    Pros

    1. Used to be a great place to work. 2. Used to be good work-life balance, and flexible work timings. 3. Excellent travel benefits like free $500 money. 4. Free $600 for health-gym. 5. If you are in the right team then you will enjoy the work. It all depends on the Manager and Lead. Our lead lacked everything apart from technical knowledge. 6. Great location. 7. Good and supportive people to work with. 8. Scope for innovation but it all depends on your manager. 9. You can learn new technologies. 10. Everyone says Agile but it is not. 11. Laid back attitude. 12. Used to have fun parties.

    Cons

    1. Pathetic salary, below average what market pays. 2. Recently fired 50+ people in the first round but CEO still thinks that HW is not lean. 3. Open secret - CEO Clem Bason was asked to leave his position. 4. New CEO wants to prove that he can turn around, and add a bullet point in his resume for the cost of employee careers. 5. Forget about any promotion in future and join. 6. Made a huge bet on International and paying the price now. 7. All the good people left, only the dead water remaining. 8. Not sure what middle management is doing. 9. Made a huge mistake by not investing in Analytics. 10. There will be no mentoring or encouragement for your work.

    Advice to Management

    Think why people go to priceline.com and seriously our commercials are lazy.
