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

    Pros

    Orbitz expects a lot from their employees, but they give a lot as well. The office environment is casual and fun as most people wear jeans and sweatshirts to work everyday. There are a lot of other amenities as well; ping pong tables in the break rooms, free soda and they have a very liberal vacation policy.

    Cons

    Orbitz is very competitive! You cannot expect to last long by just coasting at this company. They are competing in a fast-paced technology environment and their employees are some of the smartest people in the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would encourage management to focus on cross training individuals in their departments as emloyees have different strengths/weaknesses.

    Pros

    People, People, People! They are the reason that it is a great place to work. I am talking about co-workers not Senior leaders.

    Cons

    We need new senior level leadership in some of the areas we work in. Our growth is too small and I fear we may be a take over target.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know where to cut costs. You cannot cut your way to profitability.
