      Expedia: Past its prime

      Pros

      - Good vacation and fitness benefits - Good stock incentive program - Nice offices and a ton of training opportunities

      Cons

      - Upper management seems to be utterly lost, company currently in deep crisis - No clear future direction but instead a lot of „trash talking“ competitors and fairy-tale stories about new products - Lots of backstabbing between senior leaders leading to a massive exodus of experienced staff this year

      Multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary, diverse and exciting - but not much support for encouraging a good work/life balance

      Pros

      Expedia is the most fascinating and diverse place I've worked, my daily work brings me into contact with employees all over the world from whom I have learned (and am still learning every day) so much about the world we live in, about how people buy travel, and learning new skills from many different specialist in many different areas. The culture is friendly and helpful - you feel like you can approach anyone, even senior management, and find out whatever you need to know. Generally, the work ethic and atmosphere serves to encourage and develop you and those around you.

      Cons

      Things change frequently with the org structure - a reflection of the changing and challenging market, but also a 'no let up' approach from management. This, coupled with working with people all around the globe can lead to burn out if you're not careful - taking calls from ridiculously early in the morning to very late at night, just to be able to get that bit of information you're after in order to keep afloat in the job. Upper management may not look out for you on that score - so personal resilience is key in order to look out for yourself yet still manage to drive the results necessary in your role. There's an underlying feeling of 'don't expect to be able to move to part-time hours and expect to keep your career prospects' - could be particularly challenging if you are a new mum.

      Pros

      Good pay compared to other jobs in the area. Decent benefits. There are a handful of good folks that have stuck around.

      Cons

      Used to be a great place to work. Big shift in upper management before covid and the culture went downhill sharply. Covid has only made things worse. Extremely micromanaged, and the higher up you get in the food chain, the more cutthroat it gets.

      Toxic environment, underperforming management

      Pros

      Maybe benefits? Not many pros for 12+ billion revenue company. If you're looking to have the title based on years of experiences and not perform much at work, maybe this is a place.

      Cons

      Department is not flexible at all although the company tries to promote flexibility. Managers and above level rarely have technical capabilities to perform duties. Don't expect your manager will know what they're doing. There were many narrow minded individuals who are discriminatory towards non-whites in the department. Upper management is too busy spending most of their budget to outside consultants rather than spending it on current employees or to find a good candidate for the team. They also do not value your opinions and basically want you to be a puppet.
