    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very relaxed place to work - very open on flexible working - as I have a young family, that counts for a lot. There is a very dynamic leadership team who have a clear vision, and are able to inspire - not just in the US, but in Europe where I work. I have learned a lot in my tenure here and have the opportunity to travel to both Europe and the US.

    Cons

    HQ is in the US - so, working outside the mother ship has its limitations in terms of having ownership outside of marketing and product purchasing - it is more a question of having to influence other business stakeholders.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation and benefits does not compare well to our competitor set.

    I worked at Orbitz Worldwide for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked for several excellent content managers over a five-year span, remotely, and was provided with flexibility and many ways to approach the material, even with an in-house style guide and a definite content "voice."

    Cons

    The per-project pay was always reasonable, and sometimes exceptional, but it tended to bounce up and down at times, making it difficult to plan for expenses sometimes, as a freelancer.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward your people appropriately; this will allow for retention of genuine talent, and the return of loyal freelancers.
