Pros

I worked at Orbitz for a number of years in the early 2000's and recently rejoined to find the work as vastly updated to current ecommerce techniques and strategies.

Cons

While being colocated is a major plus over my previous employer, there are quite alot of meetings but I would rather have that than not being able to work directly with project participants or remotely with them.

Advice to Management

While there is plenty of interesting work to go around, seems like we should be focusing on items that move the needle more in terms of revenue.

    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.

    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.
