    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tons of exposure to many different types of technologies, healthy workplace atmosphere with a large majority of coworkers and immediate managers being very transparent. Workplace social activities were always entertaining, even if just going for the beer. Very easy to leave work at work.

    Cons

    Upper management gives off a vibe as if they are not telling you everything, especially in regards to the Expedia takeover, which, also lead to a lack of direction in day to day work

    Advice to Management

    Immediate managers do a great job, but beyond, more direct involvement would help bring goals into perspective for both sides.

    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been at Orbitz for a year and find it to be a great company to be a part of. Orbitz has a wonderful company culture where employees work hard and play harder. I have the opportunity to work under a great manager where the training and knowledge gained has benefited me and my career growth.

    Cons

    I can not really say anything here other than the recent merger has put all employees jobs at risk.

    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are just super friendly and helpful to one another. Innovative spirit all around despite long-lost startup status.

    Cons

    Too bad it is getting sucked into the big bureaucratic corporate void that is Expedia

    Advice to Management

    Expedia leadership to take over the company aren't doing much to retain the Orbitz talents. The losses will be someone else's gains

    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart, friendly staff. Great record of LGBT inclusiveness and supporting the community. Generous salaries and time off. Lots of flexibility and autonomy.

    Cons

    Communications are sometimes lacking; very much a "yes" culture, with employees avoiding confrontation or disagreement. Senior leadership team not very accessible.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully Orbitz will be able to maintain the good parts of its culture after absorption into Expedia. I think we have a lot to learn from Expedia, and it could be what it takes to bring us from good to great.
