Pros
  • Good work life balance, I was surprised some reviewer(s) said they have to be online 24/7 because that's not the case for anyone on my team (in 28 reviews)

  • 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

    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.

    I worked at Priceline.com as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company leadership was in transition a lot during the summer I interned at Priceline, and there were several all-hands meeting I remember where new organizational structures were announced. This was my first formal internship and Priceline set the bar quite high for future ones!

    - Great balance between being mentored, and having autonomy in my team
    - Being able to contribute to the product from day 1
    - Modern design-dev workflow (Sketch and Zeplin were my go-to tools)
    - Being able to see my work go live before I left was really rewarding
    - Generally overall fun atmosphere, low-stress, no expectations of overtime
    - Free snacks, coffee in the NYC office
    - Loved the people I worked with

    Cons

    - Very Large difference in office dynamic between NYC and Norwalk (NYC more product-driven, typical of a west-coast tech company; Norwalk more typical of an older company atmosphere)

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at Priceline.com (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good work life balance, I was surprised some reviewer(s) said they have to be online 24/7 because that's not the case for anyone on my team... depends on manager maybe
    - Modern and evolving tech stack with encouragement for devs to experiment and learn new things
    - NYC office has a lot of smart and nice people and a good location
    - Compensation is fair for the amount of work you are expected to put in

    Cons

    - Claims to award advancement and pay increases for merit, but it's hard to tell if that's the truth or not, and long-term employees are not treated as well
    - Too much focus on process and making the numbers look good
    - Norwalk office environment is not as modern as NYC

    Advice to Management

    - Chillax with the agile stuff
    - Treat long-term loyal employees better with more compensation/pto/snacks/advancement... I've worked here for less than a year and even I can see that new hires are treated better, which is probably one of the main reasons the turnover rate has been high in the last year
    - Give the Norwalk office free snacks ;)
