    I worked at Expedia Group full-time

    Pros

    Friendly and full of the positive vibes, this was the work environment in the office. I met many talented managers and coworkers there. Additionally, imagine how fun working in travel industry was before corona.

    Cons

    1. This industry was too weak to survive this corona pandemic. 2. From some point, this company introduced AI working system and it took our creative for work away a bit.

    Pros

    Amazing work culture Best team I have ever worked with in my 9 years in the travel industry A lot of internal opportunities pre-COVID days Engagement in hot topics such as D&I, Wellbeing Amazing office and flexible work environment High focus on getting work done vs. working long hours (good work-life balance)

    Cons

    One of their guiding principles are Simplify - however I believe there is still a long way to go to streamline processes within various teams

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

    Pros

    Getting the chance to work with some really smart people, more casual and easy-going work environment and dress code than most companies.

    Cons

    This used to be a fun and creative company with a start up like culture, especially in engineering. No more! Unfortunately, under the new management (after Dara Khosrowshahi left) Expedia is fast turning into another boring corporation. This used to be a place where people had fun at work and enjoyed themselves. Right now it's a lonely place where people are hiding behind their headphones like at so many other companies. Mark Orkestrom seems to be a promotional CEO and even his laughter seems rehearsed. Personally, I don't trust much of what he says. A lot of the inspirational leaders like Aman Bhutani have been leaving in droves and have been replaced with careerists who try their best to make people work harder and harder. This leaves less time to work smart, be creative and come up with new ideas. The company has been on a path to centralisation and unification which actively discourages trying new things and forces everyone to use the same tools and methodologies. On top of this you have the long term Expedia problems with company cult-like culture, active promotion of certain social and political views and constant re-organisations. The turnover is extremely high, to the point that there is not much stability at all. Getting a promotion is very difficult when your manager changes every year, sometimes even twice a year. Last but not least benefits have been cut, for example the health care provider was replaced with one offering less benefits and encouragement for healthier lifestyle. Loyal employees are not really rewarded for sticking with the company. The 3 extra days leave people used to get after 5 years of loyal service have been scrapped. Personally I got a promotion without any salary increase at all. As a result a lot of loyal employees have been packing their bags in the last year or two. No wonder the company is no longer anywhere near the best places to work in the UK on Glassdoor ,a list it used to top. Even worse, I feel that with the current management team Expedia as a place to work is heading only one way - down!
