    Pros

    The best things were the happy hours and free trips. Found some good friendships that continued after the job.. Steady income.

    Cons

    Where to begin with the cons. Have you ever seen the movie "Mean girls," or the 80's movie "Heathers"? These movies are about one small click ruling the entire school and no one is allowed in this click, or accepted if the click doesn't approve. This is exactly what this office is like, except the click isn't your coworkers, they are upper management, or the " leadership team" as they like to call themselves. No one can move up within the office unless you bow down and become their puppet. They pretend to be your friend and give you the sense to trust, until they get all they need from you and hang you out to dry. They give you false hopes of moving up, ask you for advice on projects and insight to take the credit for themselves later. Starting from the area manager to the seniors. They all greet you with fake smiles, and set up agendas to get rid of you. If you want to be part of this office and move up, I have some advice. Join all their soul cycling classes, and sing along to all their songs while at the office, this is the only way they will take you seriously. In the end it doesn't matter what you do, if they don't like you, you are out of there. It doesn't matter how much you have done, it doesn't matter how much you know about the job. They rather hire people from the outside for a position than promote from within, but part of the formula is no outsourcing.. Sounds a bit contradicting if you ask me. but hey, what do I know, I'm just a person who proved their worth for years and continuously was told No, only because I chose not to have stool breath from kissing theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Management is a complete joke, they need to really invest in training on how to really handle their employees. They need to learn not to mix emotions with work, and to give credit where is due. They should focus more on the morale of the office instead of where to go drinking at, or what song is playing, or what remodeling they did over the weekend. They need to learn how to deal with tough situations instead of handling it like children and point fingers and not take any responsibility for their mistakes. A way Better idea is not to hire management who have no prior experience and are a bunch of emotional 20 something's that base all their decisions on impulse and how they feel that day.

    Pros

    I like the solidarity found in each booking.com member. There is enthusiasm and constant support.

    Cons

    It is a non-stop, fast growing company. Adapting to this environment can be challenging. Although, adapting allows you to grow along.
