    Pros

    While I'm sure it differs from team to team, the one I'm involved with is wonderful! Everyone is really there to help each other out, but also push each other to do the best work possible. The atmosphere is positive, energetic and innovative.

    Cons

    There is constant change in the travel industry, which means constant change trying to keep up with new processes, rules, etc. This can be a little overwhelming for a new-hire, but you get used to going with the flow as you become more familiar with your position and the tools you work with.

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

    Pros

    Company cares for its employees and while individual groups or teams can be somewhat chaotic, the company as a whole is making forward progress in technology, both with new technology stacks and updating existing stacks as well as finally contributing back to the open source community. Benefits are excellent and compensation, while not necessarily always top notch, is at least competitive.

    Cons

    Depends on the team/group, of course, but it's often chaotic. If you can keep up, most people will do fine. Too much bureaucracy in front of technology actions and choices makes change sloooow or not happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back stock (RSUs or options) for compensation. Think through re-orgs before starting actually moving people around and don't forget to take knock on randomization such as communication DLs and documentation into effect.
