CS-Software Dev Engineer II (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – July 20, 2018
Too many cooks making too many things with no standards so getting systems to talk to each other is a nightmare. Nobody knew what the source of truth for data would be or could decide on a set data type for their projects. One project will get started only to be killed because you find out that another team using the same table or form will be unable to operate because their source of truth from data in the table is different from the source of truth for the other five teams that also turn out to be using the table.

Expedia is a good place to work...but it really depends on what department you're in & who your manager is. It has excellent benefits. Management at the highest level is good...however...at the lower levels it's kind of a lord of the flies situation
Cruise Resolution Agent (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 10, 2018
Working at Expedia is actually quite nice. Sure, the work isn't always fulfilling, but the coworkers are very nice and coming into work everyday doesn't always feel like a chore. The biggest issue I have is when it comes to our compensation, especially with pay. You'd think a multi-billion dollar travel company would be able to pay their workers a living wage so that I wouldn't have to live with my parents any longer at the age of 21 but I am unable to afford both my car payments and rent if I tried to move out. The benefits when it comes to vacation time is excellent but not really worth it if you don't have the money to take vacations!! The culture is very accepting and management does interact with their employees in a cordial manner but it doesn't entice me to stay. I need a place that pays me enough to comfortably afford car payments, rent, and with enough left over to take a vacation once or twice a year.
Corporate Manager (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 7, 2018
This is a okay job stressful takes a lot of strength to deal with this job you deal with complaints that you deal with pretty much every call you must be prepared to have a resolution and to be yelled at . The people you work with are nice, free drinks, very lenient dress code.

Global Forecast & Plan Analyst (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – May 15, 2018
I really enjoyed my 3 years here and the environment of autonomy and accountability. I had a lot of success in my time there, but I didn't feel as though I was overworked. My department was relaxed, yet effective; we were not mired in endless meetings or prolonged decision-making protocols. If an idea was exciting and made sense, management really encouraged us to seek it out. There aren't many ways to be creative as an analyst, but Expedia's leadership celebrated our ideas, rather than attempting to subdue them.
Technical Product Manager (Former Employee) – California – May 10, 2018
I loved the products I worked on while working in Expedia. However the pay and the benefit are not very good and at the same time the work / life balance is completed unbalanced. I do love the fast pace very much. I think you learn fastest when it's fast paced. Although Expedia's performance in recent years did not meet my expectation, if you want to learn certain skills, you can still consider Expedia to be a place to work for a year or two.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – April 30, 2018
I was recently at Expedia on a contract and had wonderful time while there. Culture, work life balance, and other perks made this a great place to work. I would recommend to anyone looking for a new challenge.
