    Avantages

    A few cool people will keep you going but thats about it.

    Inconvénients

    LR/Airbnb is a complete leftwing company who plays a massive role in identity politics. If you are a straight white male, you better not dare express a different opinion than everyone else because you will be immediately alienated. When there is an issue, the manager has complete control over you and HR stays out of the process. If your manager doesnt like you, your done for and most of them are generally unhappy. People will try to take advantage of you and your manager will also take credit for your work. For performance reviews, I was told by my manager that my peer comments dont matter and only what he wrote should be should be taken into consideration (Extremely authoritarian managers & e-staff is completely non existant when it comes to interacting with the regular employees). Its sad to see what airbnb has turned LR into - please do not work here unless you are a leftist who enjoys identity politics - what a shame Joe, you completely let me down for allowing them to do what they did to me.

    Avantages

    I worked there in the product engineering department a few years ago.
    Great set of innovative products to always work on at the time. There was always something to learn so don’t worry about getting bored. Team collaboration is amazing, you always feel the sense of commit from your colleagues. Great benefits couldn’t ask for anything more.

    Inconvénients

    There were extremely tight deadlines some more unrealistic than it should have been. Management didn’t know how to set limits to ensure that the people developing would never reach to a point of saying “I had enough”.

    Avantages

    Casual dress code, looks good on your resume.

    Inconvénients

    No communication, ridiculous expectations and workload, low compensation and they will take every advantage of changing your schedule, high turn over rate.

    Conseils à la direction

    Advice to management: How about treat your employees like actual people and not robots; be honest with your employees about what their work schedules will be from the beginning; start paying your employees a decent wage...I could go on, but since when has management listened to lower -level employees?

    Advice to prospective employees: This company is an absolute mess. Things change very quickly, which is all well and good, but generally the person who most needs to know about a new development is the very last to know. They will ask you to do two jobs at once. No, literally. They will tell you that you are to simultaneously perform the tasks of two unrelated jobs and not offer you any extra compensation, and if you can't meet their ridiculous expectations then the problem is all on you, of course. Oh and if they tell you that your schedule will always or mostly be Monday - Friday, 9 - 5, take this with a huuuuge grain of salt.

    Advice to current employees: Document everything and stop taking crap from those above you.

    Je travaille chez Luxury Retreats à plein temps (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Having 21 years of professional experience spanning 6 industries and as many companies in the Fortune 500, I find myself well positioned to have a solid benchmark against which to review Luxury Retreats. I can say without any reservation, that Luxury Retreats provides an outstanding working environment. I am part of a company that can be defined as youthful and energetic yet guided by the wisdom of a leadership team with a proven track record for sustained growth. Having recently joined the AirBnB family, Luxury Retreats has embarked on a new path to become a juggernaut in the luxury hospitality rental market.

    At Luxury Retreats, we are given numerous opportunities to grow the business in a meaningful way. If your objective is to make a difference and build a solid career with tangible work experience, Luxury Retreats will provide those opportunities in spades. Simply put, this is not a large corporation whose mandate is to keep the ship sailing in calm seas. Luxury Retreats is a highly dynamic and entrepreneurial company exclusively emerged in ecommerce.

    With regards to benefits, it is simply unbelievable. Great bonus, vacations, on-site bistro with a bona fide professional chef, gym, professional development, and state of the art hardware and software and much more.

    Inconvénients

    None that are worth mentioning.

    Conseils à la direction

    A lot of hard work and leadership built Luxury Retreats from an idea to an amazing company. My advice to Joe Poulin and the leadership team is simple, let's build upon the wealth of knowledge and resources our colleagues at AirBnB have offered us. Things can only grow to amazing heights.

    Avantages

    I actually don't mind going to work in the morning, I actually don't dread Mondays (yes, these jobs exist!) Actually I'm kind of excited to work on my projects, and that's why I've stayed. Throughout my time here I've seen a lot of progress and can truly say I'm happy here. I was great opportunities to develop my career. I have a manager who recognizes my work and gives opportunities to develop my skills and learn from others. I like the fact that the company is medium sized and hits that nice balance where you're not micro-managed and dont have to go through too much bureaucracy to get your ideas in action. Also very happy with the boost in baseline vacation and the fact that we can now depend on yearly salary reviews. Those are the kinds of things that make an impact. As for the atmosphere, this is something you don't find everywhere - really nice, feel very comfortable in the office which has really high ceilings and big windows, enjoy the healthy meals and snacks at the cafe, use the shuttle every day, very convenient, don't use the gym but a lot of people do. Love my coworkers, feels like home.

    Inconvénients

    I would agree with previous reviewers about there having been growing pains, and this was mostly due to needing more leadership roles filled. But sticking around during those times paid off, because this company is going places and it's exciting to see us continue to position ourselves even better to dominate this sector of the industry.There have been some strong additions to the leadership team lately, and I've already seen their guidance have a positive impact on overall organization and satisfaction - this has made ALL THE DIFFERENCE. Based on the continual positive direction we're headed and the way we're growing I would recommend the company to anyone considering working here.

    Conseils à la direction

    Empower employees by having a clearly communicated plan and expectations, they may even surprise you. We want to know not only where the company is going but where we’re going as individuals in our own careers. No such thing as over communication, value it and take concrete steps to promote it. Trust your employees' expertise, challenge them and reward them in ways that count.

    Avantages

    Fantastic office, lots of opportunity, amazing product, a growing industry and great people! Luxury Retreats continues to expand in Montreal and around the world. It's a well funded company that rewards it's employees.

    Inconvénients

    There are some growing pains and it's not a company for those that prefer a slow paced environment. Some people complain about too many changes but what they don't realize is those changes are what help Luxury Retreats separate from the competition.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to invest in the people and never forget who we are. A hard working, fun team that is not too corporate!
