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

    Company culture is joyful and fun. There're many interesting problems to tackle. Company is in downtown bellevue with a lot of great restaurants around.

    Vacations cannot accumulate after the end of the year.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, smart people, solid goals and objectives. Lots of tribes here which isn't a bad thing--as long as you get in with the right one.

    Cons

    Takes way to long to make decisions. Way too long for a company this size.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline. Streamline. Streamline.

    Pros

    Benefits are good including the travel discount. Location in downtown Bellevue makes an easy commute and good restaurants nearby. Some very talented individuals there.

    Cons

    Management practices "kiss up but kick down". Management doesn't see frequent turnover as a problem, yet this causes a huge drain of knowledge from the organization. The culture encourages doing what benefits me, not what's best for the company.

    I have been working at Expedia Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good use of third-party technologies (e.g. Splunk). Friendly culture, good work/life balance. Interesting product offering and mix of brands to work on.

    Cons

    Operational rigor is somewhat lacking -- production defects can languish for a long time. Performance reviews process is sometimes opaque.

    I worked at Expedia Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice office with convenient location.

    Cons

    Terrible management, which is essentially just a 'good ole boy's club'. Management only promotes their buddies, and treat other employees like garbage. At least in my organization, employees averaged 50-60 hour weeks for months on end with no vacation allowed. Management hires and fires based upon their whims and current mood.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps try rethinking how

    Pros

    most groups within expedia offer a good work-life balance

    Cons

    most of the groups within the company have little to no alignment in their actions to the direction of the company. With reorgs taking place multiple times a year, this doesnt come as a surprise though since the direction of the company itself is unclear to most employees. With a very short attention span when it comes to technology efforts, the company flounders at attempts to reinvent itself
