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

    Pros

    There are some truly talented and passionate people who work here that want to build something great.

    If you are motivated to set your own goals and work towards them you can carve a niche for yourself.

    Flexible work hours and lots of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    You may not get much direction or support from management.

    There is a reluctance to deviate from & evolve the model that made this company money close to a decade ago despite an ever changing competitive landscape.

    There are many complacent workers that have had their creativity stifled by years of waterfall management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Setting the overall product strategy and vision for teams to work towards may help to give them a sense of purpose and accomplishment.

    Pros

    Priceline.com is indeed a leader in online travel industry which is an attractive proposition. The work hours are reasonable and the work load isn't too bad.

    Cons

    Outdated technologies make the job more difficult than it really should be. Teams are generally understaffed so everyone is juggling multiple projects at once which burns people out after a while. Too much production support work leaving a little time for actual development.

    Pros

    Very lax'd work environment in regards to start time. Most managers are incompetent since they get promoted from within with very little or no management training.

    Cons

    Management unable to properly gauge good from bad technical talent. The environment tends to be status qua in regards to technology. No longer has the feel of an eCommerce site, but feels more like an insurance or banking institution. Company is very frugal with buying decisions and picks price over quality with regards to buying decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do away with new management layers and go back to a flat model. The new reorg has bloated the company with regards to executive decision red tape. To much middle management introduced in regards to employee management ratio. This leads to slow decision making process as well as delivery times associated with project delivery times.
