Wants to be a leader in business, but pay sucks

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hotwire full-time

ProsFirst of all, kudos to the management for making a wise decision to transition from Waterfall to Agile, very late though and probably the last company to adopt a methodology proven in the market 4 years back. It really gives a great feeling as if sitting on a hot seat everyday.. Work is very interesting and challenging and I see a lot more potential for growth and improvement coming on the way sooner..

ConsHaving said growth potential exists, definitely not in terms of pay / position. Don't expect any promotions.. Expect just few biscuits as increment or bonus.. No recognition for the achievers and your manager will not pat on your back for the job well done. Management aims to be a leader in business and wants to use state of the art technology and tools, but pays literally low compared to the industry standards.. Come on, give something to the real workers.. After all, management should not take all the pride & money at the end of the day.

Advice to Senior ManagementFantastic show in the last 1 year and good luck for the future..

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A comfortable company with good work/life balance at the expense of technical skills development

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Hotwire full-time


Pros: - Good work/life balance. I could easily maintain a 40-hour work week and still do well. -… Cons: - Older technology stack. The site is old, and attempting to use newer technologies… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
