    I worked at Expedia Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Mostly good team (you're never going to get everyone good) Good benefits, can help you travel the world in or out of career Nice office space Regular updates from higher management Great work life balance

    Cons

    Good management structure in place but lots of not so good managers Role can be quite autonomous Have to suck up to management to get anywhere, rather than be recognized for your good. It's a "prove your worth it" everyday company, rather than one which values its staff Targets not set accurately just a number in machine so dont count on bonus Also in NZ hotels hate the company (not company fault) so you have... to deal with what you would think are business clients talking to you in disgusting manner

    Pros

    Expedia supports its employees. That speaks volumes to the culture. Still seen as the leader in travel, but a competitor has grabbed huge market share internationally. Very good people--smart, professional, and effective. Good prospects for the company's future, although the rate of change in the industry is rapid.

    Cons

    Some departments are drowning in processes. Too many support departments are disconnected from ownership of their cases, and focus only on closing as many cases as possible. Business model is overly complex and while well-executed, has been lapped by a certain nimbler rival.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a great job of taking care of employees. Next, focus on the product, the users, and the suppliers... reputation on all fronts is sadly not what it could be! Less obvious ads on the sites, more ease of use. It's not bad but it could be better.

    Former Employee - Database Developer in Bellevue, WA

    I worked at Expedia Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    good benefits, they had a good health plan, and offer good benefits for paternity/maternity and paid parking. lots of company sponsored lunches, events. Good communication from executive team, ample of townhalls and email communication. awesome holiday party and halloween celebrations.

    Cons

    upward mobility is difficult, if you do not mix around with the right folks and get along with them. a lot of secrecy in decision making, even in simple things like approach to a project. seems like they want people to just agree and do what is told, without understanding anything :( . middle management is only concerned about keeping up their appearances with upper management, and will sabotage any efforts by the... team members to shine. depending on the team, work life balance can be impossible , but not all teams are like that.
