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 22 reviews)

  • Incredible resources, friendly people and an exciting/active 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 5 reviews)

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

    Pros

    Great environment to work. A lot of opportunities to learn and experiment. Since it's a national brand with tons of traffic tge company provides a lot of value for developers.

    Cons

    some recent org changes

    Advice to Management

    watch out for micromanagers

    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 ;)

    I have been working at Priceline.com full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have never had a lack of new technology to learn. We scale like a large company, but a lean staff means that you have to keep on your toes. We were too comfortable for a few years, but the new ceo is changing the work culture. We have stronger internal processes, and are getting back more of a startup feel. Benefits are great, with fun activities. A small staff means moving up is very hard.

    Cons

    We tend to be "bottom up" driven, which has its advantages, but can be tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Department staffing is uneven, with some too lean compared to others. We also need even more focus, and employees that resist change are a roadblock.
