    I worked at FindHotel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Positive, safe and caring work environment where anyone can speak out and feel heard. Great international colleagues: smart, open-minded and fun but also very serious about their job. The leadership will make everything they can to help you grow in a position where you are fulfilled and can bring your best to the company while having a good time. Lot of transparency, trust, freedom and ownership. The company...

    Cons

    As a scale-up evolving on a highly competitive market and with a team composed of people really into their craft, the emphasis is too much on work, overlooking the fun part and social interactions between teams and colleagues. The leadership is now well aware of that and trying hard to change it. Can get too hectic sometimes, with too much responsibility and work ending up on the shoulders of a few people.

    Pros

    FindHotel is an ideal place to learn or develop in almost any role. The scale and scope of the problems you get to work on every day are rare for such a small team, and you'll have plenty of chances to grow. The leadership of the company are truly motivated to build a meaningful company that can have an impact on the world of travel, and while they are sometimes quite risk averse they aspire each day to great things....

    Cons

    The company is still making the difficult transition from what was basically a marketing company into a company with a truly world-class product. Too often what is marketable wins over what would be good for the customer, and customers are treated still too much as "clicks" into the product. I am sure this will change as the company has made a big push on this subject in 2018. Currently the company are quite bad at...
