    Extremely innovative and great atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsThe team atmosphere is great and everyone works together, people just help eachother out all the time. Also there are no internal hierarchies, everyone treats everyone the same way. They are really innovative and try to improve their processes ALL THE TIME. Everyone is really nice and super creative, and you get praised and compensated all the time.

    ConsAs in any big company, I guess the amount of work is sometimes a little bit too much, although you always get rewarded for it one way or another.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing to suggest really, all managers I had were really nice and super flexible.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The culture here is exceptional.

    Senior Director, Global Learning Organisation (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsExpedia take the time to recruit like minded professional people. That means there is a great culture when you start. There is trust that you will deliver and it's the most high performing culture I have been a part of (and I used to work for Apple!) The sentiment of "hire great people and get out of their way" is totally understood. I have freedom to deliver exceptional work here.

    ConsHonestly, I have been here for nearly a year and struggle to honestly find any cons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore opportunities for leadership teams to meet and share & network (not just the women!).

    The best company I have ever worked for

    Test Lead (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsExpedia is the best company I have ever worked for. The best thing that I liked about working there is the amazing work-life balance everyone manages to strike. The work environment is very conducive to creativity and growth. They are really passionate about travel and I just loved that.

    ConsReally cannot think of any cons. But if I simply had to state one then it would be limited growth opportunities in the technology sector.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Smart people, fast paced, great office environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    Pros- good salary
    - great benefits
    - informal but still professional environment
    - easy to share feedback and best practices
    - internal career often encouraged

    Cons- still a bit too "USA-centric" on some high level decisions
    - in some teams career advancement could be a bit slower (although moving to other teams/departments/countries is often encouraged and supported)
    - on some occasions, from high levels there's a high focus on numbers and less focus on headcount

    Advice to Senior Management- try to gain independence from the US for some local decisions
    - continue in properly aligning supply and demand
    - always take into consideration headcount when fixing targets

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Technology Lead (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsLoads of bright people working in technology
    Good work/life balance, fun working environment
    Nice offices
    Some good social events
    Allowed a reasonable level of autonomy and on the whole trusted by senior management in technology

    ConsIt's a big company so not everything changes as fast as you might want, although could be a lot worse
    Could place a greater emphasis on quality and simplicity within technology

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe brave and look to be more disruptive in the industry - encourage creativity and risk taking a little more
