    Pros

    I work with the smartest people I've ever come across in 18 years, and I used to be surrounded by PhDs in a Healthcare company! But the incredibly high brain function and business acumen are balanced with great values and integrity, and most importantly a sense of humour and FUN! It's the first company in 15 years I finally feel that I contribute, be a leader, but still be respected and appreciated for who I am - and I've worked in quite a few Fortune 100 companies. In a nutshell Expedia has done more than tick the following boxes that were key Values & Principles for me:
    -Strong business growth strategy & outlook
    -"Gets" that innovation, creativity, risk-taking & investment are at the heart of competitive edge, acts on it at pace and doesn't dilly-dally on decision-making. JFDI!
    -Deals with poor performers and recognizes the strong ones. A high-performing culture that changes at-pace isn't for everyone.
    -Balances strong business oriented decisions with the human element, not at the cost of it. Decision-making is as inclusive as it can be in a high-pace environment.
    -People are super smart, fun to work with, always happy to help each other out and share best practices.
    -Incredible diversity: race, nationality, background, orientation, religion, experience, all bring a richness of perspective to the decision-making

    Cons

    - There's politics like everywhere else, and if you don't take the time to figure out your stakeholder and how to manage them, you pretty doomed anywhere you go, really... Here you do need high emotional intelligence to figure it out quickly, because things move at lightning pace!!
    - I think people (incorrectly) associate a high-performing driven culture with being "male-dominated". Yes it's a driven & high-performing culture, but there's flexibility here, and as woman I do feel that my colleagues genuinely judge me on my deliverables & contribution, not "face-time" or where I do my work. I chose the global responsibility & exposure and I get that this choice comes with the weird hours. It's definitely about working harder, not smarter. I've admittedly done crazy hours since I joined but I love the work and the people so much it's hard to clock-watch!
    -While there's a strong desire to continuously improve, some of the learnings get lost with it because it does happen such pace... But this is so minor it's almost not worth mentioning...
    -And then there's the Flexible benefits and incredible travel discounts!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We're growing at such a pace that we do risk some of the downsides of a "Corporate" culture. We're not necessarily encountering these yet, but I think we could start watching out for deeper hierarchies than necessary, keep ensuring we push autonomy down to the front line by ensuring they're on the journey through constant messaging on strategic priorities, how decisions are made, and training & education to make balanced decisions fast.
