Pros

You can expect to learn good processes in a structured environment. Employee benefits are very competitive

Cons

It's not always easy to get something done in such a big organization, you have to be ready to navigate trough the company different horizontal and vertical structural layers.

Advice to Management

Keep it simple ! It would be more useful to cut in the management structure rather than cutting functionalities. In the past two years, all management accomplishments are related to budget cuts. The structure is so complex that even upper management takes important decisions without talking to the right persons.

    Pros

    Amazingly smart people with a passion for travel working to create a fantastic customer experience. A continuing zeal to solve hard problems and do the right thing.

    Cons

    Lack of experience dealing with the tough times is causing management to stumble when dealing with downsizing, reorgs, and general morale issues.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy and stick with it. Change the tactics but try not to keep jumping from one strategy to another. The constant re-planning in ETG is causing morale problems, wasted effort (i.e. costs), and lack of output. Think about small and frequent improvements and don't wait for the perfect solution. Stick with it and you will make it through this year.

    Pros

    For a fresh graduate just out of school looking for a Software Engineer role, Expedia will be a good experience in understanding the architecture of a large web system. The software Development team is very smart and most of the seniors are former microsoft employees. The culture is very laid back.

    Cons

    Lot of reorgs and the middle management lacks direction

    Advice to Management

    Please stop reorgs and strive towards a flat organization atleast for the Development.
