    Pros

    Those reasons don't exist any more.

    Cons

    IT jobs at Priceline being shipped away to India, Canada. Technology group had a major reorg and layoff in the Data department. This includes someone on H1 who was hired about 18 months back. Everyone in the IT Department feels insecure, which team is next?

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Priceline.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Holiday/ cultural Parties. Norwalk Gym Access. Smart colleagues. Interesting projects depending on the department you're with. Lynda access. Okay health benefits. Transportation benefits. ie: train shuttle, MTA refund ext. WFH 2x per month (may be diff depending on mgr) 401k w/ 3 % match. Parental leave. Equity (depends on position)

    Cons

    Your mgr might take credit for your work. No career growth, no plan, not many promotions. Unless you're already a manager. Backed by Booking but lacks resources so you will wear many hats but deadline is expected to be met (this depends on if you're in a scrum team or not). Agile has been accommodated to fit Priceline so you may be in a team the supports multiple scrum teams/multiple projects. Reviews do not apply to managers. Very political and very much a 'boys club'. There are a couple of women in leadership positions which is great but not enough in the 'lower ranks' and that could be better specifically in Engineering.

    I worked at Priceline.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong business outlook for the company as a whole. Good Benefits and decent time off (although no sick days policy was questionable).

    Cons

    Very hierarchical. Look out for backstabbing. Managers often not receptive to feedback. Innovation is requested but rarely supported or implemented. Still not sure what Priceline's differentiation is within other travel sites but being part of Booking Holdings helps.

  8. "Good place to grow with the company"

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Priceline.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Great work life balance resulted from the scientific management system (Agile and Quarterly goals) 2. Great benefits 3. Friendly environment to learn new technology and knowledge 4. As the company is still growing per business and technology, the business requirements will push you to jump outside comfort zone and learn continuously 5. Strong supports from Booking Holdings sibling companies which makes the company have great potentials 6. People are friendly, company structure is kind of flat, and offices doors are all open, so your voice will be heard by any level if you want

    Cons

    1. Company does not have formal program to cultivate fresh graduates, so most of the new blood of the company comes from other companies. 2. As most of the positions empty after people left are filled with experienced people from outside(both individual contributor and management tracks), so the culture of the company is a mixture as different team leaders are having different cultures inside teams. 3. As management positions are not filled from inside, during the management change, there will be contradictory plans showing up especially in details (the same direction from high level, but different opinions of how to achieve the goals). 4. All of the reasons above make the career development path inside the company not very clear, especially for management track

    I have been working at Priceline.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It has been more than 5 years I'm working here. It is a great company. Work culture and benefits are fantastic. CEO knows what he is doing. Very good leadership team. You can easily get recognized by the leadership team if your work is good and if your manager is not taking credits for all your efforts. 

    Cons

    Payscale can get better. Living costs in Norwalk/Stamford area are pretty high due to its proximity to NYC.  I have heard of very bad things from Business teams(especially hotels). If you are joining for analytics, think twice. It is not a place to be. Many people who joined recently are trying to take credits for other's work and sustaining.  Hotels Business Head has no idea how to drive the business, what data we have, nor a vision for the team. He is just trying to cover up things. This team didn't need one more Project manager to micro-manage the team. Even though none of them are happy with this, no one is raising their voices because the dept head has warned them of adverse effects. (dirty politics)
