Pros

IT is the revenue center, which allows great growth on the technology side

There's still some remnants of the dot-com era, which is holding them back.

Advice to Management

Acknowledge yourself as the industry leader you are.

    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 Management

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