    Pros

    Hotwire is a melting pot of smart and energetic employees immersed in fun and fast moving corporate culture. The open environment at Hotwire allows for high levels of collaboration, eliminates surprises in the business, and allows for real-time identification of risks/opportunities. There are competent employees in nearly every area of the business and most processes run without issue.

    Cons

    The association with the parent company causes some "Big Company" hurdles to be pushed down stream to a company that thrives on keeping "Small Company" nimbleness. The company doesn't pay great for the industry, but the benefits greatly help to ease the pain. Hotwire management is probably a little too risk averse, but nearly every initiative can be counted on to deliver positive results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is very important to maintain the corporate culture and to stick to the companies core values and business strategy. Continue to focus on what we do well and to not dive head first into new and untested territory. Continue to encourage open collaboration across all departments and inter company camaraderie.
