A decent company to work for

Senior Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Bellevue, WA (US)

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

ProsBiggest pluses are work-life balance, and getting to know the travel business. The investments in SOA are really starting to pay off, and the stock price has reflected the growing strength of the business.

ConsThey aim for 50% percentile of compensation in the industry, so you generally will not see an strong offer when hired. The company is for the most part not on the cutting edge of technology. The investments in engineering are mostly just to get to a modern SOA architecture, and I don't see any attempt to leapfrog in the process.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a cue from Amazon and focus much more on customer experience, and let this drive the way forward.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
