    I worked at Expedia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company has the best environment I've worked at. I loved the culture, the work itself is pretty interesting and with so much potential.
    Amazingly good business plans that make you think this is the right path definitely.
    I had a hard time to leave the company because I felt so identified with the industry, with the company strategies and plans. I left for lack of opportunities and would absolutely love to go back. Unfortunately I was not offered any opportunity (not like I did not apply to other things).

    Cons

    Career path at this location is constrained (Dallas)
    Networking is key if you want to move to a different position.

    Advice to Management

    Dara leadership is absolutely inspiring and so it is Doug, Robert and the other leaders. Keep the culture

    I have been working at Expedia full-time

    Pros

    It's a great place to work. A lot of fun. You'll learn a lot. Despite what I say here, it is a career building move.

    Cons

    However, the compensation you'll get from Expedia is not competitive with similar companies in the Seattle area. Apparently this wasn't always the case, but it's certainly the case now.

    Advice to Management

    Expedia is falling behind the industry in compensation packages, fast. We're losing our best people, hand over fist. We need to increase pay to retain our talented engineers, or we're just going to bleed dry.

    Pros

    -- Great medical and dental plans
    -- Free theme park tickets, excursions and dining opportunities. It is a sales driven role so our partners want us to experience what they have to offer.
    -- Management wants you to succeed - Constructive criticism and many chances to learn

    Cons

    -- Partnerships with Timeshare companies can be a challenge for certain locations.
    -- With more people being comfortable with buying from the internet, it makes our onsite sales more difficult
