    Good opportunity, but not the friendliest work environment.

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

    Pros

    You get your own cubicle as a contract worker, which is not always the case at other organization. The organization is very efficient and well-structured. Free drinks in each break room and free pizza lunch for all on the last Friday of the month. Decent pay for a lower level contract position. Worldwide reach, so there is a lot of interaction with other countries.

    Cons

    My team was not very friendly 5 out of 9 on the team were contract workers. Contract workers are not allowed to attend many company functions, which makes you feel a little excluded. Very strict about hours and monitor your time down to the minutes - or so it seems. You have to be out of your contracted position at Expedia for 3 months before you can apply for a permanent position within the organization, unless they decide to buy you out of your contract and make you permanent in the position you are already in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your contract workers feel more comfortable and more a part of the team.

    Current Employee - Destination Manager in Belleve, OH

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

    Pros

    Passionate about travel and technology, many opportunities to dive into different areas of eCommerce and the travel industry, travel benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    Competition in the travel space is incredibly strong so an entrepreneurship mindset is critical. For those that do not have the drive to build the business and look for opportunities to scale, this is probably not the right company for you.
