    No opinion of CEO

    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.
