    Egencia, part of Expedia, is a technology company, not a travel company.

    Manager (Former Employee) Bellevue, WA

    ProsGood benefits, compensation fair if you've been acquired, but much better if you're coming into the company new.

    ConsTough corporate culture. Everyone's climbing over each other to get to the next rung on the ladder

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to work people out and utilize the talents that you have

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work with the friendliest bunch of incompetent backstabbers

    Prefer Not to Answer (Current Employee) Bellevue, WA

    ProsThere's good travel benefits (hotels only - not car rentals or airline tickets).

    Unfortunately, there's really no more plus side than that.

    Cons- You won't get paid much - in fact, they will exploit you. And no, the travel deals don't make up for it. The other benefits just get worse over the years.
    - They seem friendly, but in reality they will play a whole lot of highschool games because they are bored and not actually doing their jobs.
    - You will hate working in a super crowded environment. Everyone is piled on top of each other. There's no longer a common area where people can relax. They went from open cubes to an open office the other year. It's like a rat's nest.
    - Perception matters a lot more than reality. If you just show up to a big meeting, that counts far and above you getting any real work done.
    - Leadership is fake and has been poisoned by people coming in from Microsoft. They are horrible backstabbers who do not add any value. They have terrible values. They exploit hard working employees and then lay them off. Politics and butt-kissing means everything to them.
    - Leadership is always "rah-rah-ing" and never follows up with real, significant changes. They will tell you something will change for the better, then never implement it.
    - Most misogynist and backwards company I have ever worked for. If you are a woman, you will NOT rise up in the company. You have NO chance. Better to just cut your losses and leave.
    - Acts like a startup. Shoots from the hip instead of having any processes.

    Advice to Senior Management- Get rid of all former Microsoftees. They are absolute poison.
    - Stop pressuring employees to vote for Egencia and Expedia as the BEST COMPANY TO WORK FOR. It's not. That must be earned, not beaten into employees in a fascist way.
    - Do what you say. Stop with the two-facedness.
    - Stop treating your money like it's Monopoly money.
    - Stop acting like this is a startup. The organization is 11 years old and has zero processes. It's one of the most inefficient places I've ever worked.
    - Just because you were first in the travel technology game, doesn't mean you'll be the last to survive. Expedia and Egencia are riding on a very old horse. Instead of innovating, they rest on their laurels. The competition is better than you and is catching up.
    - Support women - the turnover rate with women is high because they know they have nowhere to go.

    Expedia is Ok to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bellevue, WA

    Prosemployees are friendly. fairly laid back working environment

    Constoo much management involvement with teams to get their jobs done. Executive leadership is too inexperienced and immature to be leading a company.

    Advice to Senior Managementbring in more experienced leadership and leaders who are not self centered
