    Pros

    While I'm sure it differs from team to team, the one I'm involved with is wonderful! Everyone is really there to help each other out, but also push each other to do the best work possible. The atmosphere is positive, energetic and innovative.

    Cons

    There is constant change in the travel industry, which means constant change trying to keep up with new processes, rules, etc. This can be a little overwhelming for a new-hire, but you get used to going with the flow as you become more familiar with your position and the tools you work with.

    Pros

    Expedia is a great place to work. The people are really smart, collaborative and I learnt a lot in my 4 years there.

    Best things about Expedia are:

    - The leadership. Very pragmatic and approachable. You believe in them.
    - The people. Smart and helpful. Great career progression and one learns a lot
    - The perks- pay, benefits etc
    - Working with the latest technologies and methodologies.

    being headquartered in Seattle, the offshore office may feel a bit distant from the main action.

    Cons

    Being HQ is Seattle, the offshore offices can seem a little distant from the action

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the great path

    Pros

    Competitive package including pension and wellness benefits. Nice office. Sensible working hours with a not unreasonable amount of work

    Cons

    Based in Angel so you have to put up with the northern line. Even though there is a test and learn culture it can take a decent amount of time for people to act on tests showing poor performance

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the employees. Make us feel truly valued and focused on travel by incentivising staff to travel and visit new places as much as possible
