    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

    Throw away Thinkpads. Get Macbook pros.
