    Little opportunity for employee growth

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

    Pros

    Innovative people to work with.
    Fast paced, open environment.
    Stock is very strong.

    Cons

    Very little training for new employees which means many of your colleagues have little understanding of how the business works, so a lot of time is spent redoing things.

    Not a lot of accountability. There are a lot of effective, hard workers, but you also have a lot of people that can drop the ball and there are no repercussions which is disheartening for those who are picking up the slack.

    Lack of communication. It's very common to find out about a project after it's already completed and only then is it discovered that requirements were completely overlooked because the relevant groups were not consulted.

    Lack of career growth. There is very little opportunities to move up in the organization or even laterally.

    Many teams are running too lean and it's very difficult to convince upper management to add extra headcount for support teams.

    Lack of direction. Goals are not clearly defined by upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set clear, concise goals and expectations.
    Create a career development plan and train your employees.
    Set a clear concise product vision so your employees know whether they created something successful, are going in the right direction and can feel a sense of accomplishment.
    Recognize your talent.

    I have been working at Priceline.com full-time (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.
