    Pros

    Great casual office work environment, lots of opportunity to get development, lots of autonomy in the role as long as you are performing well.

    Cons

    The salary isn't extremely competitive with other industries, and the goals set for bonuses are quite high and nearly impossible to fully attain.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of properly cascading details and goals, instead they micromanage individuals too much. Teams should be managed top down through appropriate managers.

    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.

    Pros

    I worked with incredibly smart people doing exciting work. Expedia continues to innovate in ecommerce, social media and travel.

    Cons

    My position involved lots of business travel. Business travel is fun when you are childless, but it was harder once I had children. My boss was supportive and great though, and I have no complaints.

    Pros

    Great company, fun, work hard/play hard culture. Work life balance is great. Senior management is approachable from the CEO, Dara, on down the ranks. Best place I have worked.

    Cons

    There are no cons I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Willing to hire entry level people - Bachelors degree not necessarily required
    Able to learn many tools, including SQL
    Teaches you how to organize Outlook inboxes - experience dealing with hundreds of emails per day
    Depending on the shift, its pretty relaxed - dress casual

    Cons

    Slow promotions
    Not great upwards mobility opportunities unless you have some certs or know someone or have experience in something else
    They definitely have their favorites - favorites will get on special projects
    Slow changes to the group

    Advice to Management

    I would advise them to change the PM shift to an earlier shift, offer the same opportunities to those who are more senior, stop rewarding brown-nosers. It's a brutal, manual, monotonous job - give analysts a break on stats - especially those on the night team.
