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

No monetary benefit for sticking around; work/life balance depends upon the group

Product (Current Employee)
Bellevue, WA (US)

I have been working at Expedia full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Travel discounts. Good vacation benefits. Leisure travel reimbursement. OK culture.… Cons: There's no unified policy around working from home and they like to say they promote work/life balance, but when you have a manager that isn't… Advice to Senior Management: Be consistent. Trust your employees and don't be a manager if you can't talk directly to your directs. More communication. Don't penalize working parents.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
