I worked at Hotels.com

Pros

There are visits by hotels from all over the world and they give out goodies.

It's definitely sales driven and can be overbearing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lighten up on the hired help.

    I worked at Hotels.com as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You are given a great autonomy to learn and develop knowledge without being micromanaged. Twice a month on a Friday there was free breakfast provided from Paul which was a wonderful treat. There are also regular beer and pizza evenings where staff are encouraged to engage more.

    Cons

    Everything is done in the last possible minute without long term planning. Many employees appear to promoted to management for being good at their job without management training and therefore have a lack of empathy towards staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make some long term decisions to give employees enough time to execute effectively.

    I have been working at Hotels.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Big open planned office in a central part of London. Big roof terrace which is great during the summer. The benefits package is pretty good and includes a fair few travel perks. Not a pro for everyone but you get to travel quite a bit for work which can be good fun.

    Cons

    Can push the boundaries even more than we have done and create more of a balance between using data and listening to what our customers are telling us. Though this has been addressed more this year.
