    Smart people, fast paced, great office environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    Pros- good salary
    - great benefits
    - informal but still professional environment
    - easy to share feedback and best practices
    - internal career often encouraged

    Cons- still a bit too "USA-centric" on some high level decisions
    - in some teams career advancement could be a bit slower (although moving to other teams/departments/countries is often encouraged and supported)
    - on some occasions, from high levels there's a high focus on numbers and less focus on headcount

    Advice to Senior Management- try to gain independence from the US for some local decisions
    - continue in properly aligning supply and demand
    - always take into consideration headcount when fixing targets

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frustrating, worthless.

    Front-End Developer (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsInternational way of working, very big company. I had the opportunity to work with people across the world in a interesting project. Unluckily mobody in the decision-making wanted to move forward in any sense so everything was just more and more frustrating.

    ConsImpossible to do almost anything, more bosses than developers making incredible meetings to decide the most tiny things. Totally wasted.
    No interest at all in innovation.
    Management doesn't have a clue about technological advances, nor they want to do, as they are only worried about "staying the same".

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus in doing "something" instead of "staying like we are". The world runs 1,000 times faster.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor support for employees in times of crisis

    Marketing (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsExpedia is a great company to work for when everything is going smoothly.

    Good projects, interesting people on the whole and a good work life balance.

    ConsWidespread management changed over the last 6 months have completely destroyed the culture of the company.

    It is now a very difficult place to work with people getting fired and being treated poorly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart valuing your employees again.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ever-evolving place

    (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat work-life balance.
    Trust in executive leadership team.
    Very cool London office. Good social environment.

    ConsWomen do not advance as fast as men.
    Product evolution and process still very US-focused.
    A lot of staff in US headquarters with too much middle management and a lot of 'Directors'. Easier to get promoted to Director if you are US based or have a manager who is in the US.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHigher bar for promotion to Director. Don't give out the title to different levels.
