    I worked at Expedia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of different technology. You can work on just about anything you want there - they have it and it's prod.

    Cons

    The entire network, web, and application infrastructure is way too complicated and buggy. Nothing works right for long. So many bugs that nobody can define much less resolve. When someone makes a mistake because of this fail, they just fire them.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your staff, listen to their ideas on how to simplify and segregate the prod, test, and corp environments. Use a website staff and a corp/other staff. Don't expect everyone to know all facets of the network. Don't fire the workers, fire the management.
