    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    - Fantastic environment and facilities across all global offices - Employee benefits including subsidized healthcare, wellness / fitness, personal travel allowance, etc. - Close-knit, cohesive teams despite often being geographically disperse - Work/life balance is supported, particularly for virtual employees - Lives and breathes a 'performance pays' culture under its new leadership. Be prepared to work extremely hard just to get a modest target bonus. This is a company only interested in attracting and retaining THE top talent.

    Cons

    - Inconsistent approach to investment. Unwilling to spend in some critical areas but will blow millions in purchasing poor 'off the shelf' products or spend years binding resources developing in-house solutions. - At times very political. If you're not 'in the club', it can be very difficult to shape and influence business critical goals. Similarly with internal career progression where popularity rather than skill seems to govern internal staff movements. - I became increasingly dissatisfied with the 'do more, with less' mentality. Positions in my team were never backfilled once vacated. - Annual pay reviews and increases are out of step with market competition, barely keep pace with inflation. - HR and Payroll teams are terrible. Unresponsive to requests for assistance, poor communicators. Didn't follow through with promises made during redundancy process. - Employee Engagement ('Rate Your Stay') is a tick-the-box exercise each year. - Recruitment process is arduous due to the Talent team being perenially understaffed. As a candidate, you will pretty have have to get a referral from an existing staff member to even get a look-in. As a Hiring Manager, the process of backfilling a role or securing a new role takes months when it shouldn't.

    Pros

    Salary in line with local market Relatively autonomous Flexible working conditions Good ancillary benefits (private health, travel allowance)

    Cons

    Company lacks direction and focus and as a result is continually beaten by Booking Holdings with an ever-widening performance gap. Management is asleep at the wheel, unable to translate overall direction to clear, crisp instructions for divisions and teams US-centric structure and management style - if you're not working in Seattle, don't expect your career to advance. Also expect to work odd hours to overlap with US Teams are silo'ed and often don't share with one another

    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
