Pros

Fast paced environment full of A players. Employees get lots of opportunities to innovate. It's the best hybrid of technology company and startup with a strong culture of "doing the right thing".

Cons

Sometimes we try to do too many things instead of focusing on a subset of the most important. Accountability is harder than it should be.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work and continuously improve!

    Pros

    Perfect balance of technology and business. Always on the fore-front on providing cutting edge web-technology. Gives enough encouragement and motivation to innovate and learn. Business is moving in right direction incorporating the latest Social and mobile trends

    Cons

    Even though business and product are moving in right direction, they are still not able to achieve the goals. Need more clear vision to become leader and not the follower. Innovate and capture untapped potential and get first-mover advantage

    Advice to Management

    Please incorporate a long-term strategy to make orbitz the disruptive force in the OTA space.

    Pros

    A decent work life balance with opportunity to learn a new domain. There is a lot of potential for innovation if upper management gets out of the way. There are still some smart, hardworking people in the trenches.

    Cons

    Most of upper management is terrible and no longer understands or cares how most of the software works and what measures are needed to improve operations. It seems like most of the effort is geared towards maintenance and "keeping the lights on". Little effort is made to recognize or reward talented employees who try to make a difference and thus most of them leave.

    Advice to Management

    Resign and let the board of directors replace you so the company has focus and understands what needs to be done. It seems like most of the talented developers, analysts, and operations employees have already departed.
