Best Co. I have ever worked for. Seriously.

IT Manager (Current Employee) Austin, TX

ProsOffices designed to make you comfortable and productive from the furnishings to the kitchens to the art.
High quality people from the C-Team down. Few losers in the mix and they tend to get pushed out soon enough.
Challenging work that makes an immediate, visible impact..
Competitive pay. I check my comp with PayScale.com occasionally and HomeAway is on the mark.

ConsThere are pockets of less than stellar management below the C-Team level.
The Co. is struggling to keep true to it's cultural roots while acting like a highly visible public company. That causes some pain and awkwardness at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in management training and make it mandatory for onboarding and advancement.
Get some outside advice on successfully transitioning a culture from startup to public. It would be a shame for this culture to get lost.
Make 360 reviews for management an annual event. People don't leave HomeAway, they leave bad managers at HomeAway. I've seen this happen more than once in only two years.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
