Pros

Fun work culture centered around smart people working hard
Strong focus on technology
Many opportunities to design and develop on latest technologies

Cons

On the technology side, Expedia is still struggling with the transition from rapid growth to established company. This transition has been going on for 5+ years and processes and organizations are still not stable. There are constant reorgs. Processes can be overwhelming and political.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Technical processes and procedures need to be streamlined.

    Pros

    Travel market is a very fast paced and exciting place where technology provides infinite opportunities for innovation in customer facing features. Expedia is a key player in this market and its original successes were determined by innovations in both business and technology aspects of the domain space.

    Cons

    Over the years after it was sold by Microsoft Expedia lost the passion for technology that made it successful. Its culture and core values deteriorated to a point where the main thing that remained important was office politics. Expedia lost most of its strong technologists and decisions about organizational and technological directions appeared to be quite random.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know if it is still possible to go back to the core values Expedia had in 1998. This is something I would encourage the leadership at Expedia to take a closer look at.

    Expedia is a remarkable company... but management needs revamping.
