    I have been working at Vrbo full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Large company with a small company mentality. I am an integral part of the company and not just there to work. It is also nice to have breakfast provided every Friday.

    Cons

    They only have tacos every other Friday.

    There may be tacos only twice a month, but we gotta show some love to kolaches and bagels!

    Great team. Great flexibility and great benefits. Always snacks available and the work culture is very relaxed and easy to fit into.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Vrbo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, vacation time is above average which is great. Great offices, some really great people.

    Cons

    The people in every department other than sales seem to absolutely love their jobs. There are currently 3 sales departments - FRBO Sales, Small PM and Large PM which are all managed differently and have different expectations for work/life balance and rate of pay. In FRBO, the overtime is capped but most need to work overtime in order to even hit 100% of quota. This team is micro-managed at 3 different levels and the overall energy is low and mostly negative. The FRBO Sales Team are paid at entry level and although they have accelerators on commission, it is rare to over attain as the quotas are extremely high and increase each month. Small and Large PM Sales are on a much more laid back level that encourage freedom and flexibility to work regular hours, not click in/out and are not micro-managed at all. Favoritism is HUGE at HomeAway! A promotion will not be given regardless of tenure and attainment unless you have taken each of the Directors and Managers for lunches. This is openly advised by lower level Managers, in order to be given favor for promotions. Cross-functional communication is horrible and it seems that even within one team, the Managers are not all on the same page.

    Pros

    Love the people, culture, and the product! This company definitely rewards those who work hard and go above and beyond in their role. I feel really lucky to work with such a smart bunch of individuals and I am grateful for all of the perks (free food, free vacation rental once /yr, etc.).

    Cons

    Cross-departmental communication could be better.

    Pros

    Good benefits, relaxed working environment, continuous training and mentoring provided. If you are consistently transparent about your career goals and work hard to over attain your quota, they will help you with opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Pay is average for a company of its' size and caliber. Quotas are aggressive and commission is capped.

    Pros

    HomeAway is the first company that I have ever worked for that does what is says it will do. They foster an environment of career development. They make a genuine effort to accommodate work life balance. They offer challenging work in a fast-moving and new industry. The leadership knows what they are doing and they communicate with their employees consistently.

    Cons

    Accelerated growth sometimes outpaces the infrastructure required to handle it but this is a good challenge to have.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great: great health insurance, dental, vision, vacation, life insurance. The offices are nice. They bring in breakfast every friday, and provide ongoing training.

    Cons

    If you are working in frbo sales, pm sales or customer service departments there is no work life balance. You must clock in and clock out everyday like you are working your very first job. If you work in any of these departments be prepared to stay there. It is highly unlikely you will ever get the chance to work in another department or get promoted. Even though you could easily work from home it is not allowed in these departments. Managers are young and play favorites. Salary is entry level and if you are in sales, your commissions are capped. Systems crash a lot and seem patched together.
