Pros

Great people supporting a great product. Wonderful laid-back atmosphere and some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Execs are extremely approachable and an open forum is encouraged. Benefits package is fantastic and travel is actually encouraged.

Cons

The company is growing FAST - generally more of a positive than a negative, but communication between departments could be improved.

    Pros

    Don't know if you would fit better in a start up or established company? HomeAway is the answer. Plenty of freedom to explore new ideas and establish yourself, without that pesky risk of going under! Friendly people, fast paced, fun industry!

    Cons

    Be prepared to juggle multiple things at once, own more you can reasonably manage to do well. Sometimes the room is filled with people and the most tenured has only here a few months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FOCUS - you really can't do a lot of things, and do them all well. Customers are getting confused, refine the message and the business plan and then do that really well. Focus on stuff that is customer facing first.

    Pros

    HomeAway does a great job of looking after the employees, providing good benefits and is fun culture.
    It is a global company, so working with teams across the world is very interesting.
    There is never a shortage of new opportunities at HomeAway.
    At the end of the day, we are discussing and looking at vacation rental homes across the globe...how great is that!
    The executive team is sharp and always looking for way to challenge the status quo and improve.

    Cons

    There are many initiatives, so priorities can change on a daily basis. This is really no different than other companies of this size, but for some people a fast paced work environment with competing priorites may not be for them
