I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide

Pros

Open atmosphere, telecommuting option, open to ideas, great HR and softskills training

Cons

Systems riddled with unnecessary complexities which can be easily taken out

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lack of business knowledge documentation just makes it hard for new joinees to provide optimal input towards solution. Wiki is just a tool but we need a good process to manage knowledge retention.

    Pros

    A highly collegial environment where you look forward to engaging with your co-workers. There are tons of interesting initiatives going on all the time - makes you feel proud to work for a company that is on the leading edge in its industry. There are loads of social activities - happy hours, holiday parties, and volunteer events, etc - if that's your thing. If not, you don't feel pressured to join.

    Cons

    While there are opportunities for professional development, the size of the company naturally limits the potential for upward mobility beyond a certain level. It's not to say that people don't get promoted -- they do - but in some areas of the company there are too few spots coveted by many people.

    Pros

    Work/life balance
    Benefits
    On site/Off site training opportunity
    Opportunities to work with multiple departments
    Employee morale
    Laid back office atmosphere, no dress code

    Cons

    Lots of homegrown software that takes time to troubleshoot
    Faced paced industry, priorities are constantly being shifted (often with no alert)
    Work hours can sometimes be long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more involved in the day to day activities of departments, often times questions are being asked on important issues that senior management seems to have no knowledge of. Make sure employees who are working above and beyond their positions are recognized.
