    Pros

    Quickly adapted to wfh and are very flexible with staff during the pandemic. Placing greater focus than ever on mental health and well-being. Great benefits, travel allowance, travel entitlement, wellness allowance. Amazing central London offices. Very smart people at the company. A truly global feel. New CEO joined early 2020 - there is true trust and faith he will see us through. Great focus on Inclusion and Diversity. Stripping out excessive middle management. Increased focus on performance, recognising great talent and resolving those who coast. Awesome product!

    Cons

    Lots of change and restructures. Many in uncertain times - travel in a pandemic is not a great place to be. Can be a little chaotic - a by product of a leadership change and a global lockdown. There will be many changes for more time to come.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Expedia Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Work with a diverse group of people - Company objectives well defined and everyone is passionate about what they're doing

    Cons

    - Lots of ambitious young people which sometimes leads to conflict and toxic competition - Lots of people in senior roles who don't actually know what they're doing and have been promoted due to long service within Expedia.

    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in Austin, TX

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Expedia Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I've been here for 6 years though until recently was a Vrbo employee. It's definitely different since we became "EG" (Expedia Group) and a LOT of our top talent is leaving for better pay elsewhere in Austin. However, I've had a great run. I feel respected, have a lot of autonomy, love my coworkers (who haven't left!) and have the flexibility I need in my life. Pay is better now than it was, but still medium compared to the tech industry. I know I could make more elsewhere but the flexibility, trust, and autonomy are worth a whole lot to me. Oh, and the PTO policy is very very generous. Peter Kern is an excellent CEO.

    Cons

    Missing the old Vrbo folks who have left. EG generally has a lot of redundancy but they are getting better.

    I have been working at Expedia Group full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, work life balance, ok comp (not the best but fair), great location and office space

    Cons

    Still a bit all over the place when it comes to strategy, keeps re-orging and folks are feeling fatigued and over it. Have pockets of awesome folks but also lots of mediocre folks and heavily political people getting promoted to key leadership roles.

    I have been working at Expedia Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company tries hard to do the right thing and the new CEO is guiding it as good as someone could through Covid.

    Cons

    Work life balance has gone out the window over the last year with the effort to streamline and improve everything all at once to reduce costs and automate a lot of processes. Also the company has gone a bit deep into SJW, but its probably not as bad as some of the other companies.
