    Pros

    Building has a solid cafe, not bad parking, nice building, company Christmas party.

    Cons

    They pigeon-hole you into position. Barely any mobility, waiting forever for promotions, terrible benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More career development! Focus on employees instead of brining in external people!

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

    Pros

    Priceline is on solid ground and doing very well. Very focused on innovation and collaboration, makes it a very fun and enjoyable work. Most members of Senior management are dialed in to the employees and do their best to recognize accomplishments and reward accordingly.

    Cons

    There are several people in the company who have been with Priceline for a long time and who are very stuck in their ways. The company has spent a great deal of time, money, and effort to "modernize" itself and create a more tech based environment. Unfortunately, many of the legacy employees, and several who should be real advocates for change, simply just don't get it! It may be time for them to move on!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at legacy employees and take an honest assessment of their "fit" for the new priceline.com.

    I have been working at Priceline.com full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Priceline has been a fantastic place for me to learn and grow over the past 10+ years. My colleagues are intelligent and passionate about our business. I have learned much from my peers and continue to do so every day. Employees who deliver successful results are rewarded and the company prefers to promote from within. Over the past 18 months, senior management has led a positive cultural change to redefine the direction of the company, including our values, work environment and increase employee engagement.

    Cons

    In the past, the company's focus on cost control made us successful, however investment in employee development was not a top priority. This has changed recently and Sr. Mgmt. is now supporting training initiatives and is also supporting hiring additional talent where needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue supporting training opportunities for staff and widen the amount of training offered.

    I worked at Priceline.com full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people and culture. Priceline participate in a lot of charity events which is great. The work life balance is very good, you can work from home at times. This is the place where you want to start your career but definitely not end it there. get some experience and run for the hill when your ready.

    Cons

    Outdated technology, they seem to like to build their own tool when there's already better open source applications out there. Management is just terrible. Some manager are very disrespectful and HR does nothing so don't expect support. No reward for hard work, random firing although that's pretty new. If your in IT, be aware of this place. I would never recommend anyone to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider replacing some of your manager, being at a job too long may cloud someone judgment and how to work with others. The simple fact that there are so many openings should give you a reason to worry ( as of 4/14/2013).

    Pros

    Smart, friendly people, most of whom are trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Power of ever growing 'conversion' team - most of whom don't know the travel industry and have little guidance. Unrealistic views about headcount required in other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do another employee satisfaction survey.
