    I have been working at Vrbo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Always jumping on the latest tech, so opportunities to learn new things are frequent. Collaboration is great, few egos that I've encountered. Most people and managers are genuine and very open/approachable. Frequent parties and celebrations Free breakfast every Friday Free snacks + coffee Plenty of free leftovers floating around the office at lunchtime. Domain location is more vibrant than your typical office complex Can work from home easily and often

    Cons

    Sometimes is like drinking from a firehose bcs the tech adoption moves so fast I think different teams work in vastly different ways, so everyone's experience may not be like mine A little too much big company process creeping in as we adopt Expedia practices and policies Too much agile focus now (too many meetings)

    I worked at Vrbo full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very solid learning culture with a high level of transparency across the company. Smart people with a passion for the vacation rental industry including big, interesting and challenging problems to solve. John Kim was instrumental in transforming to a learning culture.

    Cons

    Meeting overhead and growing political landscape within Vrbo and across Expedia.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on and prioritize the core business and what will differentiate Vrbo in the world of travel.
