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

    Pros

    Amazing employee benefits
    We sell a very cool product - travel
    Opportunity for growth; you are encouraged to apply to roles within the company
    Our new Chicago office has a space for your every need (sit/stand desk, a library, phone booths, conference rooms, big couches and chaise lounges, amazing support staff, etc.)

    Cons

    While being part of a global company is amazing, teams tend to be organized by function rather than region so some employees have no direct coworkers here in the Chicago office. Some teams lack senior leadership in the office so we sometimes feel forgotten about.
    We are so big that sometimes it can take a while to find the answer you are seeking.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve access to employee resources

    Management can very widely from group to group and even in same department, what maybe true for one team can be drastically different for your team.

    Advice to Management

    Your employ centric and that is amazing keep it up! Have consistent rules in place for all group. Make sure that meeting time is productive time and not just there to make leadership look busy.

    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.

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

    Pros

    1. The best thing about Expedia is the people you get to work with and it is not just my opinion but everyone I know agrees
    2. The company is very task oriented, and gives employees the flexibility to manage their time with respect to that
    3. I have worked with some horrible bosses in the past but I have to say every single leader in this company is amazing. They are very thoughtful, they are always mentoring and giving you guidance to grow, they encourage people to grow through support and teaching which is the way I like to learn

    Cons

    1. We work in a very global environment so there are going to be meetings you take after 5 depending on how your team is structured.
    2. Compensation and benefits are really god however they are not as competitive as amazon or other tech giants.
