    I have been working at Vrbo full-time

    Pros

    I'm new here (6 months), but I'm loving the place. Good sense of technology, fun place to work, and doing interesting things.

    Cons

    Management isn't very top-down directive - which is generally good, but some stuff does seem a bit undirected.

    I worked at Vrbo full-time

    Pros

    Friendly people, great benefits. Great working in travel for a highly profitable company.

    Cons

    I can only speak about my experience working on the marketing team. I don't know if this is true in other departments. I visited the other offices before and they did seem more diverse. I worked at the downtown location which was where the marketing organization was housed. I was always one of the only nonwhite people. This wasn't a big deal usually since everyone was really friendly. But the longer I was there the more it seemed as if everyone in leadership roles was predominantly from similar backgrounds (white, Texan, cis, married with kids or looking to be, often people who did sports or participated in Greek life in college. To their credit they did have some LGB leadership while I was there). And in fact so many of the team members in general were like that. It didn't seem like I had a future there and most of the great opportunities were indeed going to my white coworkers. I know that people who had been there less time than I was and worked less than I did were being paid more than me. I became very tired of being the only non white person in 99.9% of meetings. I am much happier now after leaving for a more diverse workplace. My salary also increased substantially as soon as I left and I have been given several merit raises and promotions in a short time which made my Vrbo raises look like a joke. I spoke to one of my Black female colleagues after leaving and she had the exact same experience. I haven't asked other non white former coworkers about their experience because frankly there aren't many to ask.

    Current Employee - Market Development Manager in London, England

    I have been working at Vrbo full-time

    Pros

    It is a dynamic company looking to renovate and simplify. The management is well prepared and treats well.

    Cons

    Internal processes are often slow as it is part of a big group which doesn't make it agile.
