learn a lot & progress within the company. Realistic targets. Needless to mention all the extras, like parties, trainings around the world, etc

    Cons

    Very hard work required during the high touristic seasons.

    I worked at Booking.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual environment, very nice colleagues, multicultural contacts and the opportunity to travel, and you may be lucky enough to advance your career in some cases

    Cons

    No autonomy, mediocre salaries, inflexible policies in general, no incentive to advance your education, constant brainwash, very few career opportunities in some cases, obsession with numbers regardless the human factor and achievements outside the numbers. If you like to be regarded as a number, or cattle for that matter, this is the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is advice to the highest ranks in the company, because regular managers only follow the company's policies: you have a long way to go when it comes to dealing with people and giving them the deserved recognition and autonomy. You have already lost so many great people because of that. Stop treating employees like numbers, be more human towards them, be more gentle and flexible, promote less brainwash and fluff, promote real growth and education instead. Train managers to be real leaders and trive, rather than being mere brainwashed sheep programmed to control the other sheep. I hold nothing against this company and I am grateful for what I learned, but frankly, you have a long way to go in order to treat employees with real dignity. Drop you arrogance.
