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

    Pros

    Working environment and work life balance are second to none. Great perks as well and good wages, in line or above market average. Opportunities to work with teams across multiple time zones and as well as travelling providing you're senior enough in the company's hierarchy.

    Cons

    It can be hard to be promoted and do career progression if you don't know the right people and you don't work in a team with high visibility projects across your department.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on managing and coaching your direct reports and less on maintaining senior management over-informed most of the time.

    Pros

    Although I've never worked for such a large, global employer before, Expedia Inc. are, hands down, the best employer I've ever had. It's the right mix of perks, working for such a big player (structure, benefits, development, technologies and tools) but still with enough work to do (enough opportunity) for you to make your mark and actually make a difference for customers and for the business. Lots of vacancies because of growth (not attrition), fairness and consistency all round.

    Cons

    Can sometimes feel difficult to drive change, as the business is so vast. Change can be quite slow-paced at times, because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Work to a true agile, dynamic environment - don't just say we're agile :)

    Pros

    Young colleagues from a variety of different backgrounds and cultures - always makes for a great working environment!

    Cons

    Seems like the company hasn't accepted how large they are - needs to stop portraying itself as a hip, entrepreneurial environment as it's no longer that.

    Pros

    Great people, fun atmosphere, like a media agency, but in house.

    Cons

    Politics and awful time to implement and execute. Diversity is only between white men and now women.
