Orbitz Worldwide Supports Work/Life Balance

Senior Oracle Database Administrator (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsOrbitz is a company that understands that people have situations in life that in some cases may cause the employee to need a non-tradational method of continueing to complete thier work at Orbitz.
In several situations I have seen Orbitz support thier employees by offering flexible work hours and if needed the ability to work remotely.
Employees are grateful for the flexibility and the generousity of the company.
Productivity appears to increase for most people that are telecommuting.

ConsIn some cases, certain individuals did not do well in working remotely.

Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps as a cost savings, it may be beneficial to see if offering tele-commuting to the workforce as a more standard model, will pay off in spades for the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
