    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.

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

    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!

    I worked at FindHotel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Good vacation policy - Nice work life balance. Except for a few times when there is an emergency you are not pushed to work crazy hours - A good mix of multiple nationalities which helps you to experience different perspectives - In my case I was in a good team who were very receptive and encouraging in trying out different languages or services in order to find the best fit Fresh graduates can still have a better...

    Cons

    - One of the most unprofessional management teams you can come across - Lack of vision to develop a product. There are no specific benchmarks or outcomes other than maintaining or increasing revenues - A strong tendency to exploit a trend than build a product with focus on the end users. Traditionally this was and is a SEM company completely focussed on online ad campaigns. So there is no concept of retaining users...

    Advice to Management

    This startup has now been in existence for 7 years and is yet to grow into a tech company from a marketing one. There is a systemic problem which leads to entire modules being re-written every 6 months. Focus on the core issues and not the symptoms if this company has any plans to evolve.

    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)
