Reviews for Expedia Group

Reviews - What employees say

3.94 Employees say
0.00 Applicants say

Company Culture

Not much of a company culture, as a vendor I can’t speak to much of this because I haven’t seen much. Some teams do small events after work but not much else.

Support from management

Employees are not involved enough in the decision process made by leadership teams. Human capita isn’t tapped enough for new ideas and process improvement ideas.

Teamwork

Great teamwork within my own team, across the company and departments there is a lot of room for improvement.

Freedom to work independently

Very structured work.

Internal Communication

A lot of teams do not know what others do. There isn’t much cross-company communication about high-impact projects and changes made that affect other people’s work. Usually have to find out after-the-fact.

Gender Equality

A lot of room for improvement, leadership team includes very few women and few are in high-level leadership roles.

Career Development

Few opportunities for vendors other than being there and gaining some experience.

Overall compensation for your work

Vendors are paid about 2/3 of what their agencies charge Expedia for their time.

Office / Work Environment

Good for now, the new campus has odd ideas - like no desk personalization, and putting your mouse and keyboard in a locker each day. Neighborhoods for teams and no assigned desks or spaces. Mixture of ergonomic and conference style desks in open areas for people to work and it is first come first serve.

Environmental Friendliness

Expedia isn’t doing enough to improve its environmental footprint, there will be some solar panels on the new Seattle HQ but that’s it. Insufficient carpool, shuttle and commute options, and none at all for vendors.

Work-Life Balance

Work stays at work very well at Expedia but commute times eat into personal time with few options given for people outside Bellevue. No access to company commute programs for vendors.

Job Security

Rare that vendors can get extensions to contracts.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very diverse, mostly inclusive, a lot of improvement needed to have more women in leadership roles.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Increase diversity and gender equality with women in leadership roles.
  • Offer commute options to vendors and shuttles from more than just Bellevue to Seattle and within Seattle to the campus.
  • Include all employees in decision making process, have surveys with open-ended answers not funneled into multiple choice questions.
  • Increase transparency across teams and more collaboration and communication regarding changes that will impact multiple teams.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Unlimited PTO is desired. Not having to log time in a tracking system would be nice.

What I like about the company

The company has many of the perks of any software company, but they care for the employees. Health and wellness is important. They have a wonderful holiday party. We touch peoples lives in the thing they love to do most - travel!

What I dislike about the company

Too much of the leadership was pulled within. They do a great job at promoting, but they don't have as much experience as hiring external candidates.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The only emprovements I would make would be to end the shift bids so employees can set there schedules perminatly not just 3-6 months at a time

What I like about the company

I got pregnant last year and got put on bed rest just 6 months along. I had 80% pay up until I had the baby so for three months. Then I had 100% pay for eight weeks. After that they offer 12 weeks bonding time for anyone that had a baby or even adopted a child that you can take anytime with in your first year of having that child with 100%pay. I also got a 1000 dollar bounes check just to help out with expenses.

What I dislike about the company

I dont like the shift bids. each department bids on there shift and it goes off of sinority and work performance. so if you are a newer employee you will most likly get the later shifts that no one wants
