Expedia, Inc. is one of the world’s leading travel companies, with an extensive brand portfolio that includes some of the world’s most trusted online travel brands.
We want to own and power the best travel brands in the world. We want our brands to be independent, innovative, fast. We want them relentlessly focused on what drives value for their customers.
We are aggressive. We will grow and take share from our competitors. Our primary growth drivers will be technology and product innovation, customer loyalty, global expansion, and channel penetration.
Together as a family our competitive advantages are:
It’s time to pack! We live and breathe travel at work and our employees’ enjoy it personally as well. Walk around our offices and you’ll hear stories of trips being planned and tales of new cities discovered. We love our employees thirst for travel and offer incredible discounts to help support their global explorations and adventures.
No performance ratings
You’re more than just a number. At Expedia we’re focused on increasing the potential of our employees. We scrapped performance ratings and reinvented our performance management program to focus on providing employees with ongoing feedback. The take away? We provide you with more communication and tools to out-perform what you thought possible.
We believe in health and wellness and provide our employees with a comprehensive program to support their personal goals. Our well-being initiative offers information, resources and tools to create and maintain a well-balanced physical and mental lifestyle. go! celebrates all opportunities to be active and feel our best.
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.
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.
Management seems to actively plot against their employees
Peer to peer, teamwork is functional.
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.
