I worked at Expedia

Pros

Loads of travel
Autonomy
Great office environment and colleagues
Pay is better than most travel companies (But less than tech companies)

Cons

Work hours can be long, staff expected to work late if required and weekends if necessary
Remuneration is occasionally unequal (some staff get share options, some don't)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure remuneration is equal across staff on the same grades. when I was there tech staff got large share allocations, private label staff and supply contracting staff didn't.
Deal with problems before they escalate. In the sales based role I was in, several times it got to September before we got annual targets.

    Pros

    Recent technology leadership changes are very positive. Old ideas lost to progressive elements. This can only help with attitude and productivity.

    Cons

    It is a shame the cuts didn't go deep enough. Constant churn at the VP layer suggests something may be amiss higher in the group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Is this clumsy collection of infighting, internal politics, and mediocrity the best way forward? Come on Dara, you can do better than this.
