    Pros

    I used to work for Homeaway and everything was great until Expedia bought the company and started to make changes for the worst

    Cons

    Homeaway has lost its spirit and has been transformed by Expedia and now Expedia is deciding to end hundreds of jobs in Europe to save money and stay competitive when the Us strategy is what made Europe not competitive enough in the first place.

    Advice to Management

    Don't do everything according to numbers and forecast. Take advise on local people that know how things are locally. Stop thinking the whole world works the same way as in the US. Be more human. Maybe one day you'll learn ...

    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.
