I worked at Hotwire full-time

Pros

Great people, strong individualized culture, definitely promotes work/life balance. It's a very friendly company with some smart people. Great SF city location.

Cons

Probably not as innovative as it thinks it is, which results in a lot of turnover in Engineering. Not as much accountability as you'd expect either with regards to product launches. Also groups are pretty siloed with not as much cross-depatrment communication

Advice to Management

Listen to the ranks even more. Pay better.
