    I have been working at PriceGrabber.com full-time

    Pros

    PriceGrabber is big on our work life balance, great people, great benefits. Makes for a good place to work.

    Cons

    Morale is getting better, but we could do more to work across teams. Instead of the culture where there's a group to blame - it would be good if we all considered problems something we'd solve together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better transparency would be good, but I like our new business plans and I want our leadership to trust our employees to sharing more information so that we can figure out where we can bring ideas ourselves.

    I have been working at PriceGrabber.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pricegrabber is not complacent. We are always looking to improve and we are willing to try new things. It is a fantastic place to work due to an amazing company culture. There are been numerous employees promoted to senior level and management roles and some who have started in entry level positions that have worked there way to management. If you work hard you will be rewarded

    Cons

    Not the best location, lack of food options. There has been a great deal of change at PG over the last few years but frankly it was needed. With change some people struggle to adapt and that has lead to some turnover however there is a vision of where we are looking to go and we are bringing in the talent to get us there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be transparent about the direction of the company.

    I have been working at PriceGrabber.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Flexibility in schedule (no one is every at work - go to tech on a Friday at 11 am)
    - Great coworkers, snacks and insurance
    - Bosses that work only half the week and are low stress

    Cons

    - Outdated product which doesn't monetize
    - CEO who has never worked a online business, and doesn't understand success metrics
    - No visibility with revenue or profit internally, or success of new projects/products
    - Tech team which shifts the blame to anyone near them
    - Outdated team structures
    - Legacy tech/PM mgmt issues from corporate experian days (they sold PriceGrabber back in 2012 - and PG could't save itself)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When numbers are as bleak as they look, jump. Even purchasing an fashion app (which all the founders and employees who started it left) won't help. The 80%+ slide in profit will continue because the new products are deemed outdated when the launch. JUMP.

    I worked at PriceGrabber.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, free snacks, exciting break room. Flexible with time off/life balance

    Cons

    Do not provide necessary tools, resources, innovation, tech/bug support to be successful in role. They claim there is great opportunity, but most moves are lateral (if any), even demotions in job responsibility due to recent restructuring. Overall poor office morale with a heightened sense of entitlement in regards to client account distribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent with tech issue updates, lead by example, be proactive and not reactive

    Fun for a short while, but people move on pretty quick

    I worked at PriceGrabber.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Young energetic tech company. They try to make it a fun place for people who starts there. Might be a great place to learn about sales as it has a large sales department

    Cons

    People work in their own islands. Senior members are who made the big bucks, new people are often ignored and used until they quit. Many lack people skills and the people who works there the longest only wants to relate to people who are the same. Too much fighting between ranks. Sales people do not make much money, and often leave in about a couple of months.

    I worked at PriceGrabber.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    PG has some of the best coworkers that I've ever worked with. Everyone here become great friends, which is hard to say about many companies. Company and HR work hard to make the fun culture continue throughout the years.

    Cons

    Company has lacked growth in recent years. Flexibility for lateral job switches, but not much for professional growth. Some transparency issues from the top. Inconsistent tools disrupt productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to get people motivated and find new ways for company to grow.
