    I have been working at Agoda full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    fast paced.
    innovative
    high IQ environment

    Cons

    bosses constantly sneak inn at your desk, they stare at your screen, if they see you talking on phone , if they are around , they will pick words from your conversation and ask whom were you talking to. Managers manager share 360 review scores and who wrote what about them, becomes difficult to work with the manager later. openly get threatened on to work closely with specific individuals and not to interact with other seniors , not a cordial environment to work inn. Biased very openly on same people getting opportunity. openly threatening of losing job. always pointing mistakes, no public appreciation. take our ideas and show others that you telling them what to do. very difficult to reach out to senior bosses as we fear they will tell immediate boss whats being reported. our boss share salary details with TL , the TL says openly i decide who gets promoted , particular TL's team has maximum raise and promotions. top boss in the destination makes other people fight with each other.. wrong actions by TL's are never confronted even if you reach out to his manager. i cant even write the country name as i dint want to lose my job

    Advice to Management

    please do find time to talk to MM's and admin's and hear them out. they are afraid of their bosses , fear doesn't drive growth

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Agoda full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) MNC feel
    2) Customer centric. They really value their customers and do anything and everything to make them happy but sadly don't have the same approach fro employees!!

    Cons

    1) Too much internal politics which is annoying as you are hardly judged on your performance and mostly on how much you butter the senior management

    2) Employee feedback is a scam as they don't take any suggestions positively and keep taunting employees instead

    3) Office space is bad as it lacks basic things Iike coffee machine and also has no employee engagement activities like rest zone, games etc. They are redoing Bangkok HQ but ignoring other locations as usual.

    4) No employee off sites or activities expect Bangkok which is the HQ. They discriminate between their offices locations.

    5) Racism all across the company as they are against people from developing countries and treat them badly. Pay them badly and don't prefer them for senior roles even though they are skilled and perform well

    6) Limited growth if you are working anywhere except Bangkok

    7) Salaries are the worst in online travel industry and they base salaries on your age and not on your skills and performance.

    8) Your ideas are never welcome in this company. One bad move and you are gone. They put you on notice.

    9) Lacks a dynamic CEO, change is needed but Priceline.com doesn't care as they are more focused on b.com

    10) No clear goal or vision. Change strategy every day

    Advice to Management

    1) Treat everyone the same and stop judging people based on their nationality, looks, gender and race

    2) Restructure your salaries and bring them at par with other companies or all good people will leave you.

    3) Start employee engagement activities in other offices and not just in Bangkok

    4) Stay focused on one thing at a time and learn from your big sister b.com
