Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Multiple offices around the world- transferring to new locations is possible
At the B2B level the company is very transparent- you have access to more resources than you could ever wish for (can also be a con)
Promotion, although a long process, is possible
Benefits are great- decent vacation, lots of travel perks, etc

Cons

Senior leadership and org structure changes seemingly every 3 months making it very difficult to know where you stand
Pay is below average intentionally
Lots of politics and game playing at all levels

    I worked at Expedia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The online travel space is highly competitive and Expedia has done well to maintain / grow its market share. The company is truly global with employees worldwide and offers numerous opportunities to travel. Good work/life balance

    Cons

    There has been significant management churn and lack of innovation. The organization is highly matrixed with too many owners making things move very slowly

    Advice to Management

    Set consistent and clear direction across all divisions. Minimize dependencies, remove ambiguity of ownership and overlap between teams.

    I worked at Expedia full-time

    Pros

    Creative and amazing people can be found throughout the organization
    A fun atmosphere
    A revamped performance system that allows the stars to really shine

    Cons

    Consistently high level of attrition during first year makes for constant churn and inability to get traction to resolve issues, drive change, or get anyone to take accountability.
    Tribal knowledge equals power so be ready for a lot of corporate politics and reorganizations that have no rhyme or reason.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the political reorganizations
    Take accountability to fix not band-aid the issues and for goodness sake promote that sometimes its good to have policies and processes.
