    Pros

    The management team take great care of us to ensure we have the necessary experience with our products to sell them to guests. My supervisor is very flexible to work with my requests for switching days, as long as I provide a few weeks notice, which suits me fine. I get a great sense of job satisfaction when I make a guest's day better.

    Cons

    There can be confusing communication, where a manager seems to contradict themselves within a few days of laying out what's expected. Often my team are scheduled an 11pm end-of-day followed by a 6:45am start the following day, which can leave you feeling fatigued and unable to perform your best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More face-time with team members would be appreciated, although communication through email happens very often. Most of the issues we face are on the partner's side (hotels specifically), not Expedia's side.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits, generally good culture depending on the team you are with.

    Cons

    Lots of re-orgs. Company has a tendency to change leadership often and break up and build new teams. This causes unnecessary churn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more sensitive to the needs of your leaders and staff.

    Pros

    Smart, fun colleagues, work/life balance, push for excellence, great benefits, fun culture, growth opportunities

    Cons

    Processes need to be streamlined, need a stronger push for innovation, better telework policies, open workspace makes it hard to focus/get work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of really motivated, talented people on your team, but disjointed processes and legacy systems prevent us from doing our best work. Remove these blockers and we'll be able to do really innovative work.

    Pros

    Great benefits and work-life balance!
    Fast-paced environment and there's a lot to learn.

    Cons

    No training budget.
    Mid to upper level managers are not qualified to do their jobs and often expect their staff to do what they should be doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop and train managers and hold them accountable for their actions.
