Pros

It is rare you can work at a company that gets to build products for an industry (travel) that is changing as much as it has in the past few years. With the advent of mobile, consumers are traveling in totally different ways and Orbitz is a great place to apply cutting edge technology to these new opportunities. People at Orbitz are smart, very tech savvy, but approachable and willing to learn. Teams genuinely strive to do great work and make a difference in the space. From a ecommerce and mobile commerce perspective - nothing comes close in the Midwest in terms of a place to work that drives this many global transactions and scale.

Cons

The market is competitive and Orbitz hasn't been able yet to really hit its stride. This contrast is drawn sharper by recent competitive wins. Employees are fairly loyal and have been yearning to achieve a breakout year/performance that seems to be just beyond reach. The good news here is that people are genuinely interested in seeing the company and their fellow employees succeed and through their determination/savvy may eventually make it so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the focus. Build unique and valuable products.

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

    Pros

    Hard work pays off. Orbitz has yet to disappoint me in terms of offering me more responsibility and opportunities to grow. I feel that my boss and the leadership team are invested in me. There are a lot of passionate people at this company. Passionate about the work we do, about technology, about helping other people. The people are another big part of the reason that I have stayed here.

    Cons

    We try to do too much. Being a full service OTA with numerous brands makes it difficult to focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve benefits to be more competitive with technology companies out west and back east.
