HR Leadership Appalling

  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Former Employee - Human Resources/Recruiting Personnel in Bellevue, WA
Former Employee - Human Resources/Recruiting Personnel in Bellevue, WA

I worked at Expedia full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good perks and benefits, you get some good travel deals and the benefits are good compared to other large area competitors.

Cons

The leadership in HR is severely lacking, it is completely disorganized and led by an ego maniac. The pay structure there is less than competitive and they just don't seem to get it. The annual bonus is a joke, no one ever gets what is promised even if you are a top performer on the team. The only way to progress is to play a dangerous political game and you had better have eyes in the back of your head.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen more to your employees, provide them with more clarity and consistency around policies, salary and annual bonus.

    Pros

    - great people; smart, young with high energy
    - good career growth opportunities
    - values star performers

    Cons

    - too much process for a web based tech company
    - compensation not up to market levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please compensate employees well. I have been with Expedia for 10 years and I know I can get 20-30K more if I move, but still like to work for Expedia for other reasons like travel benefits, people, growth opportunities etc

    A decent company to work for

    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Bellevue, WA

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

    Pros

    Biggest pluses are work-life balance, and getting to know the travel business. The investments in SOA are really starting to pay off, and the stock price has reflected the growing strength of the business.

    Cons

    They aim for 50% percentile of compensation in the industry, so you generally will not see an strong offer when hired. The company is for the most part not on the cutting edge of technology. The investments in engineering are mostly just to get to a modern SOA architecture, and I don't see any attempt to leapfrog in the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a cue from Amazon and focus much more on customer experience, and let this drive the way forward.
