I have been working at Expedia full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Expedia. I believe they hire some of the brightest and sharpest people in the industry. Good work life balance.

Cons

Sometimes we have too many hurdles for the simplest decisions. Several project take place at the same time, and priorities get conflicted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company is trying hard to stay nimble, but we need to find ways to retain a 'startup frame of mind' after several years of operations. I hope to see Expedia remain the leader in this Industry. Overall, Great Job!!

    Incompetent lower level managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have picked up so much baggage from leadership turnover and in-fighting that long-term success is unlikely given the current trajectory. Bring in an external party to plan your next re-organization and evaluate your leadership, processes and procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow women to become leaders, not always to be worker-bees. Do not punish women for going on maternity leave.

    I was asked to take a different role before I left on maternity leave, but declined the opportunity because I wanted to continue to grow the business I was managing. 2 days before I was to come back from maternity leave, I was told that I would be taking on the role I declined prior to my leave. I felt like senior management used my leave as an opportunity to place me in a position I didn't want to be in. The new role was at the same level as my previous role, so they were technically not doing anything illegal.

    I will now be weary the next time I choose to have a baby because of the repercussions it could have on my career. Fortunately for men, they don't have to go through this.
