No monetary benefit for sticking around; work/life balance depends upon the group

Product (Current Employee)
Bellevue, WA

I have been working at Expedia full-time for more than 5 years

ProsTravel discounts. Good vacation benefits. Leisure travel reimbursement. OK culture. Casual dress.

ConsThere's no unified policy around working from home and they like to say they promote work/life balance, but when you have a manager that isn't in line with alleged company values there is unfair scrutiny. As a working mother I feel unfairly scrutinized when I need to take my children to the doctor even when there's never been a question of the quality and timeliness of work. I've been told that "people" have noticed that I'm not here on the rare occasions that I need to tend to something during working hours. I'm salary so it's not like I'm skipping out on hours and then claiming them. On other teams I had really great flexibility and that was a strength of the management. I've gone from working from home 1-4 days a week to not at all because you need to keep up appearances for management. You're made to feel untrustworthy and like you're slacking.

I've been here over 5 years and a few years ago HR had a new policy to hire everyone in at the middle of their salary range while leaving everyone that was already here where they were. So I was managing people that were making only $500 less than me a year. If I was to be hired now I would be making $20,000 more a year and that's really difficult to stomach. I continually think about leaving.

Obvious favoritism from management.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe consistent. Trust your employees and don't be a manager if you can't talk directly to your directs. More communication. Don't penalize working parents. Pay all of your employees competitively. Learn what your employees do. I can't respect a manager that doesn't understand my job or the business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Lots of Re-Organizations and Turnover

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bellevue, WA

I worked at Expedia full-time for more than a year


Pros: Vacation benefits, medical, relaxed environment. The employees are friendly… Cons: From my experience it can be difficult to work for Expedia and not feel like a guest rather than an employee. Turnover seems to… Advice to Senior Management: Compensate employees fairly so they do not turnover so often. Also, limit re-organizations which causes attrition. Some managers… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
