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

    Pros

    Great culture, great team spirit. Supportive managers. Fast pace. Great place to be the first to try new technology and tools. Opportunities to show leadership all the way down to the most junior employees.

    Cons

    Bias for action sometimes a substitute for achievement. Silos. A lot of redundant information floating around. Teams can block each other due to lack of shared objectives. Strong product focus, not enough customer focus.

    Advice to Management

    Define clear objectives.
    Do more ecommerce.

    Pros

    Humble, but very bright leadership team. Lots of learning opportunities for growth. Internal promotions favoured over going external. Sideway moves into other job areas encouraged.

    Cons

    As the company is at the forefront of the tech/travel space, it changes continually. So you have to be able to thrive in an environment like that. Need to put more emphasis on product design to match the tech underneath.

    Advice to Management

    Show us where you want to take us in the next 3-5 years, rather than just the next 1-2 sprints

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (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

    Great building and good perks

    Cons

    Old school HR with a very Victorian approach to everything. Poorest performers in HR yet they are never exited.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your HR team, right from the top. Old school and inflexible. Poor leadership throughout the entire team.

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

    Pros

    Very collegial, depending on the team by mine is very chilled. The London office is typical of a tech company, open space, ping pong tables, free drinks. Many social activities.

    Cons

    Pay is not comparable with other tech companies. Also Expedia has too many similar brands doing the same job, they are competing with one another.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the company/brand portfolio in the long run.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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