    Pros

    * Office is conveniently located inside the Ogilvie train station and across the street from Union Station.
    * Casual dress code.
    * Company offers good health benefits

    Cons

    * Work life balance is not valued at Orbitz. As a technology company it is unfortunate that work from home policy is not instituted and frowned upon. Flex work schedule is difficult to work out. This is KEY for happy employees.
    * Too much focus on perception and not the end result.

    Advice to Management

    Value your long term employees! Orbitz has a complex infrastructure, and hiring and training new employees is not an easy task. It can take years for an employees to learn and master their area to become a subject matter expert.

  2. Great but no growth potential unless you live in Chicago
