    I worked at Hotwire full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great building and location, good compensation, work/life balance, travel discounts. Recently transitioned from Waterfall to Agile software development which is much more transferable to other tech companies.

    Cons

    Employees are low energy and generally seem stuck in a rut. Hotwire sells a fun, smart culture, but many who progress through the ranks to management and senior management or are awarded recognition as representing Hotwire's core values do the bare minimum amount of work and rarely attend company events. Hotwire is a steady stream of income for its parent company (Expedia) and goals, products, and initiatives play it safe to keep the revenue coming in.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the amount of middle management, encourage education and skills development.

    I have been working at Hotwire full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hotwire is differentiated in the market, which makes the product rewarding for customers. Sr. Management is focused and respectful of the people. Everyone is working on becoming more responsive to customers and innovative and they're starting to show great results.

    Cons

    If you want to be told exactly what to do and just follow direction this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving fast and experiment with disruptions to old models.
