    Pros

    Never got a chance to work here. Was a huge advocate for Expedia and wanted to work there, so I was thrilled when they sourced me and reached out to me. One conversation later, promises made, and I was ignored

    Cons

    Their recruiting team, particularly their current Talent Advisor - Global Talent Acquisition, need to treat people with common decency and respect. I was emailed and sourced directly for a position by this Talent Advisor, rearranged my schedule for the interview and prepared extensively, and was told I was perfect, and that they would follow-up with me within a week to get things moving, and i never heard from her again. I emailed, called, reached out to her on LinkedIn (the way she sourced me) and she never responded. I even asked her to let me know if the position was closed, nothing. She touts herself as a customer oriented, recruiting and skilled talent advisor but is the complete opposite... Totally lost faith in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Your talent advisor of global talent acquisition should be re-trained or fired, or at least put in a pistil where she's not able to work with potential hires. Her bad service and my experience has caused me to tell everyone interested in a position at Expedia to look elsewhere. I have a large network of skilled people I am connected with, due to my position, and one bad egg can cause you to lose a lot of good talent. I'm also told by others who have dealt with her that my experience is not isolated.

    I worked at Expedia (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, travel perks, depending on management/team good people.

    Cons

    To many layers of management. Goals sometimes not attainable due to so much time spent tracking / reporting the actions you are doing just so the managers can track and report what you're doing to managers who do the same up the ladder. Aggressive growth goals that are not sustainable long term.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. If you aren't in operations, the world is your oyster. Development teams are very collaborative and forward thinking. Expedia as a company/brand is very committed to ensuring inclusiveness and opportunity.

    Cons

    Operations seems to be in a "do what I say, not what I do" philosophy. Money and effort appear to be thrown at whatever is "shiny" at the moment, and not on more critical issues that don't have "sex appeal"

    Advice to Management

    Let's untie the hands of the people making the site experience better and reign in the problem children. Let's also have the same rules and expectations apply to everyone in all departments. With respect to the course, I like it, and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before we start acting like a Fortune 500 company.

    It's ok to live on the edge and take a few risks.
