    I have been working at Skyscanner full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Changes. Some might pull it to 'cons', but it is what makes the company succeed and an employee to stay for many years - company changes all the time. Lots of opportunities for horizontal movement and learning news skills up to complete change of what you do.
    People. International gang of highly motivated individuals with ambitions, but also with a friendly attitude.
    Benefits. Lots of cool things in the office and corporate culture that smartly add up to 'goes-without-saying' good salary.

    Cons

    Changes? No, just joking.
    Just bring on more people to execute all the nice things that we planned for.

  • Why Skyscanner changed to a Growth Focus

    Why Skyscanner changed to a Growth Focus - Skyscanner Growth - Medium

    Abandoning conventional wisdom Skyscanner reached a point in late 2014 when, despite having a healthy number of very talented marketing experts, we just weren't achieving the growth rates we knew our product was capable of.
