24/7 Fire Drill

(Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsGenerally hard working group of people that care about each other and have a "Get it done" personality

Company has broad reach across the travel industry

Good mix of talents

Good office location in downtown SF

ConsWeak planning leads to fire drill mentality all the time and leaves no room for innovative products

Devs are treated well and held in high regard (warranted or not), other teams, not so much

No clear standard on employee growth and progression, unqualified people promoted.

Cronyism among ex Hotwire and Travelocity senior management combined with a non-travel CEO stifles innovation. Programs to change lead innovation have been started and discontinued

Stale product - boring from the tech side of things

Lack of an on boarding and program creates sloppy work and makes it difficult to grow new hires - be prepared to make friends quickly to train yourself

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to focus on providing tools, processes, and leadership that enable employees to be successful.

Less focus on spending to entertain customers and others in the tech industry

Be clear about corporate goals and objectives - monthly repeats of canned information is not the way to go

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
