Pros

Expedia's executive team had undergone a series of tumultuous changes, but the head of HR was fantastic. Her leadership ensured that the team managed through those changes effectively.

Cons

In the years since I left, I hope that the tidal waves of change and reorganization have slowed and stabilized.

    Pros

    The engineers and design team I've worked with at Expedia range from excellent to good but my experience with HR has been horrific! They all seem to have extremely low IQ and most of them don't have college education.

    Cons

    Expedia is the only company I know of that hires people consistently with only high school degrees. Being an Engineering hiring manager, I worked closely with recruiters. One of the recruiters told me that the VP of HR said she had work experience as a recruiter and then she asked in a meeting what an ATS was (an ATS is Applicant Tracking System). It's like someone claiming to be a SW Engineer and then asks what Software is!

    Advice to Management

    Steer clear of HR; don't trust them.

    Pros

    Great travel discounts, awesome benefits package and perfect east side location. Expedia is very generous in supporting local non-profits. Can be nimble like a start up.

    Cons

    Reorg after reorg. Management never allows a management style or organization to flush out the kinks, its just easier to reorg. The mantra at Expedia has been "if you don't like your current manager, don't worry, it will change next month."

    Advice to Management

    Trust your current employees, outsiders don't understand the culture.
