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

    Pros

    Passionate about travel and technology, many opportunities to dive into different areas of eCommerce and the travel industry, travel benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    Competition in the travel space is incredibly strong so an entrepreneurship mindset is critical. For those that do not have the drive to build the business and look for opportunities to scale, this is probably not the right company for you.

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

    Pros

    $600 wellness benefit
    Company provides ORCA card (unfortunately the shifts here do not always follow bus schedules and there is no option to pay for parking and receive an ORCA card)
    Drinking at work (wait.. should this really be a pro?)
    Free softdrinks, milk, V8, water. Keurigs in some locations and starbucks machine in others. Several vending machines available for your unhealthy dieting pleasure.
    3 weeks vacation to start

    Cons

    Irregular work hours that will never be regular
    Seniority seems to have nothing to do with more desirable shifts (consistently seen newer employees start out at a better shift)
    "Leadership" team is checked-out, they don't care about the employees, regularly no show for one on ones or reschedule only to not show up for that one either.
    Changes are made with little employee feedback.
    Morale is horrible and the only communication that you see from the current manager is when he has another new policy to implement to further make this department mirror a call center.
    Coming to work and doing your job is not rewarded, to be rewarded you must send out constant over-communication and suck up to the manager as much as possible. You should also plan a lot of useless meetings that do not accomplish anything.
    Job is coded as salaried, leadership wont bat at eye if you decide to stay late, but if you need to leave early, come in late, or go to an appt during the day, you may find that they want you to make it up somehow.
    Salary is low, they compare their pay to Amazon which is similar but the Amazon employees receive OT and have more traditional hours.
    Tools are constantly becoming obsolete, department won't spend the money to get new tools to enable us to be more accurate in our jobs.
    Constant bugs with our main system and our leadership has mostly been ineffective at working with other teams to fix these bugs or other outages.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously look at this department, talk to the employees and make some huge changes.
