Pros

It has been exciting to be a part of a growing company that offers a product which crosses over from an individual's worklife to their recreational life. With so many choices at great prices, customers will be back time and time again.

Cons

Unfortunately, without a cost of living raise offered, an individual must always perform above average in order to get any kind of a raise. For a person who is just meeting expectations, they can not keep up with their loss in wage value due to inflation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Two things:
1. Take better care of your customers/vendors. It's much easier to retain them than to gain new ones.
2. Offer at least a cost of living raise so an individual can maintain the value of their wages.

    I worked at Expedia as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pace at Expedia seems decent and they do seem to honor employees and do employee morale events such as cruses on Lake Washington. Does not appear to be a burn out pace and given the fact the business is doing well morale appears decent.

    Cons

    Certain groups particularly GSO are full of former technical managers who have no idea how to manage teams to deal without side vendors or consultants or run projects. Most will write up a contract for a project having no idea what they signed and then leave it to legal to sort out their mistakes. Many of these same managers provide no input to projects, provide no contact/communication with teams and are merely held in position through allegiance with their one higher up superior who does not understand the poor project management they area doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of managers who can not interact with teams, honor the contracts you sign and provide 360 reviews for those above staff. You will rid yourself of those technical managers who have no project management skills and force them to honor contracts.
