    Pros

    Positive environment that focuses on team mentality. Weekly groceries, lots of perks and parties. Flexible hours. Travel to fun places.

    Cons

    Hard to move up without moving cities. Pay is low for the market/position. They talk way too much about feelings/ too much hugging. So odd for a large company. They need to focus on your business results and performance, not personal feelings about each other.

    Advice to Management

    Bonuses/performance should be strictly measured by kpi's and not personal relationships.

    Pros

    PTO is pretty good could be a little better, Smaller office setting in this position, you map out your day for the most part, pretty flexible when you need to adjust your workday. Current managers in this office are super helpful. There are some managers that work well with those that have disabilities that are not physical. Can be super fun to work for. The quarterly bonus is amazing, thank you for having that. Great medical benefits! Free FOOD and snacks! Company parties are amazing and a good chance to relax.

    Cons

    Started in the call center and they are not always as kind as they appear at first. While diverse they need to work on emotional sensitivity with those that have mental disorders. They do not really show much concern in this area both at the manager level and HR level. US locations are forming more and more like corporate America and losing the fun factor it had when I started. Very little structure at this level and no training structure.

    Advice to Management

    With work/life balance being tossed into every conversation be different than the other US companies. Add 6 sick days a year separate from PTO, 3 in the first half and 3 in the second. This allows your employees to use PTO for mental health time and enjoyment not just to save PTO for being sick. You can even make the sick days unpaid, but at least allow employees to feel like they don't have to come to work sick because they want to save PTO for enjoyment. Offer a work from home option. There is enough tracking with the current tools to make sure employees working from home are productive. Some of us work better in cases like this. Add PTO at 3-year level because that is also a long time to be with a company instead of only at the 5-year level. Even if only 2-3 days. Increase pay to fit closer to the cost of living. Thank you for all you are doing that is great, there is just an opportunity for improvement. This company could be a top company to work for with a few changes.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at Booking.com is its culture and values. An amazing place that empower you and helps you to embrace who you are as a professional. The company is always providing trainings to develop your skills. I really love how things changes all the time, not everybody likes it but I love it because there is no way to get bored and beside that you are always learning something new and facing new challenges. I love how the company has been structuring its fields, all internal tools and work around this to improve. The company does everything, go above and beyond to offer the best support ever to partners and guests booking through. Benefits are amazing, getting a percentage off in bookings, help with external trainings, and managers helping with PDP.

    Cons

    The company should be more flexible with locations to work and expand some interesting positions to others countries/regions beyond Amsterdam. Sadly the big annual meeting that used to be in Amsterdam is not happening anymore but I hope the company finds a way to keep the cultural exchange and region experience exchange.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Hard to think of something

    Cons

    Terrible company to work for. Stay far away. No transparency. Even though they claim and aspire to be. More complaints than compliments. Micromanaging bosses.

    Advice to Management

    Get your credit cards verified. It's the least you can do for your hotel partners.
