    Pros

    Kiwi.com is a fast growing company with a huge potential where are appreciated people with a continuous improvement mentality. People have an opportunity to grow within the company.

    The growth is happening too fast that employees have hard time to keep up with all the updates and changes.

    Pros

    Even tho Kiwi is corporate now, you can still feel the sense of startup. We are family after all.

    Cons

    The position of a travel consultant can be very frustrating sometimes.
    Kiwi changes and grows very quickly, therefore you have to be ready for many changes and Kiwi has to work on change management.

    Advice to Management

    Please, work on internal communication and change management.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kiwi.com full-time

    Pros

    Somewhat reasonable work from home policies for engineering

    Cons

    No room for improvement. The company mostly hires junior, underpaid developers.
    The juniors come from abusing the goodwill of existing Kiwi.com engineers, by letting them volunteer their own free weekend time for "Python Weekends", workshops where people are taught Python to then be hired by Kiwi.com.
    Too much bureaucracy for no clear reasons.
    Lack of transparency from a business POV.
    Handled like a family, people have careers because they know people, not because they're good.

    Although the focus is probably to be a big name in travel, I can confidently say I don't see it happening.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people.
    You aren't a snowflake. It's only gonna be a matter of time people realise this is no longer a startup, but a corporate where having your own thoughts is not encouraged.
    Once you embrace that and realise you cannot sell the startup mentality anymore to your employees, I hope people will be less disappointed as their expectations will lower.
