    I have been working at Expedia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, lots of social events, some good benefits, international environment. Angel Building is a great office. (Angel Square is awful. Two different worlds).

    Cons

    Difficulty in growing in your career or to move to different teams.
    All depends on the department you are in. Avoid GSO - it has nothing to do with the rest of Expedia. The way it works is very old style. Lots of control, no career prospective, very structured. Management has no clue.

    Advice to Management

    If you wonder why Expedia dropped from number 1 place to work to in the UK to the 14th position, have a closer look at :
    - Some of your departments have nothing to do with Expedia culture
    - Your HR
    - Angel Square office

    I have worked in 2 different departments. One was great. very in line with Expedia culture. I loved it.
    he other is GSO, which is a different world. Stuff is underpaid for very high targets, the work is over controlled, lots of micromanagement, no career growth.
    You encourage people to move teams, but your HR department is ridiculous. Lots of mistakes in job description, feedback are all the same. There is also the feeling that there is an age discrimination. You prefer to get external candidate under 30, rather than an internal one in their 30s.
    Angel Square building is not comparable to Angel Building. Some basic stuff like the toilets need to be improved.
    I would give Expedia a good review and would recommend to a friend.
    I give GSO a negative review and would never recommend a friend to work there

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

    Pros

    Great culture, benefits and opportunity! I get flexibility to suit my lifestyle but also a great office environment.

    Cons

    Nothing yet- quite a few internal systems but easy to use.

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

    Pros

    Open and honest people all the way from the top down to front line. Great place to realise your own potential - so many opportunities to move around, try new things or change your career if you want to.

    Cons

    Sometimes multiple teams work on the same things, which can be a bit frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Set clear expectations, encourage teams to connect across silos - and do it yourself too

    Pros

    Have just started at Expedia and have to say that the interview/induction was one of the friendliest and most pleasant that I've ever experienced.

    Cons

    As a new starter, I'm currently only four weeks into the job so I am yet to experience any.

    Advice to Management

    I would say to continue doing the great job. It's extremely welcoming for newbies to join.

    Pros

    Great offices and good tech.

    Cons

    HR are a joke. Dreadful leadership and focus on process. They think they are a product. Crazy.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be more pragmatic with your approach. You are not a product. You are a service. Stop being so rigid.

    Pros

    Flexible Working
    Work life balance actually is a thing
    Smart people
    Very little politics
    Massively collaborative environment

    Cons

    Still many key decisions are driven out of the US, internally the company touts being Global and the importance of being globally distributed, and yet approval always seems to have to come out of Seattle HQ, which across 3 global regions slows the business down

    Advice to Management

    Make global mean global from a decision making process as well as a point of sale perspective.
