    I have been working at Expedia full-time (Less than a year)

    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 wonderful company to work for. First and foremost because of the people. The culture is amazing. When you have a great company culture, you have great people and overall a better work environment. Expedia is innovative, fast pace, always changing and striving to have the best experience possible for our customers. We are a technology company, with a focus on being customer-centric and that shows with how Expedia treats its employees.

    Cons

    There are a lot of moving parts. We all rely on each other to get the job done.

    Excellent management. Had bi-weekly meetings with manager to review current workload, how everything was going, and adjustments that could be made to be more effective or efficient.

    Work could at some points get tedious.

    I worked at Expedia full-time

    Pros

    At the time the benefits snd 401k was ok but right after I left Expedia vamped up HA's benefits.

    Cons

    Same issue mentioned on the interview questions. I graduated from TX State SQL/Java Script classes on my own dime. They had no tuition reimbursement at the time. They didn't use the fraud skills that many employees had/have. They turned us into CSR.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your employees and their talents. I was fully trained in SQL, Accertify, SAP and other IP blacklisting programs which was used. I didn't mind not getting credit for many things bevsuse I knew I had other companies emailing me on LinkedIn.

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - I feel supported by my team and department
    - There's a willingness to try new things and learn together
    - Support and resources of a large organization with a small team culture

    I've been at Expedia in the Chicago office less than 6-months, and I've already been encouraged to try new things and bring new ways of thinking to my role and team. I feel the company has been really receptive to it and willing to take risks so long as we learn from them. And while we are part of a larger organization, the small team structure allows us to operate with all the benefits of a "startup-like" atmosphere: scrappiness, working together, and a can-do attitude.

    Cons

    - There are some complexities to any large organization

    Advice to Management

    - Keep supporting your employees / teams and pushing us to try new things together

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The casual environment, open floor plan (no offices) and collaborative environment makes me want to do my best work everyday. The people are friendly, supportive and seem to love what they do. The compensation and benefits package are really great too!

    Cons

    Because we are a global company, it can be difficult to navigate through the organization to get the information you need.

    Advice to Management

    We need a better intranet system that makes finding answers easier.
