I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (More than a 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 Management

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.

    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time

    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.
