    I worked at Agoda full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good opportunities to get involved beyond the basics of your role and work with other departments on products, processes or efficiency savings. Start-up like exposure to other departments and offices - Friendly colleagues who are interested to collaborate - Management in Bangkok is a refreshing change to leadership in other regions. The Agoda culture in Bangkok is quite fun, exciting and friendly - There have been changes implemented by local teams (consisting of individual contributors) on issues that were voiced, such as breakfast in the office or a wellness room

    Cons

    - Lack of inspiring senior leadership that can excite the teams by showing empathy and genuine interest in their work - Communications and feedback style of senior leadership during the monthly meetings were often condescending and demotivating. This affected the employee satisfaction score (net promoter score) as well as creating a culture of anxiety and would be worth asking about in a potential job interview
