Cons

* compensation/bonuses are poor - not competitive

    I worked at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice location, well known brand. Very competitive industry, lots of smart folks to learn from. Pay is ok, though can be tough to move up.

    Cons

    The benefits need work. Compared to other .coms the benefits are quite poor. No 401k match first year in, 10 days paid time off, sub-par insurance, no personal package deliveries and to top it off a recent layoff in the past 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Things have improved (slowly) but morale is low, many more will leave unless things improve.


  2. "Good place for technologists"

    Too much bureaucracy... employees spend too much time on being able to do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Focusing on everything isn't really focusing...
