Interesting technology and plenty of growth opportunity

Director (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsThe open and collaborative working environment couldn't be better. Everyone looks to help each other succeed in their jobs and displays a positive attitude.

Orbitz has a heavy focus on technology and attract top talent. When you work with so many talented people, you can't help but constantly learn from them. There is a constant drive to innovate everything from website/customer features to small process improvements.

ConsWith so much focus on innovation and new features some projects get done halfway. This leads to unneeded complexity and long standing technical debt. Solving some of these complex problems can be very rewarding, but frustrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to support the career growth in the way that you do today, it's great.
Set clear goals for addressing technical debt and give them equal priority to product goals. This will ultimately help deliver products faster and more efficiently.
Plot a path to more quickly pay down the company's debt. Available cash would give Orbitz the ability to make larger strategic moves and take market share from competitors.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
