    Pros

    friendly group of people, not cutting edge technically, looking to get a bit better each day.

    Cons

    slightly cliquish, nice people all around though. At good companies you'll find synergy between groups, here there is some politics between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none, they have handle on things.

    I worked at Hotwire full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great building and location, good compensation, work/life balance, travel discounts. Recently transitioned from Waterfall to Agile software development which is much more transferable to other tech companies.

    Cons

    Employees are low energy and generally seem stuck in a rut. Hotwire sells a fun, smart culture, but many who progress through the ranks to management and senior management or are awarded recognition as representing Hotwire's core values do the bare minimum amount of work and rarely attend company events. Hotwire is a steady stream of income for its parent company (Expedia) and goals, products, and initiatives play it safe to keep the revenue coming in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the amount of middle management, encourage education and skills development.
