    I worked at Orbitz Worldwide

    Pros

    I worked in operations, and it was an incredibly target-rich environment with lots of problems to solve.

    Cons

    Lack of good leadership resulted in strategic priorities getting ignored in favor of tactical fire-fighting. Luckily, lots has changed since they were bought by Expedia, so it's possible things are a lot better... they are at least different.

        Pros

        Somewhat positive environment, excellent perks/benefits.

        Cons

        Lacking with bonuses and raises. Sometimes promotions are given to those that do not have the proper skill set or experience for their current position. Promotions are sometimes given with no pay raise, just a different title and additional responsibilities.

        Always working on the leading edge in tech, analytics, marketing, etc.

        Chicago went from being the heart of the company to a satellite office as part of Expedia. Expedia is a good company, but the pulse of the office changed.

        Cons

        Some issues prior to acquisition owing to information silos and lack of complete organization/consistency in the data and IT systems .. access to applications was limited and difficult to get Lot of upheaval post the acquisition...increased politics, micro management and Orbitz office sort of degraded to "remote" office of Expedia in Chicago Certain director level execs and project managers extremely mean to...

        Make the middle managers and directors more accountable so that they don't get away with being unprofessional /less competent and get promoted despite creating a harsh work environment
