    Pros

    Priceline.com is a great place to be. Very entrepreneurial, collaborative culture. Each person is really free to drive new features and products to the consumer. And many opportunities to work with other Booking Holdings companies.

    Cons

    Lean organization that can be tough getting your projects through but on you to push and champion

      Pros

      First, the people! Supportive and engaging team culture - a true delight to come to work every day and collaborate across teams. I have never worked with such a diverse group of bright, funny people before. Second, the business culture! Decision-making includes a blend of creativity and strategic business frameworks that never make me feel like we're pursuing one to the detriment of the other. Work - life balance has...

      Cons

      The location is far away from downtown NYC, which limits the pool of highly technical applicants a bit.

      Pros

      I've been with Priceline for a short period of time now. However, I joined the company because of it's leaders, interesting work in my department and competitive benefits and pay. Those things attracted me to join, but I am now inclined to believe that the culture and opportunities for growth are at the core of why I'd like to stay and continue to develop my career here at Priceline. Great people and truly caring leaders....

      I have been working at Priceline.com full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Some great challenges coming up with the CLOUD transformation happening. The business is complex and requires a lot of good engineering to get it right. Work life balance can be achieved if you don't deal with micro managers like I do.

      Cons

      The lack of a development plan. Most principal engineers are not even seniors. Hiring process is not on par with daily tasks. No communication between teams. Some engineers will do whatever they want to do just because their manager is extremely weak. Low budget company - everything is a struggle - even snacks are a problem.

      Thank you for submitting this review. While I’m disappointed that you sense an absence of communication and are unhappy with your development plan, I am encouraged by the fact that these issues can be discussed and addressed. We have recently rolled out Development Frameworks for ...

      Pros

      Good work life balance Decent pay Relatively easy work

      Cons

      I wouldn’t recommend Priceline if you’re either: 1) Someone focused on leveling up and becoming a better engineer via learning modern practices. Despite the scale the company operates at, you won’t grow here. Hacky and bad code is more than acceptable here as long as it gets the job done. 2) Someone who values collaboration and a supportive culture. Soft skills are not valued at Priceline, you’ll see engineers get promoted...

      We are thankful for feedback even when it is not positive. I would respectfully disagree with your perception that we are an organization that is a good fit for the kind of employee who is looking to coast. We do strive for good work/life balance, so it’s hard to see “9-to-5” as a ...

      Pros

      Priceline is a place where you have the opportunity to become the professional you want to be. The company is highly supportive of initiative and brainstorming. The work/life balance is important as management understands that people have lives and things happen - in return, employees are expected to increase productivity and effort when times demand it. Dress code, attitude and protocol are part of a relaxed workplace...

      Cons

      In recent years, we lost a noticeable number of veterans when upper leadership changed, changing the goals and priorities of some of the departments. Things are just starting to settle back to calm, but the change is still noticeable. We all recognize that change has good intentions, but it must be paced and accepted by those who will be physically enacting the differences. Some employees were terminated, and some...

      Advice to Management

      While the stock benefits and bonuses can be generous when the company is doing well, pay raises have barely kept up with cost of living increases, which in the end is not a raise. Employees need to feel valued both by not only internal praise, but with real economic and job promotion compensation.

      Thanks for your this thoughtful feedback. Priceline has come through a period of change - in particular, a reinvention of our technology stack - that has made the company stronger and more agile. It was not an easy process, but it was necessary and definitely worthwhile. Regarding ...
