Current Employee - Quality Assurance Engineer in Austin, TX
Current Employee - Quality Assurance Engineer in Austin, TX

I have been working at HomeAway full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Coming from a 100k+ corp size the company seems very creative and anyone willing can make an impactful change

Cons

Per the role I am in we definitely have the hurry up and then wait time cycles, but sort of a nature of the beast

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You don't have to be the cool young hip company, but you don't have to reject a marketing style because of it either

    Great if you're in a department with some upward mobility

    Pros

    Flexible PTO, casual environment, young workforce, corporate transparency, time off

    Cons

    A lot of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. If you have dental background you will fare better since some projects are like pulling teeth. Some upper management feel the need to brag about their business trips or work from home without the need to lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for upward mobility.
