    Current Employee - Senior Talent Advisor in Bellevue, WA

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. Location is nice. Good food nearby. Place is usually clean. Nice views.

    Cons

    Lack of career growth. As a Talent Advisor we purposely are told to bring people in way under market. Management is not trained well. No on-boarding at all. Manipulation between teams. Bad Sr Leadership. Over worked. Expected to work 55+ hour weeks. After 90 days I realized that this was not the right place for me and am now leaving. It is a very bad company all around. Look at Hotwire for example...there career sight is from 2007 pictures. Oh, and no RSU's are usually given at all for sign up. Last...6 people have left Talent Acquisitions in the past 2 months...this says a lot about a company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at Sr Leaders that are being put into place. If you go through the TA org, you will notice that 6 people have left Expedia Inc from TA in the last few months. There are many reasons for that. You have 2 directors to 2 sr managers. Too many leaders while recruiters are required to work 60 hour days and have to basically get on anxiety medication as their leaders yell at them. There are better places and I started looking a while ago.

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great laid back work atmosphere. Free sodas, lots of morale events, free beer, coffee, espresso, etc. Also the people who work here are fantastic. Benefits are also excellent and overall a really fun place to work. Great work life balance!

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to move up in the company. HR tends to favor external candidates over internal. Compensation is low for performance with a stellar annual review. Don't expect a promotion even after proving your value. Once you feel settled in your position and you're hungry for more, you might be up against a brick wall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employees to have more ownership and productivity and bright ideas will flourish. Also, promote within or you may lose valuable talent.
