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

Pros

Good compensation, fun atmosphere, flexible, great city, great people, feel valued, a chance to interact with senior leaders. I've really enjoyed working for Orbitz and have experience a high level of job satisfaction.

Cons

Gaining approval to move forward with a project can be difficult, more meetings than I'd prefer, economy has put a dent in the travel industry as a whole.

Advice to Management

Be open to sharing failures/areas of improvement with employees, not just successes and highlights. It's easy to tell when the outlook presented is a bit too sunny.

    Pros

    Orbitz is an innovative company with a great culture. There are a lot of opportunities to grow a career here and develop both personally and professionally; the company really supports learning and development. There are also many opportunities to connect with coworkers. With so many people in one building, it can be hard to get to know everyone, but there are regular activities to get people from different areas of the company together to interact and get to know one another. If you want to work with smart people and have fun while working on challenging assignments, this is the place to be. I mean, with a foosball table in the lunchroom, what's not to love?

    Cons

    The work is demanding and will challenge you on a daily basis. I don't consider that to be a con, but if you're looking for something easy where you can fly under the radar, Orbitz isn't for you.

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

    Pros

    It is rare you can work at a company that gets to build products for an industry (travel) that is changing as much as it has in the past few years. With the advent of mobile, consumers are traveling in totally different ways and Orbitz is a great place to apply cutting edge technology to these new opportunities. People at Orbitz are smart, very tech savvy, but approachable and willing to learn. Teams genuinely strive to do great work and make a difference in the space. From a ecommerce and mobile commerce perspective - nothing comes close in the Midwest in terms of a place to work that drives this many global transactions and scale.

    Cons

    The market is competitive and Orbitz hasn't been able yet to really hit its stride. This contrast is drawn sharper by recent competitive wins. Employees are fairly loyal and have been yearning to achieve a breakout year/performance that seems to be just beyond reach. The good news here is that people are genuinely interested in seeing the company and their fellow employees succeed and through their determination/savvy may eventually make it so.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus. Build unique and valuable products.
