    I have been working at SmarterTravel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co-workers and teammates are awesome. Compensation and benefits vastly exceed expectations I had only a few years ago. Engineering team is strong with many knowledgeable engineers to learn from and as a bonus they're mostly all nice people too. Opportunities to work on new products and ideas arise fairly frequently. Technology stack is fairly fresh and engineering management is pretty good about introducing new technologies and giving devs opportunities to try out new stuff.

    Cons

    Engineering is stretched a little thin and senior management tends to push for pretty aggressive deadlines, which leads to some folks on the engineering team being stretched a little thin.

    Pros

    Great benefits as they are the same as TripAdvisor (sub company) and really nice office. Beer, wine, snacks available for free and generally nice co-workers

    Cons

    Management!! The new GM is very difficult to say the least!! Many times it seems like he makes a quick decision without council of others only to create more work for people and then he blames others when something fails. Also the senior management team seems clueless most of the time. They are nice people (mostly) but don't seem like the most qualified, just the longest tenured.

    Pros

    You can move upward / forward in direct correlation to your level of effort. Fantastic General Manager.

    Cons

    Originally was a 'start-up' and has lost much of that feel as it becomes 'corporate' and lagged down in red-tape with the addition of new senior management.
