    Pros

    I've joined Booking.com as a full time employee and since then I learned a lot of things about booking that made me agree to the fact that this is one of the best employer in Europe. Some of these good things are given below 1. Processes: Everything has it's well defined and well maintained process. 2. Transparency: The company is very much transparent about it's leadership ideas, goals, ethics, policies, etc. 3. Great pay: One of highest payer in Europe. 4. Good work: The internal libraries, infrastructure, documentation, pipelines, etc are really great and you enjoy working here on these things. 5. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Good salary, smart colleagues, interesting projects, bad top-down product direction

    Pros

    Compensation package was improving throughout the years and now is rather competitive. Lots of smart people it's a real pleasure to work with. Lots of projects to choose from, easy to migrate between the teams and work on something appealing. Constantly evolving technological stack. Current CEO is amazing.

    Cons

    Some legacy parts are evolving slowly or not at all, lots of forgotten products nobody wants to care for. Product decisions are made top-down which means teams can appear or be disbanded overnight - nobody is fired, but the focus is lost for months. Generally everything is moving very slowly. Tech leadership is not amazing.

    Nice company for expats

    Pros

    Company offers top salary with a generous benefit package and also complete relocation scheme to start living in expensive Amsterdam/London. Management is always open to critics for better culture, and constructive feedback to improve products. Equal opportunities to everyone, diversity and inclusion is in its best.

    Cons

    Different voices can be heard but mostly discarded without proper reason and justification. Chances of promotion is slightly more possible than successfully launching a DIY rocket to space.

    Pros

    Big community of engineers and data people to learn from. Comparable compensations and benefits with other tech companies.

    Cons

    If you are women in tech, very hard to get any promotion. 90% of the decision makers, senior people and managers are men.
