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

    Pros

    The knowledge and the expertise is impressive across all the teams; each and every employee sincerely embodies the company mission, trustfully share its values and constantly does a terrific job to make them real, focusing on the customer as it's final goal. There is a continuous effort to raise the bar and, as a software engineer, delivering results for this company has been an incredibly rewarding experience. The feeling...

    Sometimes keeping the focus was not so easy but the company is aware of that and it's getting better and better

    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...

    Advice to Management

    - Keep building towards more trust, autonomy and independence for each team. You hired great people, make sure they shine - Expand your network of advisors (and eventually board members), lean on the network you have more

    Pros

    Fast growing company. Extremely transparent. Even in the "not-so-good" moments, it was always clear for everyone where the company stand and what it means for the team Super talented people. Lots of great colleagues to work and learn with. Fun environment: besides the regular perks such as a pool table, craft beer on-tap and yearly company trips, we do have a fun time while working Great culture for exapts: since...

    Cons

    There used to be a frequent change of focus/direction, but it's getting better and better as the company matures and the path looks more clear. With the growth of the company, some nice traditions are going away.

    Advice to Management

    While we keep our big inspiring dreams, the extreme transparency and hard work culture, I'll be happy to be here!

    Pros

    Transparent and clear company goals. Really nice office in the beautiful city of Amsterdam, equipped with table tennis, pool table, and darts. 5PM beers, Friday dinners, birthday gifts & cakes.

    Cons

    Small company, so only a few people to learn from in your field. In some cases working without well-established processes (but also continuously searching for best workflows and practices)

    Pros

    Startup environment on top of a consolidated business, which keeps looking for innovation and improvement. Great people to work with. Beautiful office in the center of Amsterdam.

    Cons

    Not the place for making a career out of it (if you consider that a con).

    I have been working at FindHotel

    Pros

    Every single employee plays a major role in the overall performance. It is a very transparent company and it is easy to be aware of how the company is doing and where it should be leading to. New ideas are implemented rapidly and there is considerable freedom for people to propose and pursue new projects. If you have good ideas there will be no one in your way to putting them in practice. It's also a fun place to work...

    Cons

    It's a small company so everybody works simultaneously in (too) many projects. The result is that it is not always easy to collaborate effectively. Work hours are very flexible but this also means that in practice most people end up working long hours. Compensation and benefits are worse than in the larger companies Innovative Travel is competing with. However, if the company does very well, compenstation growth potential...

    Advice to Management

    The management has lots of good ideas but sometimes this means loosing focus on the key priorities. I would try to limit the number of ongoing projects as much as possible. It would also help to spend more time planning projects, for instance by defining more clearly the project members/project lead, and the expected project milestones.

    Pros

    While almost all of the people working here are in their mid or end twenties this is a company that competes on a world-class level. What I appreciate most is that my colleagues are diverse and very intelligent. We have different backgrounds, both in terms of nationality / culture as well as studies and former work experience; nevertheless, we are a like minded group that is relaxed, fun-loving and sharp. This is definitely...

    Cons

    You don't have too many colleagues so it's very important you feel comfortable with the few people you work closely with. We are highly specialized in PPC / Search Engine Marketing for Hotel Meta-Search so you need to be able to develop an interest in this topic down to the details; you don't get to think about completely new industries / business models every half year like with a consultancy or so.
