Describe your most memorable Expedia moment.
I was on the flights team and at the end of the summer we had a party to celebrate the changes on the air team, and I was able to see the CEO dancing around with all the employees!

What's a typical day at Expedia like for you?
My team normally gets into the office around 9:30 a.m. During the mornings it's pretty quiet, and everyone is focused on work. Almost every day a group of the team will grab a bite to eat somewhere in downtown Bellevue. The afternoon is the best part – everyone is refueled and there are lots of conversations going on, mostly about work but we are not perfect and do get off topic. People always have good stories to tell, and of course there are the nerd gun fights to give our team a little break.

What's the best part about working here?
The people. The work. The results. The parties. 

What are three words you'd use to describe working here?
Exhilarating. Rewarding. Worth it.

Why did you choose to work at Expedia?
The people. Everyone that I talked to had nothing bad to say about the company, and always had a smile while working. Everyone works hard, but Expedia knows how to have a good time and lets the employees know when they have done great job.

    I have been working at Expedia full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Open culture!!
    Very technically sound management giving you loads of opportunities to learn and perform!!
    Company cares for you!!
    Nice food and facilities!!
    Good benefits and compensation!!!

    Cons

    Most of the senior management sits in US and hence at times, India operation may feel lack of guidance. However, focus is shifting, which is good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management team needs to increase focus on India operations, for which enhanced focus is visible now. More focus towards India center will continue to help emerge India center as a value adding delivery center.
