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

    Pros

    Great building and good perks

    Cons

    Old school HR with a very Victorian approach to everything. Poorest performers in HR yet they are never exited.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your HR team, right from the top. Old school and inflexible. Poor leadership throughout the entire team.

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

    Pros

    Very collegial, depending on the team by mine is very chilled. The London office is typical of a tech company, open space, ping pong tables, free drinks. Many social activities.

    Cons

    Pay is not comparable with other tech companies. Also Expedia has too many similar brands doing the same job, they are competing with one another.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the company/brand portfolio in the long run.

    great oppotunity to grow within the company, great benefits, great people

    I worked at Expedia as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great and modern offices with monthly after work drinks to mingle with co-workers.
    You're able to work remote.

    Cons

    As a contractor you don't get full company benefits. No annual work review as permanent staff and transparency as well as clear strategy is/was missing. Hard to get permanent if it's not a crucial position for the company. Lots of unpaid overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency and more benefits.

    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.

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

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

    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
