Orbitz in a nutshell

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Software Developer  in  Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Software Developer in Chicago, IL

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Love the fast paced environment. Decisions are made quickly and employees are encourage to innovate and act on their ideas. Friendly culture, great downtown office location with a cool environment (encourage work hard/play hard motto) with good travel perks and other benefits.

    Cons

    Benefits are very good for a small company, but should look at an alternate vacation policy given that it is a travel company.
