    Very fun an exciting culture, intelligent and creative coworkers, supportive and helpful managers, commitment to employee development, travel perks, frequent celebrations and fun events on campus

    Career growth can be slow and promotions are few and far between. Salaries are typically lower than industry standards and annual raises are minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Protect the culture by making smart hires. Reward your strong performers.

    I have been working at Expedia Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are in control of your own career and are only limited by your own determination. Perks are around every corner. Flexible schedules. The pay is decent for entry level positions in the Springfield MO area and the benefits are fabulous. 401K matching up to 4%. Free Starbucks all day, plenty of vacation time, travel reimbursement, fitness reimbursement for anything that promotes fitness from fitness gear to gym memberships or classes. Medical doesn't eat up all your salary. Who you are as a person is just as important and even more than what you are on paper. I've been around the employment spectrum and I would say this is the yes company I have ever worked for. Honestly.

    Cons

    The schedules for some of the entry level positions leave something to be desired, but everyone has to pay their dues and performance will get you higher up in rankings to pick better schedules. Permanent schedules in other departments are the best I have ever had. Flexible. Flex time. Couldn't wish for more.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice for my current supervisors because they really do listen to us

    I worked at Expedia Media full-time

    Pros

    Perks and benefits are great. Working at "Expedia" will look good on your resume.

    Cons

    Management will work you like a slave and there is no career growth or advancement in this company. You will need to either change departments or companies.

    "20,60,20 toxic and politics"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Big growth in recent years. Must give credit to that. Money investment done well. Partner management done well.

    Cons

    Top leaders-middle layer-employees structure is more like 20-60-20. The company is a money making machine for top management And the HUGE crowd of middle management. They are like 80% of the company. A typical place where only non management staffs do the real work to build the products. Many managers are slackers.

    Top leaders are inspirational speakers. They make you trust, admire them so much, but when it comes to Feedback, Deliver, management is the only one who is giving Feedback, and employees are the only ones who do delivering.

    The company is also a former Washington Mutual 'mafia' occupied place. WaMus are very exclusive, causing an awkward situation where you are not welcome to be part of it, neither you can have a different voice. Awkward.

    Juniors, consider yourself warned, unless you want to become a useless person who is only good at politics, do not join. Your managers speak about you as such : do not tell these kids that they can get more salary somewhere else or they will all leave. You know someone who really care about your career or really smart does not talk like that.

    Advice to Management

    Trusting you was a mistake on my part.

    Pros

    Very good benefits (401k match, vacation, bonuses), very social culture where people see each other outside of work, very good position in the industry. Large focus on growing women to VP level roles. Good opportunities for people at the start or early in their careers. CEO is very involved at driving the company at multiple levels.

    Cons

    Difficult to get hired, standards are extremely high. Growth path for senior ICs is virtually non existent -- focus is on management roles at all levels. You really have to make the right social connections to have long term success.

    Advice to Management

    Moving to Seattle when 75% of workers are on the Eastside is a very bad idea. Must focus more on senior ICs and helping them move forward or else you will always lose the people who have the most knowledge and can be the most effective.
