I worked at Hotwire full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Hotwire has a great product with many years of experience.

Cons

Reduction in staff in 2013 was not expected and hard for everyone in the company whether you are still there or not.

    I have been working at Hotwire full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good co-workers. Free soft drinks. Jeans ok. Ok location.

    Cons

    As someone mentioned below " In my 8 years of experience never seen an HR so bad". Would agree with that. HR is not helpful and on top of that their attitude does not help. If you say you are leaving they will treat you like their family enemy. Work-life balance are non-existent depending on the group. Salary is not up to market.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some training to the HR. They are taking their job for granted.


  2. "Good place to work; results-driven"

    I worked at Hotwire full-time

    Pros

    Culture at the company is very friendly and not nearly as political as other places. The company respects work-life balance, while still offering challenging opportunities. The company is very focused on metrics and results-driven.

    Cons

    As a mid-size company, opportunities for advancement are not very structured or clear. One really needs to take responsibility for one's own career development rather than depend on support from above. To get the best projects, one really needs to have the mentality of a self-starter.
