    Former Employee - Vice President in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Hotwire full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relative independence from the rest of the Expedia travel portfolio (Expedia is the parent company of Hotwire)

    Cons

    Corporate HQ for Expedia, the parent company, is in Bellevue. That can make communication challenging as many important decisions still happen there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware of the issues of geography as you manage subsidiary companies!

    Pros

    Work culture was good and the company paid me well!

    Cons

    The management was too late to react to the downfall in business and they resorted to layoffs as the first option. Pathetic!
