    Pros

    Pay check and a warm place out of the cold during the winter

    Cons

    Pending sale of company has made the previously high energy, fun environment turn to a dark night in Zombie Land. Not a lot of fun to be around the office these days. Everyone is waiting for the other shoe to fall.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is. Quit telling us how wonderful we are and show it in our Bonus and Raises. Take some training classes in how to motivate your driect reports.

    Pros

    Flexibility of remote home office based positions, competitive compensation and benefits, attainable bonus structure paid quarterly, great colleagues to collaborate with.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency on direction of the company year after year, employees don't have much value to the SLT and nobody takes supplier concerns or suggestions into account.

    Pros

    A unique culture that allows for a laid-back, flat organization -- but at the same time appreciates & rewards hard-work, a positive attitude, and an ability to work at a fast pace. Also a very fair & respectful approach to work/life balance.

    Cons

    Very steep learning curve and little training to help along the way for new employees. The organization is also very lean, which makes for short-term challenges when someone changes roles or leaves the company. Also, depending on your role/area of the company, promotional growth could be minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Consider removing the week of vacation between x-mas & new year's and giving employees the flexibility to use those days as they need. Surprisingly limited PTO/vacation for a travel company. Also, the paternity/maternity leave policies are significantly behind other tech leaders in the U.S.

    Pros

    The people here are great! So smart and passionate about their work. It really makes the culture. It's not work hard, play hard because the company forces it, but because the employees actually enjoy the work they do here and leadership respects time away from the office. No day is the same - truly. After 3 years I can come in and still make significant changes to impact the company.

    Cons

    No real cons - Orbitz runs at lightning speed. If you are uncomfortable in a fast paced environment or not good with change - this is not the org for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Remember be as transparent as possible and don't forget the values which make Orbitz great - collaborative environment, lack of red tape/hierarchy, and the people

    Cons

    Relatively steep learning curve depending on your role within the company. Lack of training materials/courses Work at home is frowned upon

    Advice to Management

    I would highly suggest switching to a PTO system that combines vacation and sick days into one bucket. This gives more flexibility to employees who tend to not get sick very often. Most companies either have this type of plan already, or have plans to move towards that type of one bucket plan.
