    I have been working at Vrbo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing place to work with great benefits, pay and a lot of little ways that the company shows it's appreciation. The kind of company you want to work for. There is a great work life balance. If you have more work than you can do, people still understand if you leave at 5 and don't work on weekends. Not only would you be happy just working here, the opportunities for career growth and development are amazing. If you're doing valuable, innovative work you'll see a lot of doors open up. The company is exploding with growth and I'm excited to see where we take it

    Cons

    Some corporate policies of Expedia Group like the annual budget request cycle and bonus schedule can be annoying.

    I worked at Vrbo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They put a lot of effort into manufacturing a culture. They might not necessarily live it day by day, but there is a clear effort to make it seem like its a #fun place to work. The team leaders know the work is awful and they genuinely seem to care about their team members.

    Cons

    Metrics, metrics, metrics. The training team doesn't prepare you for what its going to be truly like on the floor. Certain teams are lacking in numbers and are unable to efficiently handle their workload, so the new trainees are pulled aside and "coached" that they need to perform a specific task that they've never been trained in, let alone knew was a thing. They also use the word "coach" alot. "So and so did this; I think I'll have to give him a coaching." You're going to "coach" me? Okay, person who has a #goodvibesonly bumper sticker. Don't buy the hype - you're a number and you don't help people. You're there to ensure that Vrbo doesn't lose money, not help travelers in need.
