An Insider's view of Expedia Group

What's something quirky about your company?

Everyone is obsessed with travel…Really! No matter who you are working with or run into in the halls you somehow always land on travel, where you have been, where you want to go or what is the next trip you are planning. Talk about a company with passion!

In today's world, when you travel, you need things at your fingertips! Imagine you pull up your phone, click a few buttons, type some messages and get the answers to your travel needs quickly.

What are some things you learned at the company?

What got you here today, will not get you there tomorrow. I believe this applies both organizationally and professionally; in order to maintain success, you must continuously evolve, challenge yourself, and take learnings from your mistakes.
