I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (more than an year)

Pros

OWW has a very laid back and casual environment. We are able to work hard and play hard while enjoying a great deal of benefits.

Cons

Vacation time benefits need to be addressed as they are not as competitive as other technology companies. Management reorganizations seem to be a bit too frequent. Promotions can sometimes take a bit longer than necessary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay needs to be balanced for current or longer term employees especially when they move jobs. Promotions that happen during end of year reviews cause lower compensation for the promotion.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and continuously improve!

    Current Employee - Feature Team Lead in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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