    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast moving/industry changing so lots of untapped opportuniities. Company embrasses creativity. Autonomy....act as a GM of my product/area. Learn something new every day. Lots of smart people. Younger company. Good location. Ability to work from home (in some departments). Good access to SLT

    Cons

    Too many silos. To get a new initiative off the ground is very difficult since you need to talk to so many different departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break down silos

    Pros

    Excellent team collaboration. Very open to new ideas and has a development strategy to support these ideas. Flexibility - you work hard but are not micro managed and have flexible schedule as needed. Great leadership throughout the organization!

    Cons

    So far there are little downsides, as with every organization there is room for improvement.

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

    Pros

    Company culture is great; very laid-back and casual. The people are really smart and fun; I've made a few friends working here. Flexible work schedule and work-from-home options. Focus more on results than where/when the work is done.

    Cons

    Work load can be overwhelming and the company can be slow to add headcount. Communications between departments could be better. Sometimes things end up being fires because a communication was missed; should bring all relevant parties in on meetings/projects sooner.

    Pros

    Lots of smart people in one place. My colleagues at Orbitz are a hard-working, fun group of people who embrace change and are always looking for a better way to do things. There are lots of opportunities to move up within departments and diagonally upwards through other departments. This firm embraces cross-pollenization of people, approaches, and ideas. Things move quickly, which keeps the job interesting.

    Cons

    Sometimes the pace can be stressful.

    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people; lots of collaboration within teams and across the company in general; conveniently located in the Ogilvie transportation center which is great whether you live in Chicago or in the suburbs, because the Metra trains arrive in the building downstairs; fun corporate culture that promotes social events among coworkers and provides unique perks such as an employee travel discount

    Cons

    Occasionally management takes too long to make decisions, thereby wasting time that could be better spent simply attacking the problem at hand

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should avoid isolating themselves in the "SLT bubble," because that leads to a skewed perspective not shared by the vast majority of employees. Furthermore, be open and honest when communicating to employees. Whether the message is good, bad or indifferent, employees always appreciate the unvarnished truth.
