    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.
