    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

    I worked at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Before the merge with Expedia, the pros included; leadership team, enviroment, flexibility, talented people ...

    Cons

    After Expedia´s acquisition, most Orbitz employees had to leave, ending the Orbitz Era. Its a shame that Expeda did not take advantage of many talented people.

    Pros

    Working for Orbitz was an amazing experience. Very inclusive and great work life balance

    Pros

    A lot of very talented and smart people, an entrepreneurial atmosphere and the ability to make an impact and see the result of your work.

    Cons

    Entrepreneurial atmosphere often led to duplicate efforts or inefficiency. Often, ideas were duplicated that may have been tried many months or even years prior. While things move fast, they aren't always documented for posterity.

    I worked at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All of the teams I worked with with were solution-oriented, creative, and entrepreneurial.

    Cons

    For a tech company that sold travel, we needed more travelers among us -- if only to better inform the products and our decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more hack-a-thons and open offices in Austin/SFO/etc. to attract top talent
