    I have been working at HomeAway

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great. I enjoy the work I do - it doesn't really seem like actual work. I look at pictures of homes, beaches, and other travel destinations all day! Every Wednesday, breakfast is brought in. We also have a kitchen with free drinks and snacks. The people at HomeAway are great to work with! HomeAway also has awesome parties. Another thing I like about HomeAway is that even though it is an office environment, it is not stuffy. No one wears suits to work. We are professionals, but the atmosphere for the most part is very casual.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the work can get a little tedious. I am one of the people responsible for editing listings, and there is a lot of in-depth reading and error correction involved, particularly with the job I do. Also, at the time of this review, we're in a stage of rapid growth, so there is a lot of work that needs to be done -- which means that there is a great need for overtime hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have only good things to say about every aspect of HomeAway. Everyone within the company is approachable, and that's something I value, especially when it comes to upper management.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic atmosphere in the office and a company that looks after their staff as much as possible.
    Career opportunities are always available
    Due to the casual nature of the company there is a great link from managers to other employees

    Cons

    Company is growing bigger everyday and could fall victim to a 'corporate' environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To discuss changes with employees as they will always have a great insight to what the customer wants
