Ever-evolving place

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Expedia full-time

ProsGreat work-life balance.
Trust in executive leadership team.
Very cool London office. Good social environment.

ConsWomen do not advance as fast as men.
Product evolution and process still very US-focused.
A lot of staff in US headquarters with too much middle management and a lot of 'Directors'. Easier to get promoted to Director if you are US based or have a manager who is in the US.

Advice to Senior ManagementHigher bar for promotion to Director. Don't give out the title to different levels.

Senior Sourcing Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Expedia full-time for less than a year

ProsPay wells, supports you, is a felxible and rewarding company, they invite you to feedback and you have all of the tools at your disposal to enable you to be successful in your role. If you need more - as long as you talk about it, there is a way to move forwards

ConsYou need to be flexible with your hours on occasion IF you are career driven. I am NOT aware of any company where this is not required now.
