    Pros

    Supervisors and Managers listen to you and treat you like a person.

    Cons

    Flextime and working remotely not widely used. Depends on the department and Manager. Promotions are hard to get.

    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

    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.

    I worked at Expedia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The health insurance is amazing! PPO that is cheap and covers so much. 12 week paternity and maternity leave paid at 100% PTO could be better

    Cons

    Management is hectic, constant change with very little direction. Management reactive to any change and will hurt any employee to get ahead. If you can not relocate you will not move up. HR polices are extreme and even when issues are happening they dont care.

    Advice to Management

    relax, make the right decisions and don't bite the hand that feeds you.

    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.
