    I worked at Expedia Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Not able to figure out a single reason -why one should work with Expedia and not with Amazon or Google or Microsoft.

    Cons

    Hiring and firing is normality. 80:20 rule, 20% of smart people run the show and the rest can talk well

    Great company, so many benefits and great culture. It is possible to move other departments and grow within the company but very slow.

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

    Pros

    - Cannot wait for the awesome benefits to be rolled out including paid health insurance, Wellness Benefit, Travel Benefit and extended annual leave with tenure - Open, empowering and flexible management who encourage and support growth - A team culture that is kind, honest and really aim to work together towards a common goal - Flexible work environment that is based on trust

    Cons

    - Being a global, matrixed company it can sometimes mean meetings are at crazy hours e.g. 11pm BUT it is very flexible so you can come in a little later the next day - Brand migration has had its challenges though we have a strong long term plan in place
