I worked at Booking.com full-time

Pros

Decent training program, and have remained close with the associates in my training class.

Cons

Management that really go against what the company claims. Instead of looking out for the interests of their team and crafting a development plan, they are consistently looking out for their own self-interests. I received an enormous amount of work to complete in a very short amount of time, received little to no praise for the work I completed, and never felt valued by the company for the short time I was there.

Advice to Management

Please phrase your job descriptions more accurately in the future; a Coordinator should not be as administrative and clerical as mine ended up being. Also, serve as a mentor for your team and be relationship builders as managers. I was very unhappy with my experience at Booking.com, from day 1 until I left the company.

    I have been working at Booking.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work, lots of free time to throw balls at each other and goof off and make fun of people. It's like high school all over again.

    Cons

    Management is pathetic (especially Areas and most Seniors, they can't even use the system themselves in most cases); hard work and intelligence goes unnoticed if they don't like you for whatever reason; promises are a dime a dozen, US management doesn't follow the company culture in any sense of the word; unrealistic goals (who's coming up with this? DO THEY HAVE ANY TYPE OF REVENUE ANALYST BACKGROUND??); did I mention empty promises and crap managers who spend all their time developing themselves and leave the less informed employees to be trained by their colleagues? Oh, and the pay is pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    1) move to an island in the Pacific 2) stay there
