    Pros

    The thing I like about Expedia is it looks at each individual's strengths and interests and leverages them rather than trying to fit people into standard roles. The management is very good about distilling business needs into clear simply understood goals and then following through on them

    Cons

    Right now there is a lot of Technological churn. It is a bit of a free for all. Expedia went from too slow to adopt newer technologies to "everything at once".

    Advice to Management

    The movement of the corporate HQ is going to create lots of challenges. You really need to work with Seattle to create better commute options than are available.

    Pros

    Great benefits & good people.

    Cons

    Many things are missing standard operating procedures so you can get a different answer depending on who you speak with - for pretty much everything.

    Pros

    Fun company with fantastic vacation and travel benefits. Decent 401k matching and good health benefits.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to move from one team to another. People managers don't always have much training and can really ruin a team. Doesn't seem to be much oversight on this.

    Advice to Management

    Better people management training for all in supervisory roles is needed. More visibility into gender pay inequality very much needed.

    Pros

    Smart people to work for. Good managers, good leaders and great CEO! Great work-family balance. Smart colleagues. This company knows how to work efficiently and also know how to party.

    Cons

    Location. Traffic is difficult going to Bellevue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the gret work with town halls, with a clear direction, with promoting for the inside. This makes us stronger compared to other companies.

    Pros

    Lots of new technology development, plenty to learn, benefits are at par with market standards, great work/life balance. The longer I work here, the more I like this company and its technology direction.

    Cons

    Some teams have horrible sr. leadership which can restrict growth. They promote excessive favoritism, no mentoring, politics & plenty of back biting. All the best if you fall with one of those teams.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to take consider the feedback given on bad managers. People leave managers, not companies and some of the recent attrition in some teams has primarily been around horrible managers.
