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

    Pros

    Humble, but very bright leadership team. Lots of learning opportunities for growth. Internal promotions favoured over going external. Sideway moves into other job areas encouraged.

    Cons

    As the company is at the forefront of the tech/travel space, it changes continually. So you have to be able to thrive in an environment like that. Need to put more emphasis on product design to match the tech underneath.

    Advice to Management

    Show us where you want to take us in the next 3-5 years, rather than just the next 1-2 sprints

    Pros

    Expedia is one of the best places I've worked, it have a great life-work balance and amazing benefits. Here you have the opportunity to work with people from all around the world.

    Cons

    Expedia is like any other big company, internal politics are part of your day job, nothing major to be worried about though.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't change, our leadership team is very inspiring!

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work environment and flexibility is exceedingly good. Team dynamic is also a positive. Much empowerment allowed. Great company to work for.

    Cons

    Promotion opportunities can sometimes be hidden from general view therefore the impression is that there's someone's name on a role.

    Pros

    Good Benefits and Pay
    Great Teams
    Lots of autonomy
    Still feels like a startup

    Cons

    The company is growing super fast, and the teams are constantly changing and recruiting, this can cause a lot of noice within teams and they get distracted

    Advice to Management

    Trust your teams more, it's a smart group of people, instead of leading from the front, let your team sort it out. Delegate more

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

    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.
