I worked at Expedia full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Scale is great, opportunities are great and with some recent changes even better. There are some tough problems to solve and I'd argue the titanic is shifting direction.

Cons

Still haven't shaken the whole Microsoft way of doing things - it's getting better. Think waterfall with some pockets of Agile/adaptive methodologies all the way from planning to delivery with monster release nights

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change is good - embrace it!

    Current Employee - Director in Bellevue, WA

    I have been working at Expedia full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - International relocation opportunities
    - Great career development opportunities
    - Employees are empowered to make decisions at all levels
    - The start-up mindset is growing stronger every day in product and technology

    Cons

    - Not enough of 'the good guys' to go around to manage all the parts of the organization that need it
    - Slow adoption of nimble start-up mindset in other parts of the company
    - Still a few remnants of times gone by hanging around trying to halt progress

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accelerate the way management of the successful bits of the company filters out to the rest of the company! Don't be afraid to shake things up with a successful formula.

    Pros

    It has not always been easy, but I have learned so much.
    Upper Mgt really cares about how thier decisons impact the Brand and the Employees.

    Expedia offers a great benefit package.

    Cons

    Expedia is a big company with employees world wide. Being spread out can cause timing and communication issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Thank you for keeping our great health care benefits.
