Does Expedia Group offer massages?

Pros

Aligned to the Tech sector they pay really well for the work we do. Benefits are great (1 yr Maternity) and the office is really laid back with free drinks and beers once a month

Cons

In Finance the director+ level is really poor. Younger staff will not learn anything from their mangers and are essentially left to themselves learning on their own or if lucky with other inexperienced/junior staff. As a result business processes do not improve and deteriorate over time. The directors I have seen are best described as "followers" not "leaders". Many managers are unable/unwilling to make decisions regarding issues, projects or processes. They tend to wait for others to make decisions for them and rarely offer an opinion. Really not a good place for a junior person to start and learn something. Most people leave for the same reasons: jobs tend to be very dull (copy/paste, pivot, publish, repeat), poor career prospect and poor middle management team. Good people don't stay. There are better finance teams out there.

Does Expedia Group have a pension plan?

Pros

The people and workforce are Expedia's best asset. You will work and interact with (mostly) great people of different backgrounds and nationalities. The international mix is enjoyable and even addictive. You will make friends for life, even after you have resigned from Expedia. Expedia has a few nice benefits: pension contribution (doubling of your own monthly contribution), meal vouchers, yearly wellness budget to spend on whatever you prefer. If you are looking for a company with nice people that provides a stable monthly income for only 8 hours a day and you are not too ambitious then you should consider sending your CV.

Cons

Previous decennium Expedia was listed in the top 5 best employers world-wide until a number of years ago, yet unfortunately has been reduced to a below-average typical US-led corporation which is no longer interested in the concerns of its human capital. Expedia's answer to any problem is to implement more corporate policies, processes, procedures, more restrictions and in particular more micro-management. You will be measured and monitored for your entire online activity. Only working cases is marked as productivity. The providing of training, mentoring, or learning about new processes or technologies are considered as non-productive activities. Experience, seniority and added value have a negative effect on your statistics. At the end of the day/month/year you are a number with performance statistics in some Excel. Management is not supportive but will remind you of your corporate duties and not to expect anything or question any decision making. The result is that many well-performing, knowledgeable, experienced employee have left the company annoyed and frustrated while other non-performing employees can remain in the company (as long as they produce the bare minimum of statistics). Expedia is not a knowledge-driven organisation that invites proactiveness or changes but instead a rigid corporation that rewards obedience and compliance.

Advice to Management

Please review your Recruitment and Human Resources activities and policies. They are non-functional, indifferent, ineffective, non-present. Try to inspire your employees instead of giving them the standard corporate templated replies. Provide better options to employees regarding career planning, in terms of changing positions, individual training. The company needs more leaders with vision of human capital and less 10-in-a-box managers without courage or willingness to support its subordinates.
