    Pros

    Hcom is a fun company to work for with a great culture and good benefits

    Cons

    Dallas is a relatively small office compared to London and Seattle, which makes the office more close-knit, but also means there are less local career opportunities

    Pros

    The company kept us up to date on the direction management was taking us.

    Cons

    Management made changes to our work tasks without an understanding of our process fully which created more problems than they solved.

    Advice to Management

    Bring your employees into the conversation before making changes to their job. They're more than happy to help navigate those desires for changes.

    Pros

    It is a very rewarding company to work if you do exactly what they want you to.

    Cons

    Do not tell any truth to any boss that make him or her to be upset with you because if you leave the company in a good term and after a while wants to return this person will not let you in even thou you pass in all the interviews, hr tells you everything is OK, you will never get the job

    I have been working at Hotels.com full-time

    Pros

    Cool / laid back office space
    Friendly environment
    Everyone seems to have ownership of their areas of responsibility
    Collaboration is encouraged
    Growth oriented
    Lots of freedom
    Good benefits / pay
    Management seems genuinely concerned about employees

    Cons

    While friendly, hard to break through beyond politeness with management or core group of employees.
    Global teams, so many advancement opportunities are on a different continent.
    Can be hard to stay in the loop, especially when most of your team is located elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunities you provide to socialize are awesome (monthly happy hours, lunches, etc), but maybe make an effort to break away from your usual crowd to include people you don't have a chance to speak with as often.

    I have been working at Hotels.com full-time

    Pros

    There's almost nothing bad to say about working in travel. It's an exciting and competitive vertical with strong YoY growth. From a marketing standpoint, it's nice to work on a brand that's so forward thinking.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge, especially for certain teams. Occasionally you run into the usual corporate red tape, which can be a bummer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating! Allow your employees to make day to day decisions and to manage up.

    I have been working at Hotels.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dallas Office
    - Free catered lunch every Wednesday
    - Free pizza once a month on Fridays
    - Happy Hours in the break room once a month
    - Unlimited free coffee, tea, soda, juices,
    - Ping pong, foosball, and video games in the breakroom
    - Very fun group of people
    - Fun holiday activities (easter egg hunt, holiday decorating, halloween costume contests, etc.)

    Cons

    If you work with people in the London office a lot, you have a small amount of overlap time. Communication can also be rough. It's hard to chime in on a phone call when you're the only one in Dallas and there are 10 people on the phone in London. They often forget to include you in on small things they hear in water cooler conversations.

    Pros

    Great co-workers who are fun to work with, intelligent, and very driven. The pay is good and the job comes with lots of perks like monthly happy hours, weekly free lunches, and soft drinks in the office.

    Cons

    Technology and tools are often unreliable which makes it hard to get my job done. Role is not well defined making it difficult to know how I am performing.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the great company culture that makes the work enjoyable and fulfilling. Fix issues with tools and data and make sure responsibilities for each team are more clearly defined.
