    I worked at Expedia full-time

    Pros

    The company provides the employee with a good office and benefits. Also, the communication throughout the company is very good.

    Cons

    I found the general social environment to be poor. Though the company creates a lot of events for their employees, which is good, the employees are generally not very open to social talks, etc. I believe this comes down to everyone simply being too busy to care about anything else.

    Advice to Management

    I have a lot of respect for the upper management, but the middle management can very often be a bit tedious and too strict for the "casual" environment they're trying to create.
