    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.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, relaxed environment, smart collegues. Quality work is encouraged so is initiative. Compensation is performance focused rather than experience focused.

    Cons

    Limited career growth in satellite office. Travel benefits are not as good as in HQ for canadian employees. Workload varies a lot from team to teams. Managers skills varies a lot from team to team. Some are very technical with poor management skills. Other are great people managers without any idea of the technical challenges on projects.
