    I worked at Priceline.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very lax'd work environment in regards to start time. Most managers are incompetent since they get promoted from within with very little or no management training.

    Cons

    Management unable to properly gauge good from bad technical talent. The environment tends to be status qua in regards to technology. No longer has the feel of an eCommerce site, but feels more like an insurance or banking institution. Company is very frugal with buying decisions and picks price over quality with regards to buying decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with new management layers and go back to a flat model. The new reorg has bloated the company with regards to executive decision red tape. To much middle management introduced in regards to employee management ratio. This leads to slow decision making process as well as delivery times associated with project delivery times.
