    Pros

    Great work life balance. The company's culture is excellent. Very interesting benefits.

    Cons

    The senior management is becoming increasingly disconnected from what is happening on the ground; they organise events for themselves around the world to come up with ideas nobody cares about and build hype around castles in the sky.

    I worked at Expedia Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice office, good opportunities to share ideas and understand other teams challenges, plus decent maternity. Can progress if you are passionate and can improve processes by working with other teams better. Some very good mentors and access to external training programs and study support. Lots of presenting so a good opportunity to improve presentation and communication skills.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, some employees share discriminatory remarks openly against African Americans/Asians and Muslims. After reporting to management of having discriminatory remarks told to me personally I was advised to think twice before taking further action. A few examples of incidents which I was involved in or was in the vicinity: an employee mentioned that a particular race are all thieves and Mosques should be... outlawed in the US. An employee mentioned that an Indian colleague wears curry cologne. In a meeting someone suggested that having a majority of white people working at Expedia is due to natural selection. After having a call with an Indian person the employee then imitated an Indian accent openly in the office and others laughed and encouraged them. An employee (Manager Level) of southern European origin working in London advised that all races should stay in their own country. Whilst this is certainly not representative of the majority these were unpleasant experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Whilst many good efforts are being made to battle gender bias there should be efforts to address discrimination in the workplace.

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

    Pros

    The work culture is unparalleled in that there really is little room for "politics". Colleagues are very helpful and supportive and its simply fun to work in such an environment. There is ample chance to have a diverse career both in terms of remit and in terms of location. It is very simple to talk to Senior Execs and the resulting culture tends to be very open for dialogue. I believe whilst pay is not the most... competitive at my level the balance of work/life, culture and benefits makes up for it.

    Cons

    The Company is becoming more centralised which is a necessary thing but can lead to a slightly more "top down" approach. There also has been a clear trend back to headquarters in Seattle for key decision making which is a watch-out depending on what you are looking for. Also it is probably best to be a specialist vs a generalist due to the centralisation of these functions. A watchout to those not in HQ is that now... in the global work process you can have meetings early Mornings or late at nights and need to be careful to balance this. If you are able to then you can have a good work/life balance but it is tricky for many people (especially with families)

    Advice to Management

    -Find ways to allow more work within regular time-zones -balance away slightly from the pure data driven T&L culture to slightly more innovation -take slightly more controlled risk

    "Limited growth, political environment"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Expedia Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Plethora of technologies to work on. Though as a brand, they try to follow in the footsteps of the GAFA companies rather than being a leader at innovation.

    Cons

    - Limited growth opportunities despite many open-ended discussions with Senior Management and Leadership - A very heavy political arena to deal with where the employee is always being scrutinized - Advertises "open culture" - but far from being one - The brand just looks for "Delivery junkies" rather than industry leaders/innovators

    Advice to Management

    Please review employee feedback and act upon them swiftly, instead of just rolling out fancy management tools to collect them and ignore !!!
