    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.

    Former Employee - Customer Care Representative
    Former Employee - Customer Care Representative

    I worked at Priceline.com

    Pros

    Some of the best immediate supervisors I've ever worked with, interesting and often enjoyable work.

    Cons

    Schedule is very difficult for anyone with family, health issues, or any kind of life outside of the workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High turnover is probably tied to stress regarding scheduling practices. It's not really fair to expect Customer Care staff to be available 24/7 when management, office staff, etc. work "bankers' hours".
