    Pros

    I have never worked somewhere with so many interesting, intelligent, inclusive and collaborative people like here!

    Keep up the great work!

    Thanks for the feedback. You're right, our maternity leave coverage is very competitive. Overall, our benefits package tend to be progressive - which is one of the many reasons I love working here!... More

    Pros

    Terrific culture and benefits. Good people and good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity in Dallas office. Not a tech company.

    Advice to Management

    The org structure needs some work. It is not scaleable and we need to focus more on technical resources over business resources.

    Pros

    Global Company , Good office environment, Fair pay and benefits

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems disjointed, like not every one is on the same page

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice if there were more options in the Dallas Office. Career options are limited if you can't or don't want to move.

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

    Pros

    Health benefits, catered lunch every Wednesday in Dallas, free coffee, soda, juice, tea, break room had ping pong, fooseball, xbox. Company is at the forefront of the travel industry, it's doing great things. Work hard, play hard.

    Cons

    Management constantly changes their mind and are micro managers, making it hard to get anything done. 10 different people want buy in on every project making it impossible to please everybody which delays timelines and you don't end up owning the project yourself. There is no HR in the Dallas office, it's in London, so if you have an issue it's not a high priority because they are not there to visually witness something. If you have managers in London and you work in Dallas, you will be forgotten about and it's harder to promote quickly because they don't see you working your tail off every day, they only see end results because they're so far removed. More corporate positions are in London than Dallas, so very difficult to rise up the ranks in Dallas.

    Some management lacks EQ resulting in abusive behaviour
    Global company but expectation at head offices in London are to conform to British norms of communication, anti-enthusiasm and repressive tendencies

    Watch out for teams with high turn over. Consider the management.

    Pros

    There are awesome opportunities for growth and movement.

    Cons

    Constant change requires extremely flexible scheduling and though work/family life balance is promoted at a corporate level, the challenge is being flexible with scheduling and incorporating this work/family life balance.
