Pros

interesting industry, interesting work, smart people

Cons

Getting more and more corporate and much less agile over time; a natural evolution for any company, but painful to watch nonetheless. Efforts are being made to resist that, of course.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, including travel benefits. Opportunity to balance many projects. Fun place to work. Expedia is still a very young company, so still has some of the perks of an early start up, though those are quickly going away (t-shirts, picnics, fun holiday party.) Work life balance is good. Since they low ball salaries, it is a good place to get some experience, but you may not want to stay long.

    Cons

    Promotions are nearly non-existent and the ones that are given out, it is not clear why or how the person got it. Very little recognition for a job well done. Low ball salary and no clear criteria on how bonuses are given out. Departments are very autonomous, so there is a lot of duplication of effort. Leadership was put in place because they have been in travel for a long time, not because they are good leaders. There is little to no internal leadership training, so no expectation of leaders learning leadership skills. No value in keeping valuable employees.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize leadership skills and promote from within. Recognize that your most valuable resource is your staff and treat them well.
