    I worked at Expedia Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay packages (extraordinary high as compared to industry standards), free meal services, free cab services, travel benefits, medical benefits.

    Cons

    Offlate since last 1 year, company's management has changed, starting from top shots to people working at operational level. Looks like company has taken all new paths to achieve success as compared to its stragies followed until 2017 and there seems to be no clear strategy in place finally. The successful CEO (Dara K.) moved out and the new leadership is yet to bring goods. Companys stock price is dropping by some margin everyday. From 150s its now $111 and so running losses. Its not just this, bur the Company havent been able to respect talented people who worked with complete commitment, dedication and focus for all those past years. Infact, they showed them the exit route. They should look to re-hire brilliant minds back in all the departments. There is no work ethics. People are more interested in playing political games instead of just focussing on work. People making alliances to cause downfall of others. There is a lot of work to be done to bring the company back to top otherwise downfall is inevitable. SO think twice thrice before you join Expedia today and measure pros/cons carefully. I have worked there so I wish well for the Organisation and to you.

    Advice to Management

    With more power you have more responsibility, firing people firing talented people especially when they are at helm of their careers is not right is any what way and there is no justification for that unless the company itself goes bankrupt or close down and it simply doesnt work in India. Are they doing any aftermath of it, thinking of adverse consequences it could habe or they simply just forget. Leadership (King & Ministers like in old days) should take care of their subjects in all ways and at all times.
    Reduce costs at all levels - there is a whole lot of foreign tours by folks at management level with no fruits, stop the unnecessary travel as people are using it for their own personal leisure.
    Analyse from Top to bottom - match the KRAs and final deliverables and this work should be done at all level in parallel.
    Hire right skills - There are many at different management positions who only know how to delegate but never have really worked. Its not always just about delegation but also to work with the team.
    There are many things to talk about but I want to stop here and leave upto the Sr. management to think deep and chalk out the plans to ensure Expedia's ship does not drown. Thank you.
