    I worked at Expedia full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture, teammates I worked with were amazing, good benefits,

    Cons

    "Leadership" didn't seem too insightful, one "leader" was never there, and when she was would stay in her office all day - very disconnected from the team she was supposedly leading.

    Advice to Management

    Engage more with your team, and actually listen to their insights.

    I worked at Expedia full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, good work/life balance, some truly amazing people, diverse work force

    Cons

    Like any corporate set-up, the actual job/people doing it doesn't matter. All they care about across all sites is making numbers "look good", and management is clueless about who is actually good at the job.

    No consistency between sites, its very much an us vs them mentality which hurts the department as a whole.

    No longer bothering to look for qualified candidates. Any warm body will do, then can't seem figure out why they're bleeding money in fraud losses.

    Not a lot of advancement opportunity if you're not at HQ.

    VERY political. It's who you know and how loud you can be, not what you know in this department.

    Sups and managers are almost always in meetings

    Senior management has no idea how this job is really done.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone is loud, does not mean they have any idea what they're doing.

    Invest in attracting better candidates, let a seat remain open until the right person is found. Throwing an unqualified person into this job is unfair to them and their co-workers.

    Promote from within, sups who haven't done this job can rarely coach someone how to do it better.

    Get your senior management to shadow, it's that simple.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Work life balance. Good benefits. Travel perks. Free beverages if that’s important to you. Like the fitness benefit.

    Cons

    Lower pay than industry. Slow to get things done. Too many chiefs in the kitchen. Good old boys in leadership roles. Internal promos aren’t as common and they often hire men from the outside for M level and above. Slow hiring process too.

    Advice to Management

    Slow hiring process too. Good people are snatched up quickly. EI if we want to get them we have to move fast and make wages more competitive for the region. Allow for more empowerment to drive for folks not in management.
