    Pros

    While I'm sure it differs from team to team, the one I'm involved with is wonderful! Everyone is really there to help each other out, but also push each other to do the best work possible. The atmosphere is positive, energetic and innovative.

    Cons

    There is constant change in the travel industry, which means constant change trying to keep up with new processes, rules, etc. This can be a little overwhelming for a new-hire, but you get used to going with the flow as you become more familiar with your position and the tools you work with.

    Pros

    - Use of best practices and latest technos make you feel like you are at the top of the game in software development.
    - Developers have the freedom of trying whatever they want technology wise as long as they learn something out of it.
    - Awesome benefits ! The best you can imagine. Really.
    - Each and every day you will learn something new and exciting provided you put in your best foot forward.
    - Almost no office politics, people are smart and upper management is very supportive.
    - Best. Culture. Ever.

    Cons

    - New employees should get at least a little amount of formal training to ramp them up for such an overwhelming amount of technologies used.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on the good work and you will see skyrocketing results year after year because you are building your people well.

    Pros

    Great environment, excellent people, lots of room to grow

    Cons

    sometimes its hard to understand the expedia language and reports that easily

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to explain the basic tools for each position in a more personal way so everyone can learn at their own pace and feel they are not behind the group, because different people learn in different ways.

    Pros

    Really great company culture - work hard and play hard. Everyone really gets along and there is a real team environment. Has a "fun committee" which makes sure that the work environment is fun. Managers are really invested in your personal and professional growth and take the time to mentor you, not just manage you. Great benefits including the travel discount. Great on work life balance. Great benefits, especially hotel discounts. Company has really good values, with everyone doing their work with dedication and integrity, and treating each other with respect.

    Cons

    Compensation could be improved. While there is good benefits and they are flexible with time off, the base salary is quite low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate and reward employees as they deserve.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and get to travel, with good benefits and a overall good place to work. I would recommend Expedia to anyone.

    Cons

    Ratio of managers to developers is high. Managers seem to hire a lot of other managers. There should be much less time spent in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say reconsider compensation compared to the market.
