    I have been working at Hotwire full-time (less than an year)

    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!

    Current Employee - Unix Systems Administrator in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Hotwire full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The people are mostly great
    - Nice office
    - Great benefits
    - Passion for travel
    - Lots of opportunity to learn new technologies

    Cons

    - No more work from home
    - New president that doesn't seem to understand the bay area job market
    - Layoffs during a time of running extremely lean already
    - Lots of good people leaving
    - Average pay is below market rate
    - The "fun" environment of the past has become a much more stressful and negative environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the "crack the whip" attitude now or we're going to lose all our best employees. Bring back the fun, flexibility, passion, and atmosphere that made the company so successful in the past.
