Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Chicago, IL

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

Pros

1. The most tech savvy and agile based company. Strives to do the best thing technology and agile process wise.
2. Highly skilled and talented engineers and managers to learn a lot from.
3. Very good and real assesment of skills in the interview process which has a tech phone interview, weekend assignment, personal tech and behavioural interview. I liked the weekend coding assignment which is real test of the coding skills.

Cons

1. Travel business itself is not doing so great and there is too much competition for air business.
2. There is scope to make Compensation to be more competitive with the company's expectation from the employees and the tough interview process.
3. Advice to those who don't like technology: This is not the place.

Advice to Management

1. Compensation falls short of 5 to 10% and target for 75 percentile compensation range.

    Pros

    strong working colleagues, the potential of OWW and work life balance are the only reasons i've stuck around. OWW has so much potential to be a great place if mgmt would let go of old, business school philosophies and practices. pay is pretty good, but nothing exceptional. benefits are competitive for a company it's size.work environment is good except when you need some privacy or quiet. this is a place for people inherently accountable for their work.

    Cons

    can't quite figure out who gets promoted and why -- seems like the talent usually is not promoted, rather the talkers. most managers are not capable, rather have strong underlings creating a sense of managerial accomplishment. learning and growth...you're on your own. administratively, place is a wreck. duplicate people, systems, etc...costs could be cut in half.

    Advice to Management

    time for something bold - many employees are wondering how much longer leaders have with the stock price down YOY for many years. focus on frequency such as larger corp clients with routine travelers rather than trying to build awesome vacation packages (that book slowly or decline in today's down economies).
