    Expedia is one of the best places I've worked, it have a great life-work balance and amazing benefits. Here you have the opportunity to work with people from all around the world.

    Expedia is like any other big company, internal politics are part of your day job, nothing major to be worried about though.

    Please don't change, our leadership team is very inspiring!

    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

    I worked at Expedia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working environment and work life balance are second to none. Great perks as well and good wages, in line or above market average. Opportunities to work with teams across multiple time zones and as well as travelling providing you're senior enough in the company's hierarchy.

    Cons

    It can be hard to be promoted and do career progression if you don't know the right people and you don't work in a team with high visibility projects across your department.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on managing and coaching your direct reports and less on maintaining senior management over-informed most of the time.

    "Best Employer I've Ever Had"

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

    Pros

    Although I've never worked for such a large, global employer before, Expedia Inc. are, hands down, the best employer I've ever had. It's the right mix of perks, working for such a big player (structure, benefits, development, technologies and tools) but still with enough work to do (enough opportunity) for you to make your mark and actually make a difference for customers and for the business. Lots of vacancies because of growth (not attrition), fairness and consistency all round.

    Cons

    Can sometimes feel difficult to drive change, as the business is so vast. Change can be quite slow-paced at times, because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Work to a true agile, dynamic environment - don't just say we're agile :)

    Pros

    Great people, fun atmosphere, like a media agency, but in house.

    Cons

    Politics and awful time to implement and execute. Diversity is only between white men and now women.
