The Expedia Workplace

What we offer

What is special about working for us?

At Expedia we believe in empowering our employees to connect with fellow colleagues who have the same interests and passions they do. From Women, LGBT, and Military/ Veteran focused affinity groups, to sustainability and volunteering causes, we support our employee’s passions and diversity around the world. You’ll find us recruiting at national conferences sponsored by diversity groups such as SWE (Society of Women Engineers), NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers), SHPE (National Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers).

We’re inclusive and that’s never going to change. Whatever your culture, your background or your way of life, we have a rewarding career in store for you.

How would we describe the company culture?

We Believe in Being Different: We seek new ideas, different ways of thinking, diverse backgrounds and approaches, because averages can lie and sameness is dangerous. Because of this belief, our norms aren’t rules or universal at all corners of our company. But they are important to our identity and how we work together. Like our company, these norms will evolve.

We Lead Humbly: Our leaders serve their teams. None of us has all of the answers, but we are curious and we are always looking to learn. Though our leaders take their responsibilities to our business and their teams incredibly seriously, they never take themselves too seriously.

We are Transparent: We communicate openly and honestly, at all levels, upwards, sideways and downwards. We surface difficult issues quickly, we act, we learn.

We Organize for Speed: We seek to gather data as fast as possible, and move. Speed allows us to make mistakes and constantly improve.

We Believe in the Scientific Method: Everyone’s ideas are equal in the face of hard data. We use data to guide but not define our actions.

We Act as One Team: We look to optimize for the greater good, not just our own, or even our own teams’ interests. We are actively interested in the success of others.

Reviews for Expedia, Inc

Reviews - What employees say

3.70 Employees say
0.00 Applicants say

Support from management

Management seems to actively plot against their employees

Teamwork

Peer to peer, teamwork is functional.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management needs to be completely overhauled. Those in a position of power need to be held accountable and HR needs to take action when complaints are lodged. Sensitivity training would be beneficial.

What I like about the company

The job itself is great, you get to experience things most people either won’t or will have to save up most of their lives to afford. The people you work side by side with are great.

Overall compensation for your work

relatively low pay but good bennies

Work-Life Balance

excellent work life balance

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pick a direction and stick with it.

What I like about the company

Great work/life balance. Good benefits.

What I dislike about the company

Constant re-orgs, difficult to achieve any sort of "vision" when your manager changes twice a year. Expedia always seems to think they on the verge of a huge breakthrough... as soon as we clean up this old tech stack and consolidate the two codebases... I have heard this goal monthly for the past 5.5 years.

Company Culture

They hire via the buddy system not competence

Support from management

you change managers every 6 months

Teamwork

nobody works together outside their teams

Freedom to work independently

nobody knows what anyone is doing just lets it run itself

Job Security

CEO is so mad Clinton lost is moving jobs outside the US as company priority

Handicapped Accessibility

handicap doors are often locked

Workplace Safety

Workplace safety is nominal
