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

Pros

Nice office with convenient location.

Cons

Terrible management, which is essentially just a 'good ole boy's club'. Management only promotes their buddies, and treat other employees like garbage. At least in my organization, employees averaged 50-60 hour weeks for months on end with no vacation allowed. Management hires and fires based upon their whims and current mood.

Advice to Management

Perhaps try rethinking how

    Pros

    Expedia's executive team had undergone a series of tumultuous changes, but the head of HR was fantastic. Her leadership ensured that the team managed through those changes effectively.

    Cons

    In the years since I left, I hope that the tidal waves of change and reorganization have slowed and stabilized.

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

    Pros

    The engineers and design team I've worked with at Expedia range from excellent to good but my experience with HR has been horrific! They all seem to have extremely low IQ and most of them don't have college education.

    Cons

    Expedia is the only company I know of that hires people consistently with only high school degrees. Being an Engineering hiring manager, I worked closely with recruiters. One of the recruiters told me that the VP of HR said she had work experience as a recruiter and then she asked in a meeting what an ATS was (an ATS is Applicant Tracking System). It's like someone claiming to be a SW Engineer and then asks what Software is!

    Advice to Management

    Steer clear of HR; don't trust them.
