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

Pros

Biggest 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.

Cons

They 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 ManagementAdvice

Take a cue from Amazon and focus much more on customer experience, and let this drive the way forward.

    I have been working at Expedia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Company culture. In general, it's a really relaxed environment. Attrition numbers differ, but for me, it feels like a very stable work environment. Very few, but justified layoffs.
    - Work/life balance. There is always a lot of work, but not excessive pressure. Plenty of company sponsored events and parties.
    - Prospective growth. Major IT changes happening that are reflecting positively on the company's outcome.

    Cons

    - Career development. It feels like there is no clear career path and no clear goals to be achieved in order to be promoted. The whole process is very subjective and it depends highly on the promotion budget.
    - Benefits are great, but compensation is a little below the market.
