Pros

Orbitz has a great company culture, with a largely "open door" policy with upper management. This provides one with plenty of opportunities to provide one's input towards the direction of the company.

Cons

Due to the nature of the products and services that Ortbiz provides, sometimes it is necessary for developers to provide support when things go wrong, event if it's at 2am.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although there may be guidelines for measuring performance, these should be also measured considering the personal goals of the individuals within the company.

    Pros

    Lot of interesting technologies to work with. Lots of opportunities for technical improvement and innovation. Relaxed culture that avoids micromanagement.

    Cons

    Long ramp up time in gaining knowledge of proprietary technology that is not reusable at other employers. Career growth seems to be biased towards time served. Particular teams are stuck doing routine work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reviews should inform an employee where he/she ranks within a role (eg 90% percent). Solution Architects should play a greater role with feature teams, touching base once a sprint to ensure technical designs are solid.
