I have been working at Expedia full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- People are great - very positive and want to get to know you
- willingness of those around to help provide you info or give advice, either about work, travel, or both!
- Travel and health benefits are amazing

Cons

- Typical office politics
- sometimes a lack of desire to emphasize operational excellence

Advice to Management

Please look at establishing standards (especially in IT) for processes and tools for Operations as that will help in reducing overhead cost and allow that money to be shifted toward new ventures that can help keep Expedia at the top of travel

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Company culture. In general, it's a really relaxed environment. Attrition numbers differ, but for me, it feels like a very stable work environment. Very few, but justified layoffs.
    - Work/life balance. There is always a lot of work, but not excessive pressure. Plenty of company sponsored events and parties.
    - Prospective growth. Major IT changes happening that are reflecting positively on the company's outcome.

    Cons

    - Career development. It feels like there is no clear career path and no clear goals to be achieved in order to be promoted. The whole process is very subjective and it depends highly on the promotion budget.
    - Benefits are great, but compensation is a little below the market.
