Pros

Travel is dynamic, data centric which creates really interesting work. Company is not too big and not too small... Kind of like baby bears bed - not too hard and not too soft but just right.

Cons

Company future - they are a very small player vs. Expedia and Priceline / Booking

Advice to ManagementAdvice

do something aggressive. you need a game changer in order to take advantage of your small size.

    Pros

    Always thought before joining.. "After all, it is just a travel agency website. Why on earth do they have so many people working?" Came here and realized how stupid that thought was. Here, people are working on everything from big data to SEO to optimized caching. Lots of stuff to learn and explore. Great work culture. Happy that I joined Orbitz

    Cons

    Even though there are a lot of stuff going on, the company culture is not "technology dominated". Non-engineers > Engineers.

    Chicago has awesome commuting options. But Orbitz provide no transit benefits. It won't cost much to give CTA/Metra/parking pass to the employees. But they don't provide any. (At least share the cost)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Challenging work but a great work/life balance. Lots of people have been at the company for 5-10 years, which indicates how much they enjoy it. Conveniently located in the West Loop.

    Cons

    At times, management can be selective in their communication of key information.
