    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.

    Pros

    Superman Technology folks around. Good work life balance. Great benefits on top of competitive compensation. You have ample opportunity to grow yourself into different roles. The company's Leadership has a vision and the ways to achieve it. Flexibility given around is awesome. In India, we observe 12 public holidays and 40 other different kind of paid leaves... that makes the count to 52 offs in a year (that's more like a 4 day working culture :):) )

    Cons

    We're too agile for anyone to get settled once they join. You have loads of complex problem and challenges come across your on your day to day work, but it gives you an opportunity to put your brain into it and learn from it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good job. A little more attention to the APAC region in terms of rewards and recognition would add loads of boost up to our morale (it doesn't mean at all that we're not motivated at the moment).

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
