    Overall positive. Good people, but not always the most focused or cooperative between groups.

    Pros

    Good leadership that cares about the employees. Not all groups have that but I do. Solid benefits, including travel reimbursement. They will provide just about any office related supply to keep team happy.

    Cons

    Lack of ownership and cooperation between organizations. They do not actively weed out poor performers. Some groups are more worried about process than getting things done right for the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve ownership throughout the organization.

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Expedia is a growing high tech company. I have found the workplace to be very friendly and team oriented. Expedia is also very civic minded, taking part in charities and toy drives.

    Cons

    Like many large corporations, Expedia can sometimes take a long time to make decisions. If you are a telesales agent, it is extremely strict. Every second of your day is measured! If you cannot handle this, it would not be the ideal job for you.

    Pros

    Great team work and co-workers make you feel like you are a part of a great work family. Great work/ life balance. Professional Growth, Training, Company Culture, Motivating, and the company is invested in their Employees.

    Cons

    Not really any significant cons. They have very aggressive goals to be met each year but their motivation and investment in employees does the magical push to help the goals be met.

    Pros

    --Leadership is amazing and really cares about everyone
    --IT Support team is extremely efficient
    --Pay is great
    --Benefits are great
    --Very relaxed environment, clothing, etc.

    Cons

    I'm going to be picky here.
    --The parking garage is always overflowing.
    --Cubical space diminishes month by month by month. Lost of people sit extremely close to each other. (We NEED a larger building)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get us a bigger building. Stop reducing personal workspace to a mere nothing. I myself have yet to experience the crunch, but I see other floors every day with people sitting almost on top of each other.

    Pros

    Decent base pay with the opportunity to make a generous amount of commission when in tuned with the companies "process". Excellent benefits and perks come with this travel company. If you have a decent relationship with the management, your able to move into other departments in the company. Great company that people should want to be apart of, but leadership is in need of refocusing their purpose in the company.

    Cons

    Mid level management. Some supervisors not being technically proficient in all facets of what their position requires. Some supervisors excellent at coordinating games and taking longer lunch breaks because their entitled to while the work horse supervisors go the extra mile carrying the load of others. Directives are passed mainly through email along with minimal training or meetings to know the status of performance or company. Bottom line transparency is an issue.

    I worked at Expedia as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance good. Great pay for intern but below average pay for full time. Smart people. Lot of cool experiences for interns.

    Cons

    Not so great tech. Outdated. And Managers can be indifferent. Having Expedia in my resume didn't attract much companies, after internship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider good talent, and pay them well. Below average pay for Top 10 college grad won't attract cool talent. For Intern if you can pay well, they why the frugality for Full timers?
