  • Motivated People, Healthy work environment (in 10 reviews)

Cons
  • The lack of COO is driving upper management to lose focus on what happens to the customer dollars once they make it in the door (in 6 reviews)

  • Very corporate, hard to move the needle on change (in 3 reviews)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation. Decent travel perks. Shuttles to train station. Free coffee. Bagel Thursdays. Am I at twenty words yet t?

    Cons

    New senior leadership was hired in haste by former CEO who quit the company shortly after. Many depts are left with inept, inexperienced leaders who are struggling to coordinate the efforts across departments and even within their own teams. Stress level 9999

    Advice to Management

    Require some exam for LT to ensure you're not hiring frauds.

    Pros

    Senior leadership is very open and welcoming. No one at the senior level shies away from communicating directly about the business and there's a great forum for submitting questions for the CEO & execs to answer (which they do). There seems to be a clear focus on employees and wanting to make it a great place to work. There is a shared focus throughout the organization on doing the right thing for the customer - in fairness there are opportunities to do things better but it's certainly not for lack of commitment to making changes & improvements.

    Cons

    As a somewhat new person I find there's a contingent of "that's the way we've always done it" people but (on the plus side) management is very supportive of questioning the status quo. Technology tools internally are outdated but (again) there is commitment from leadership to invest and get it done if the 'status quo' people can get on board or get out of the way.

    Advice to Management

    Break down silos - you do a great job communicating at the exec level and I believe there is desire to innovate and evolve; that's not necessarily shared throughout the org so even groups who are on board with that run into roadblocks because others want to maintain status quo.

    Pros

    Priceline.com feels like it’s turning the corner and starting to move forward. It has changed a lot over the past year and I like the direction. Senior management is trying to change the culture to be faster moving and more demanding. It’s hard, but rewarding.

    Cons

    Resources can be scarce. I often feel that we are understaffed. Expectations are reasonable though I wish we had more people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for growth and be open to testing out of the status quo. Invest where it makes sense. Develop an employee recognition program so that overperforming employees get recognized broadly - that is missing today.

    Pros

    Discount on hotel rates for employees

    Cons

    -Engineers are not intelligent.
    -Management does not research before taking up project. Important projects end up being infeasible in the middle and its scrapped resulting in a lot of hard work going to waste.
    - No notion of code review in teams.
    - Feedback is not given on timely basis
    -There are teach managers of teams who have not even looked at code and spend their time with personal stuff during office hours.
    -Office has no area to have fun and relax.( There is 1 ping-pong table and its outdoors, meaning no playing during winter)

    I worked at Priceline.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Summer Fridays, which have been reduced.
    Benefits are decent.
    Decent office environments in NY and CT.

    Cons

    CEO is arrogant and biased against woman. CFO thinks he knows everything about every other function in the business. Both have only ever worked at Priceline, so have no perspective on the world outside of Priceline. CTO is a bully, and the CEO is afraid to stand up to him and do the right thing. People are generally unhappy at all the recent changes, while sr. leaders ride the wave of an ever increasing stock price to line their pockets. HR is ineffective at being able to bring about change . . . really just able to admininister pay, benefits, and basic programs. So happy that I am no longer there.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the CTO before all your best talent leaves.
    CEO should begin to believe there's capability beyond just those who are his pals and members of his church.
    CFO needs charm school.
