So much to do in a Travel company

Software Engineer I (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time for less than a year

ProsAlways 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

ConsEven 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 Senior ManagementThrow away Thinkpads. Get Macbook pros.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
