    I have been working at Despegar.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Very diverse and awesome tech stack (java, kotlin, scala, nodejs, linux, Cassandra, MongoDB, Redis, etc)... Microservice oriented architecture...
    - Very important product company..Is a tech unicorn
    - Depend on the team, but openness on adapting different technologies
    - Good people in general

    Cons

    - Lately, the company is declining in many aspects...It doesn't know how to innovate anymore, it just thinks on improving market share in their business...its a management problem really
    - Burocracy, we are now a big enterprise
    - A lot of the best people Despegar had in the last years is lefting the company, and nobody is doing nothing...Its depressing
    - The coronavirus impacted and will continue to impact badly to the tourism industry, we don't know right now what will happen, but it looks bad
