    great place to work

    Pros

    great culture they really value the individual contributor, good work life balance, snacks in the breakroom, nice building to work in

    Cons

    There are 2 sides of VRBO, the dev side and then everyone else. When I left there was a rift between the sides. The dev team would often roll out new code with out ever talking to everyone else and often break things. The dev team was slow to respond to the broken code and left everyone else to find ways around the broken code.

    Loved my time here, but struggling recently

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, opportunities to work on many different things and flesh out ideas, surrounding by helpful, smart people

    Cons

    When I started several years ago, Vrbo (HomeAway at the time) was in its heyday -- it felt like a startup but with lots of money to spare. These days it feels like it lacks direction and its glory days are behind it. Constant feeling of being the loser in the industry.

    Pros

    There really are no pros, unless you are outside of the Customer Experience department.

    Cons

    Terrible and antagonist middle management, no work life balance or flexibility for individual contributors, absolutely no interaction with other departments, unending lip service to company culture while providing a completely antithetical culture.
