I have been working at Hotwire

Pros

- Convenient location, food is close by depending on taste
- Office is well lit, fridge is stocked with drinks
- Stable environment in terms of workload, not many employees sitting around past 7pm

Cons

- Can't keep up with what's going on outside it's environment
- The business can get old really fast due to low innovation
- Managers don't take subordinates seriously enough about the business

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start listening, not just to managers but lower employees. All employees are your eyes and ears to the business world. They see things you might not.

    Pros

    The place is crawling with brainiacs. They may be quiet; they may have their heads down but they're seriously smart. And not just the "new" employees. "Old Timers" didn't get that way from being sub-par performers. It's fun (for me, at least) to know I work with people who could indeed answer all the "impossible" interview questions but don't come off as Mensa nimrods. Just doin' the job, doing it well and having fun while doing it.

    Cons

    I don't want to be a complete Pollyanna, but if one must work, one might as well do it at a place like Hotwire. Like any workplace, a single day can be ruined by an absent-minded co-worker or a tough deadline but, all in all, I think people feel valued and genuinely proud of their company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ummmm....it would be a mistake to say something bad about management, or senior management. Not because I'm afraid (although I do get nervous around Mr. Bason!) but because, from where I sit, things are going well. Really well.
