Egencia is shit company imo! Pay is super low and 80% of the tech crowd which is Orbitz folks are not even averagely smart at Chicago and maybe France offices. Bellevue seems better because better market and hq maybe.
Sde2 and senior folks don’t take much ownership, company politics and people know it is slow but everyone either pretends to be happy or have reached their limit.
Anyone else had such experience especially new grads?
- Amazon hDDb11If you want better skilled coworkers go to a FAANG/M or a hot startup like uber that can pay as much as FAANG. With Expedia you get average talent and pay. But keep in mind that wlb is in most cases directly proportional to TC, so don’t come back to blind whining about wlb when you go to top tier companies
- Expedia HrSK42I recently left Expedia, 2015/2016 it was a great place to work. Pay was comparable to Microsoft at my level. A lot of top talent left for HomeAway after the acquisition - the rest dispersed across other big local tech companies.
Honestly the current CEO is a joke, company priorities have little to do with challenging top talent.
- How about work at Expedia but invest in FAANG so you get the upside. TC doesn't have to exclude non wage gains.
- Options, can give you plenty of leverage. If you really believe in growth of FAANG.
