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

    Pros

    -Great benefits (Travel reimbursement, $700 for gym memberships, etc.)
    -Travel is a fun industry

    Cons

    -Expedia acquisition of the company has dramatically changed the culture for the worse.
    -Company claims to care about developing women and then put a guy in charge who addresses women as "honey" and talks about how "pretty" various women are...he has been at Expedia for 15+ years so clearly Expedia finds this behavior acceptable
    -Most people are job searching
    -Chicago is now a "satellite" office which means there is limited career growth

    Advice to Management

    Instead of telling us how great Expedia is, actually show us in how you act, the people you put in charge, etc. I would expect high turn over in the business group given lack of leadership and treatment of women.

    I have been working at Orbitz Worldwide (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Orbitz was a great place to work, a thriving culture, a real community of smart people who loved what they worked on.

    Cons

    Since the Expedia acquisition, it's unknown how this "remote" office will get received by EXPE HQ; the ramp up has been shaky at best and some people haven't been given the autonomy that they once thrived on at Orbitz. Career growth is unknown as well.

    Advice to Management

    Take some pointers from folks about on-boarding and ramping people up, I think this has been an after thought...

    Pros

    Great company with casual atmosphere for in office employees. You were allowed to create projects and out of the box thinking was encouraged.

    Cons

    Department restructuring was the start of downfall for my department. Expedia buyout pretty much eliminated the need for our position and department.

    I worked at Orbitz Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Used to be a great company to work for until the expedia acquisition.

    Cons

    It got bad right after the deal was announced and kept going down. From what I read here and from talking to ex colleagues still there, things have taken a turn for the worse. The incident reported in one of the reviews about a senior leader calling women "honey" and saying they are good to look just blew my mind. That would not happen in the old Orbitz and if it did happen it would never be tolerated no matter how senior the leader is. Shameful!

    Advice to Management

    Too late for that.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Pay was good for a recent college grad.

    Cons

    I felt like the company was more about "images" then actual work performance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to make a person change there personality, and work to help them be better as is.
