    I have been working at Expedia full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The culture and values instilled in Expedia are great, nice relaxed but hard working atmosphere, some great (and clever) people to have as colleagues, encouraged to take responsibility for your actions, access to some new technologies, encouraged to socialise without feeling pressure to

    Cons

    Usual large business politics can interfere with work, rapidly changing priorities, some misalignment of resources, lack of 'external focus' within teams - not always enough cross-team collaboration to get the really big wins

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stabalise the management org structure, look to promote some of the better people within the business and realign some of the other resources to ensure there is a sustainable growth approach, hire more people who understand the 'real world' as well as being good coders/analysts
