    Pros

    I really enjoyed working in the ebookers team in Dublin. The team spirit was exceptional with everyone working together and helping each other out. Benefits were great and management was very approachable and reasonable.

    Cons

    Once ebookers was snapped up by Expedia in late 2015 it was decided that they did not need our office in Dublin any longer. Although we got a chance to discuss time frames and exit packages, HR (on both ebookers and Expedia's side) weren't open with us from the start and when asked for specific information tried to stall us.

    Pros

    Homeoffice, great salary, nice people to work with. International environment, traveling in different offices. You can also get more responsabilities and expect to be promoted.

    Cons

    Lots of micro management. No real advantage regarding personal travel. Nothing negative a part from that to say. I had a great time working there and will recommand it easily.

    Advice to Management

    Take into account what has been said during the survey feedback, it is not just to say we have requested one but it is more to show that you are taking into consideration what has been said by your employers and how we can change things.

    I worked at ebookers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great and we have amazing colleagues and true talent. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    It started off very well until Expedia has taken over. After the restructure, there are only terrible planning and bad communication left. The management have no idea what you do and if anything goes wrong, they simply blame the staff.
