    Lots of change, constantly, which can get tiring Can be really difficult to get things done across more than one division, as they all have different processes

    Pros

    Fast paced, fun, dynamic and most of all flexible. A company where you don't make colleagues but friends

    Cons

    A re-org while it may be necessary, never solves everything

    Advice to Management

    Good work and fast response. However, some higher management is stuck in the past, and should also navigate at the speed of the business

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

    Pros

    High energy fast-moving culture where people are empowered to do great things. Everyone is friendly and collaborative, and there's a high degree of trust and autonomy which I value. The pay and benefits are also great.

    Cons

    Can be a bit chaotic because everyone is trying to do so many things at once.

    Pros

    - Excellent Work/Life Balance - Fast paced - Constantly evolving

    Cons

    - Can be bureaucratic at times

    Advice to Management

    Expedia has been going from a start up culture to a more corporate structure the last 5 years, that has meant additional bureaucracy, but it has also introduced a certain amount of consideration is going in to strategy for where we need to be in the next 10 years, rather than reacting to the market place. the current corporate culture is looking to remove duplication across the group, and drive efficiencies, where... are previously Brands were pitched against each other to compete. The more corporate structure is not for everyone, and at times it can be extreme, but it is getting better iteratively

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

    Pros

    Great LT, EPS has gone through some fast growth which means more is getting done now and we are aligned to move noticeably faster. It also means EPS have hired amazing people and the level of talent is exceptional!

    Cons

    The growth has not come without its typical issues, individuals and teams now try and hold on to their impact and value. Can get political if you want to work with others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing. Try to notice and recognise collaboration and cross functional project teams over individual teams

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Working with some of the smartest people in the industry is great. Flexible working is encouraged.

    Cons

    Teams operate in silos and knowledge and best practice are rarely shared. Roles are often highly ambiguous and it can be difficult to get buy-in for projects that don't originate in the US headquarters. Women typically get stuck at senior manager level.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring a few female directors wouldn't go amiss!

    Pros

    Work environment and flexibility is exceedingly good. Team dynamic is also a positive. Much empowerment allowed. Great company to work for.

    Cons

    Promotion opportunities can sometimes be hidden from general view therefore the impression is that there's someone's name on a role.

    Pros

    Good Benefits and Pay Great Teams Lots of autonomy Still feels like a startup

    Cons

    The company is growing super fast, and the teams are constantly changing and recruiting, this can cause a lot of noice within teams and they get distracted

    Advice to Management

    Trust your teams more, it's a smart group of people, instead of leading from the front, let your team sort it out. Delegate more
