I have been working at HomeAway full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great people supporting a great product. Wonderful laid-back atmosphere and some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Execs are extremely approachable and an open forum is encouraged. Benefits package is fantastic and travel is actually encouraged.

Cons

The company is growing FAST - generally more of a positive than a negative, but communication between departments could be improved.

    I have been working at HomeAway full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company really cares about its people and I'm not talking about in compensation and benefits - those are definitely on the high end but they actually care about if you're doing okay or not in all aspects of your life.

    Willing to invest in the right technology and people as evidenced by over $50MM in investment every year!

    Very goal-oriented and metrics-driven which in my opinion drives the best companies in the world (along with leadership vision and engaged employees).

    Cons

    Not as big as IBM or Dell but no sweet spot of 200-500 employees where you know everyone. But the size brings benefits in technology investment.

    Pros

    HomeAway does a great job of looking after the employees, providing good benefits and is fun culture.
    It is a global company, so working with teams across the world is very interesting.
    There is never a shortage of new opportunities at HomeAway.
    At the end of the day, we are discussing and looking at vacation rental homes across the globe...how great is that!
    The executive team is sharp and always looking for way to challenge the status quo and improve.

    Cons

    There are many initiatives, so priorities can change on a daily basis. This is really no different than other companies of this size, but for some people a fast paced work environment with competing priorites may not be for them
