Pros

Fun work culture centered around smart people working hard
Strong focus on technology
Many opportunities to design and develop on latest technologies

Cons

On the technology side, Expedia is still struggling with the transition from rapid growth to established company. This transition has been going on for 5+ years and processes and organizations are still not stable. There are constant reorgs. Processes can be overwhelming and political.

Advice to Management

Technical processes and procedures need to be streamlined.

    Pros

    Very fair to the best employees - management provides better raises to employees who work hard and excel at what they do. They are also very supportive and helpful if you are looking to get into another position at the company, no matter how much they need you to stay where you are.

    If you're lazy and don't do a good job, chances are they'll keep you around, but your pay will reflect your behavior.

    Three weeks vacation/sick time is good compared to some other companies I've seen recently, but for a travel company, I think there should be more.

    Fitness reimbursement along with other random benefits.

    Good hotel discounts. Very supportive company culture.

    Cons

    Entry-level pay could be better. More time off to increase our travel knowledge. Crappy employees are allowed to linger and cause problems others have to fix.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and keep only the best, and increase pay so that the best only want to work for you. .

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great compensation provided. Nice place to work, other than career advancement. In Seattle, which is a very nice city and not expensive at all.

    Cons

    Leadership has issues with communications with the engineers. A bit laid back in planning for the future, and ad-hoc decisions made regularly, that throw the engineers a bit off.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly streamline processes and improve communication among management and engineers. Bring it back to the top of online travel sites.
