    I worked at OpenTable

    Pros

    Nice people, nice location, decent holidays/time-off, some decent leadership at times, some growth but not much.

    Cons

    Lost the culture from top to bottom, this is now a marginal service for most. Bad support in UK and Europe.

    I have been working at OpenTable full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relaxed and fun work environment, great morale, work/life balance is superb. Tons of vacation time, management is always extremely understanding.

    Cons

    Benefits/compensation/perks needs to be better for a Bay Area tech company that is doing extremely well. There needs to be more transparency and structure to positions/promotions/raises and more emphasis on employee progress and career goals. Most people tend to leave due to better pay elsewhere or lack of or slow progression/promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to retain current employees by offering competitive compensation and benefits. Internal growth also needs to be stressed so that employees feel like they have a career here and are compelled to stay.
