Unsupportive, aggressive, volatile, political and bureaucratic.

ProsSome great people.
Opportunities to travel.

ConsA fantastic brand to have on your CV, but that's where it ends.

If you are driven by results, don't expect to change or deliver anything here. Unless the CEO thinks its a good idea it will never happen, one of the major reasons that the companies market share and revenues in Europe are in such rapid decline. Because nobody dares question his 'leadership' the culture is one of blame and suspicion, with senior management constantly looking for  someone to point the finger at.

Expedia is a great stepping stone, but don't be fooled into thinking this will be a long term career move. Its a volatile, high pressure environment with extremely high staff turnover, the resultant is constant course correct and a new 'strategy' every few months. Expect to see a re-structure and senior leadership change every six months or so.

The company invests little to nothing in staff development, and the general attitude towards staff is unsupportive and aggressive. Overall the business is incredibly political and bureaucratic. Leadership are all desperately trying to protect their own small corners of the empire and deflect the CEO's gaze onto someone else, so expect little support. Senior management will happily throw you under a bus if it takes the spot light off them for just a moment.

Advice to Senior ManagementCEO: stop micro managing the entire organisation and let people get on with what they know how to do. Invest in your employees and foster an environment of mutual support and trust. Stop running the business into the floor.
