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 24 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

    Work life balance, solid stock. Improving backend technology. Giving back to the community. Travel perks! Nice co-workers and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Really tough for women to advance. There are token women in leadership positions but the guys will be promoted faster than women. Unfortunate part is that instead of seeing this as systemic the leadership team dismisses it as disgruntled employees. I hope the Priceline group looks into these charges.

    Advice to Management

    Promote women! Enjoy the benefit of their ideas- it may just be what you need to get the conversion increases you are looking to achieve.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance is great. Priceline.com historically had great emphasis on this although now its changing slowly.

    Cons

    Priceline.com is a company in decline. There is no real vision, just agenda's.
    A lot of employee churn is happening at Priceline and its not for good. Many of the engineers who built Priceline have left. Whoever is left is waiting for RSU's to vest. The tech environment has become toxic and the new CTO is to blame for it.
    There is a lack of clear vision from tech side for the business and more time is spent in trying to block progress than to move towards success (in the name of mordenization and move to cloud). Priceline is going the way Yahoo did 2-3 years back.

    Advice to Management

    Company is going the wrong direction. now is the time to fix it.

    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 ;)

    Pros

    The agile transformation is useful for my next job.

    Cons

    priceline IT is becoming toxic. Especially the "calibration" review process: it allows mangers to play favorite and use non-goal issues to down grade employees. In addition, each group is required to have a set number of 3, 2, 1 rated individuals, regardless of their performance.

    Advice to Management

    Rate individuals as individuals, how well they meet their goals (if they even have them), not compared to their peers. Use objective measures, not subjective mesures.

    Pros

    Historically a Great work-life balance, but slowly dwindling due to new rule of being online 24x7 (slack, email, phone).
    Great stocks and bonus.

    Cons

    New management treats women poorly. Not a place for a female to get ahead, get recognized, or even feel safe in her position.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at your recent management changes. You have some very bad people who are going to hurt your reputation. Treat all employees fairly. Stop promotions based on boys club and go back to performance based.
