My friend got this offer with 12% increment from current salary.

145k - 30k/20k joining bonus - 40k RSU (0/33/33/33)

12% target bonus

Any opinions or other benefits to consider. How’s WLB and quality of work? Is Expedia worth for next 2-5 years to stay?

      Except forced diversity everything sounds good.

      50% diversity is not representative, which seems like they might be sexist in their hiring practices.

      To them the ends justify the means.. unethical.

    Very high offer for SDE2.
    Lot of Seniors make less than that.

      Wow. Are you serious or sarcastic?

      I am a Senior and I make less than that.
      I know other seniors who make less than that.

      No, they’re not sarcastic. On the topic of promotions...Expedia likes to stew people in the same role, it’s pretty hard to get promoted, especially within a year-two. Realistically , you’re looking at minimum of 2.5 years and then some.

    Seems low for Seattle, even by MSFT standards.

      I disagree, base salary is right I have seen similar salaries from Amazon and Microsoft

      I got a pretty similar deal for SDE2 at MSFT, albeit with relocation and signing bonus.

    I heard of layoffs in Expedia, is that true?

      Layoffs are in data centers because we are moving to the cloud

      Then why laying off? It should be reverse as more work would be there initially? Who is going to handle operations during this migration?
      Mar 31, 2018
    • Expedia Thisismark
      Yes they didn’t think this through.

    I got very similar offer. I also had competing offers. I was told that these numbers are offered 1% of SDE2s and it is the max they could offer. No room for further negotiations.

      When and Which division you joined and how many years of experience?

      How’re things looking there?

      Things are depends on team/org and your expectations. If your friend is at early stages of his/her career, Expedia offers limited learning opportunities (comparing to FANG). It is not a tech company but it is trying to be a tech company. Compensation used to be terribly bad but Expedia is trying to improve. WLB is slowly going away as more services are deployed to AWS but it is comparingly much better than FANG. Benefits are pretty good (much better than Amazon and most tech companies)...

      OP
      How much senior makes at Expedia? If promotion happens in 1 year or so, would it be good base increase? How difficult is to promoted to senior level at Expedia?

    • Expedia xwuR43
      Super hard to be promoted, especially within a year is a pipe dream! Unless of course you might be super political and can influence your leadership team with some magic potion!

      Yep. Only 40K for 4 years. I was surprised too.

    I would say although a good offer by Expedia standards be very cautious. They are cutting some budgets across the board regarding training and using natural attrition to get $$$ to cover costs over the next few qtrs. Is the role within BEX or ECP?

    High for expe standards, pretty low by market standards. Expe stock is also trending downwards. Last 2 quarters were a disaster

    Does RSU vest monthly after the 1year cliff?
