I have been working at Expedia full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

+ Smart, talented teams
+ Great travel perks (3+ weeks, plus travel stipend annually)
+ Employees feel empowered to make changes/improvements

Cons

- Limited ability to work from home
- Too many process issues
- Old technologies that need to be updated

Advice to Management

Limit the number of leadership changes that happen on a regular basis. The new review process looks promising. I like the direction that the company is going in regards to employee development and work satisfaction.

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

    Pros

    I've worked here a year and can say that I enjoy the people very much. And the management has it right as far as setting an example, listening to the engineering teams and being willing to try new things. The environment is very fast paced and learning who to talk about this takes some time.

    Cons

    As an engineer I have to touch a lot of servers, load balancers, documentation etc. Plus I have tools like splunk, remedy and etc that I need to use. It literally took months to get access. It should almost be automatic based on the group you are in. And making requests to other groups can be very tiresome. Remedy basically sucks and everyone has gone around it in some way or other except to write the final change request.

    Advice to Management

    Fix some of these internal nagging issues for requests or access to systems.
