    Pros

    Great working environment
    Expectations are clear and fair
    Good hours (40-45 a week)

    Cons

    Expedia is a mediocracy. Don't come here if you expect to be surrounded by hyper-intelligent and motivated people.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for talent and hold workers accountable. Otherwise other Seattle based tech companies will continue to poach workers.

    Pros

    The culture is incredible. The company cares about employees and fosters work/life balance. Many growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything major. It can be pretty competitive though if you're not into that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Decent work life balance. If you are good you can climb up the ladder very fast.

    Cons

    Too many teams spread across the geography. Compensation is too low as compared to companies in and around Seattle.

    I have been working at Expedia (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Regular 'town hall' meetings led by CEO/CFO, meetings with senior leadership, and immediate leadership. Expedia really takes care of their employees, and everyone at the company has a passion for what they do, and for making travel possible.

    Cons

    Some teams have very unrealistic workload expectations. Sometimes get the sense that initiatives/processes weren't fully thought through before they were rolled out.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time sitting with employees to really get a sense of the day to day. We all very much appreciate when our senior leadership visits various offices, but they need to do more than have one-on-ones with employees and take them out to lunch or dinner as a team.
