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

    Pros

    This is the best company I've worked in my career, the culture is extremely good, everyone lives and breathe the values. It's the only company I know that really put the customer first at the heart of decisions, even if the decision could hurt profit, it's all about the traveler experience. Lot of great technology and big scale systems, which is a dream for Engineers. Genuine opportunity to make an impact in the world via changing Travel. Great offices. Fail forward culture. I keep learning like the first day and that is priceless for me, a lot of smart people to learn from. Strong people focus.

    Cons

    I can't see any, I guess that is very fast paced, but it is an Industry characteristic.

    Pros

    People have lots of potential. Work from home. Decent comps and benefits.

    Cons

    Squads are tiny dreadful feuds ruled with an iron fist by manipulative masters and their minions. Lying and bulling is the norm. Colleagues are thrown one against the other by means of lies and false promises. Working in some of them is unbearable.
