Current Employee - Market Manager
Current Employee - Market Manager

I have been working at Expedia full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Multiple offices around the world- transferring to new locations is possible
At the B2B level the company is very transparent- you have access to more resources than you could ever wish for (can also be a con)
Promotion, although a long process, is possible
Benefits are great- decent vacation, lots of travel perks, etc

Cons

Senior leadership and org structure changes seemingly every 3 months making it very difficult to know where you stand
Pay is below average intentionally
Lots of politics and game playing at all levels

Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Creative and amazing people can be found throughout the organization
    A fun atmosphere
    A revamped performance system that allows the stars to really shine

    Cons

    Consistently high level of attrition during first year makes for constant churn and inability to get traction to resolve issues, drive change, or get anyone to take accountability.
    Tribal knowledge equals power so be ready for a lot of corporate politics and reorganizations that have no rhyme or reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the political reorganizations
    Take accountability to fix not band-aid the issues and for goodness sake promote that sometimes its good to have policies and processes.

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are typically nice and try hard to do the right thing in spite of organizational issues. Vacation benefit is great. Travel discounts are nice.

    Cons

    Re-orgmania and attrition, zero operational consistency with every group having their own unique processes and tools, expecutive and senior managers who should never have been hired for that role or promoted and an increasingly strong culture of pushing specific political agendas down the ranks with calls for advocacy from employees (is that even legal)?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You never listen and I highly doubt any executives read these so not going to bother with advice. Advice to individuals thinking of working at Expedia, if you can get a job at another company, probably a good idea for your career, if you can't then wait the economy out then you can work at Expedia but don't expect to learn anything new or grow in any way....think of it as waiting at the doctors office.
