    I have been working at Expedia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Friendly environment with lots of nice, helpful people.
    2. Sometimes have interesting projects with cool technologies in AWS, this will be very helpful later in any dev's career.
    3. Flexible work hours and work at home is allowed in moderation.
    4. Good updates from senior management, Mark Okerstrom seems like a good CEO with lots of passion for the travel industry.

    Cons

    1. At least in my org, priorities change too rapidly and it severely hampers motivation.
    2. There are often huge disconnects between teams which slows down progress and causes lots of redundant work.
    3. Compensation and Benefits are not on par with other large companies in the area.
    4. Sometimes very political with middle management not totally in touch with what developers are doing and how they feel.
    5. The single biggest issue for me is that on my team, velocity of work is not tracked at all. I don't think lower/middle management has a clue who is producing and who is not.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to stick to the plan more often. Take more time to come up with a plan if needed. As developers "doing the work", it is very demotivating and frustrating when we work on so many short term projects as it makes it difficult to see a longer term vision.

    To train the employees better and allow the agent to use their PTO.
