A great place to work, but with some growing pains

I worked at Expedia

Pros

Loads of travel
Autonomy
Great office environment and colleagues
Pay is better than most travel companies (But less than tech companies)

Cons

Work hours can be long, staff expected to work late if required and weekends if necessary
Remuneration is occasionally unequal (some staff get share options, some don't)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure remuneration is equal across staff on the same grades. when I was there tech staff got large share allocations, private label staff and supply contracting staff didn't.
Deal with problems before they escalate. In the sales based role I was in, several times it got to September before we got annual targets.

    Pros

    Smart people. Still a lot of people around who are "get 'er done" types.

    Cons

    Political. HR plays too large a role in management decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build entrepreneurial spirit upon which Expedia was founded and seems to be getting lost.

    Pros

    It's a big online company but there is definitely much needed for imrpovement in order to make it work, some of this may happen with time.

    Cons

    Management lacks insight and direction. Or if they do have direction it is taking time to implement. There are many challenges this business has ahead of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward and recognise middle and lower management. This unfortunately doesn't occur very often. Also top management are not effectively trained in people management and leadership.
