Sometimes planning is the most crucial part of creating a project and sometimes they have big visions about projects but lack of planning which leads to a lot of frustration and confusion.

This was one of the best company i ever worked for. They always made sure that we felt the love. They also provide the opportunity to promote from within. If it was for me having to come back to my home town i would definitely still be here.

Are you a young engineer? Then this company might be good for you. Otherwise, run.

This company has quite a bipolar culture, and thinks erroneously that this is what being agile looks like. It clearly is a company that has grown too fast, giving too much power to its engineers, while not scaling up fast enough. The end result is a company that operates in a completely disorganized fashion, with frustrating inner competition for resources, without proper coordination, and with a balance of power that is tilted towards a few groups only.


So, if you are a young engineer who wants to sink their teeth into some interesting work, or even a young product manager who wants to learn the ropes, then you might find this company even appealing for a few years. If you are a professional in any other specialty and want to continue to use your skills and grow professionally, then run away as fast as you can.

The travel industry is an interesting domain w/ lots and lots of sub-areas to dive into. Over the past couple of years, more and more of the work is becoming part of the overall Expedia organization.

You will enjoy working at VRBO when in isolation, but when Expedia, it's parent company, starts interjecting you start to notice bad decision making show up.

The company was still in its first 10 years of being open and they were excelling every goal that they set for themselves and always made sure that their customer and employees were well taken care of.

I love working under VRBO. Their project is really fun to build and learn. Good place to strive, good mentors, and great life balance. VRBO focuses on client's satisfaction.

The reorganization and rebranding of the company left many people out in the cold to try and find a place within the company on their own. Like many people, I felt it was a strategic move to eliminate some people from marketing and other departments that mysteriously went on a hiring freeze during the time of "finding a new spot" This will happen every year with growth as finance moves through each part of the business.

They overwork you and expect you to give your all when they are always finding faults when you do your 1x1 with them which is why they have a very high turnover rate.

Wonderful culture and employee perks. Great locations in Austin always near easy lunch spots. Long vacation times and desk away programs. Friendly staff. Downfall was work life balance. Disorganized causing unnecessary time spent.

Une journee qui commence par une reunion avec le management, pour essayer les problemes de la semaine passee.

puis mon travai commence par le checking de de ma boite mail.

Voir si il ya des problemes urgents a resoudre avec les clients.

puis des coups de tephones ou emails aux clients (Comptes)e

Puis se focaliser sur la retention et l'acquisition.

le coaching de l'equipe,


L'aspect difficile s'est de resoudre un litige entre proprietaire et le clients....


l'aspect agreable s'est l'environment international ou tous le monde a le sourire a la fin de la journee et que tout le monde pousse pour un meilleur chiffred d'affaire....
Pros
Tickets repas
Cons
pas de cotisation epargne retraite

You may get lucky and get good leadership, you may not.
It’s a very political work environment once you get pass the entry level positions.


Apparently it was a better place before I worked there.
Pros
Free drinks and snacks
Cons
Politics

Joining the HomeAway team has been one of the best decisions I've made since moving to Austin. Prior to working here, I had already been reaped of the benefits of working for this company and how it has opened many doors for those looking for a future with a vastly growing industry. Since working here I have gained knowledge of the vacation rental industry that has greatly benefited on my outside life as well. I highly recommend joining this company if you have the passions to work in an environment that feels like home.

HomeAway provided a number of resources to advance your personal career knowledge but certain departments had quicker turnaround on projects than others. Merging with Expedia caused some things to change at HomeAway including the focus of the business and streamlining of processes. I overall enjoyed my time at HomeAway but wished there were more efficient ways of working across departments there.
Pros
Great Benefits.
Cons
Lack of C Suite Support

HomeAway is pretty good to work for the real thing that makes it worth it is the benefits, the time off, the co-workers and the events paid for HomeAway. Other then that it is a fairly decent job there were some great managers my manager was not that great however was very rarely there. After about 6 months at HomeAway I just felt like a worker instead of a person they have a lot of confusing processes that constantly changed which made it hard to understand what was going on.
Pros
free lunches, benefits, Pto
Cons
hours, career advancment
