    Pros

    The thing I like about Expedia is it looks at each individual's strengths and interests and leverages them rather than trying to fit people into standard roles. The management is very good about distilling business needs into clear simply understood goals and then following through on them

    Cons

    Right now there is a lot of Technological churn. It is a bit of a free for all. Expedia went from too slow to adopt newer technologies to "everything at once".

    Advice to Management

    The movement of the corporate HQ is going to create lots of challenges. You really need to work with Seattle to create better commute options than are available.

    Pros

    Great benefits & good people.

    Cons

    Many things are missing standard operating procedures so you can get a different answer depending on who you speak with - for pretty much everything.

    Pros

    Smart people to work for. Good managers, good leaders and great CEO! Great work-family balance. Smart colleagues. This company knows how to work efficiently and also know how to party.

    Cons

    Location. Traffic is difficult going to Bellevue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the gret work with town halls, with a clear direction, with promoting for the inside. This makes us stronger compared to other companies.
