    I have been working at Expedia full-time

    Pros

    It has been exciting to be a part of a growing company that offers a product which crosses over from an individual's worklife to their recreational life. With so many choices at great prices, customers will be back time and time again.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, without a cost of living raise offered, an individual must always perform above average in order to get any kind of a raise. For a person who is just meeting expectations, they can not keep up with their loss in wage value due to inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Two things:
    1. Take better care of your customers/vendors. It's much easier to retain them than to gain new ones.
    2. Offer at least a cost of living raise so an individual can maintain the value of their wages.

    Pros

    Smart, fun people. Excellent pay and benefits. Dara (the CEO) is engaged and interested in winning - which keeps you on your toes but is fun.

    Cons

    If you speak McKinsey, you'll thrive. If not, you will be endlessly bogged down in revisions to "decks" that talk a lot but don't actually say anything. You spend an inordinate amount of time navel-gazing instead of doing, along with specializing in opinion management. It's a tiring way to work. Plus the people of Seattle are VERY passive-aggressive...which really gets in the way of moving quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the B-school management consulting hacks. Stop bringing in so many people from the outside when you have great people ready to advance. Promote qualified women more.
