    Pros

    Generally a good place to work.
    Decent benefits, casual dress code, and a laid-back culture.
    Monthly happy hours with beer and wine.

    Cons

    In some groups it was extremely difficult to get promoted and/or move on to other jobs within the company.
    Some managers and directors played favorites.
    Work at home policies were inconsistent, some teams allowed it while others did not.
    However - things may be different now since the company was acquired early this year.

    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Working for Orbitz for Business feels like a family. The work/life balance is excellent. My manager is always there for me and always ensures my needs are met. My immediate teammates are also my friends.

    Cons

    There really aren't too many cons, other than to say that sometimes technology releases that affect end users aren't fully tested causing issues for those end users

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to be open and honest with us about the state of the company currently and in the future as it fosters a better culture
