    Pros

    Expedia is the best place to work. I have been here for 11 months and enjoying every single day. The culture is upbeat, leadership is transparent , clear on direction, very well organized process oriented company. Awesome work life balance. The technology stack is cutting edge, if you love working on AWS then this is the place to be. Great learning opportunity, great location in downtown Chicago, amazing office space.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Expedia is a great place to work. The company is a technology leader, has great benefits and the corporate vibe is just right for me. There is little to no micromanagement and a great work/life balance.

    Cons

    No major "cons" to share. It's a big company so just prepare for that part of the experience.

    Pros

    People are kind, smart and hard working
    The programs are well thought out and there does seem to be strategic leadership
    Solid benefits.

    Cons

    Like any huge enterprise, change is slow and new initiatives and new thinking takes a long time.

    Advice to Management

    The whole Job Rank thing was not mentioned during my interview process, nor did I see it in any of my offer information. Once hired, however, I understood how the job rank constrains opportunity for career growth. I imagine that you think most people would assume that is how your internal processes work - but for those of us coming from companies with fewer than 10k people, it is new and different. I would recommend that you be more transparent about these details during the interview process.

    I worked at Expedia Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits were outstanding; the new "flex-time" policy for administrative positions is one of the best morale enhancers I have seen in a business. The people are outstanding as well. There is a position for everyone here: There are relaxed and fast-paced positions, there are data and tech positions, and there are non-technical positions. All positions are pretty secure, at least within the admin side.

    Cons

    There is a lot of repetition and data entry to everyday tasks. For some, this may not be a con as the work is very slow to change and is predictable. But for those with goals of growth, it may be challenging to adapt to the repetition.
    There is also a high turnaround for Supervisors (but not for operations employees). In the almost 3 years with the company I had 5 supervisors, which I feel did not allow time to build a solid professional relationship.

    Advice to Management

    Speaking for the Expedia Global Payments department, my thoughts are that there needs to be more Analyst positions to alleviate the technical responsibilities of middle management, because people leaders are disappearing from the culture, which negatively affects Operations.
