Pros

The travel benefits are great. Generally the people are very nice and smart.

Cons

The recruiting organization continues to lack amy real direction and has for years. Their investment in new recruiting technology or marketing is pitiful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your recruiting team the tools they need to find the talent you want.

    Pros

    I waited nearly a full year to write this review to make sure I could provide feedback without rose colored glasses.

    In gernal, I love working at Expedia. Expedia has a good work life balance. Most individual contributors on the tech side work around nine to ten hours a day. On average the work force is younger, friendly, and intelligent. It is rare to find a team that isn't open to new suggestions or unwilling to try and find creative solutions. It is also possible to work from home occassionally if needed.

    The travel discounts for full time employees are great. If you love travel and technology, the tech side of Expedia is a great fit. If you don't want to travel, you'll miss out on some of the best perks.

    Cons

    Like any company, there are those teams which are the exception to the rule. My advise to potential candidates is to ask how many weekends the team works on average each month. Most teams don't work any weekends, and the teams with severe issues freqently work long hours and weekends. The pay scale is not as high as Amazon, and slighly behind Microsoft.

    There is also the odd manager who puts himself ahead of the team, but movement between teams is fairly straight forward.

    Pros

    Great work life balance and work culture. Company offers travel benefits incl. IATA membership.

    Cons

    Company is not agile as it used to be. Core product still includes a lot of legacy code.
