    I worked at Despegar.com part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment. Good company for an unexperienced developer.

    Cons

    It used to be a really nice place to work until a big restructure in 2015. Much of the work talent escaped shortly after. Salaries were not that competitive. Offices in Parque Patricios might result in quite a travel for many of us. Not much career growing opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your experienced human resources. If you don't, an other company will.
