    I worked at Expedia (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Expedia has an international team of people and you can learn a lot from all of them.
    Offices are great, great location, good salary, good professionals and happy team to work.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons right now. Sometimes some teams were a bit disorganised but nothing I haven't seen in any other company.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice to make teams to share more, connect between each other. Communication is fundamental in a company, mostly when it's that big. Sharing projects and experiences would help a lot.

    Internationalisation - still USA dominates view but working hard to change. Can be tough dealing with time zones of a west coast company!!

    Strong management doing the right things but CEO stock options package is ridiculous compared to size and performance of business Vs others in market and doesn't match incentives for employees

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    None. Everyone is over-confident and unpleasant. Egos abound and you are treated like a slave. The only pro is you can leave!

    Cons

    No work - life balance. Totally over-rated company. As outlined above, colleagues are not at all pleasant and the overall company vibe is really bad - avoid!
