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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Expedia

    Pros

    I really enjoy working for Expedia. I feel the leadership is fair, clear and helpful. We are navigating through difficult times and there is no guidebook on how to handle staff reductions and major changes to work environements. All things considered I am pleased with the way change is managed.

    Cons

    There is very little work life balance. You are really working and needing to be accountable 24-7. Good news is most of us love what we do so that is not a problem. Expedia tends to have highly capable type A personalities so there is a lot of competition but enough interesting work to go around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your teams. Over communicated. Be accessible.
