    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Very positive work environment, filled with talented and friendly people. You have the ability to truly make a difference at Orbitz, and don't feel as though you are just a number. Work/Life balance is great and very flexible (work from home if needed). The pay and benefits are very competitive, plus travel perks!

    Cons

    Consider adding summer hours and offering a little more vacation time to new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more accessible to the general employee population. It would be nice to see senior management interact more with everyone in the Chicago office.
