I have been working at Hotwire full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Small company
Great location in the downtown San Francisco
Fairly laid back work environment
Very start-up like feel in that everyone sat in a cube including VPs

Cons

Poor salary
Job role not well-defined, not well-respected
No career advancement opportunities beyond Senior Producer
Reporting structure was conflict of interest and made it impossible to do job effectively

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay people market value and define roles more clearly.

    Pros

    Great people, strong individualized culture, definitely promotes work/life balance. It's a very friendly company with some smart people. Great SF city location.

    Cons

    Probably not as innovative as it thinks it is, which results in a lot of turnover in Engineering. Not as much accountability as you'd expect either with regards to product launches. Also groups are pretty siloed with not as much cross-depatrment communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the ranks even more. Pay better.
