    Pros

    Fancy office
    Good Talent

    Cons

    Pressure environment
    Too agile to have any structure/process
    Too many unexpected changes
    Favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just making random changes doesn't show growth. Realizing the dynamics and making changes make sense.
    It's too much of a pressure environment.

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer in Gurgaon, Haryana

    I worked at Expedia full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pays good when compared to software companies based out of NCR.
    Work life balance is good if not great.

    Cons

    Very few people are technically sound.
    Poor hiring practices led to appointment of many folks from service based companies at senior designations who encouraged office politics & damned the work atmosphere.
    One time pay hike at joining might be given to few however year end pay hikes are really below average.

    Pros

    Friendly environment
    Flexible hours
    good pay
    Nice seniors
    overall its fine
    great company for freshers to learn

    Cons

    HR should keep in mind they are hiring engineers and not IAS/PCS candidates and should ask them accordingly.
    A bit of diplomacy is there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on HR training tell them higher quality engineers good on technical fields not someone who can change the world.
