Very strict for the pay
Orbitz for Business Counselor (Current Employee), Seattle, WAOctober 9, 2014
Pros: work from home
Cons: for technology they really have stepped up to move forward with the timesl
A typical workday is you log in 10 min early so you available to take your first call. But, you can not log it the phone or sign into your time sheet until 3min prior to your shift start time.
You have varying shift with no consecutive 2 days off.
You have to know Apollo and Worldspan (Native) formats. They rarely use scripts.
Car / Hotels are hooked in Apollo and depending on account, air.

Fun place to work, innovative, great leadership, typical 9-5
Business Intelligence Intern (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 24, 2014
Pros: great mentors, good pay, good environment
Cons: at your desk all day.
I had a great mentor at Orbitz who taught me a lot. You spend all day at your desk, like most 9-5 jobs. The pay seemed like it was very competitive, though I only worked as an intern. There were a lot of people with families but there were also a good number of younger employees with social lives. The company felt big enough to be part of something greater and small enough to feel like you are actually contributing.

Analyst (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 27, 2013
Pros: free oatmeal
Cons: tough to be promoted within, lots of "lateral moves"
people are pretty laid back at orbitz. there is a lot that you might want to fix but ends up being fixed as a "workaround' as real fixes are too time consuming and difficult. best areas to work are "new" areas that get a lot of attention.

Great place to work, but career pathing not so good
Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 21, 2013
Overall, Orbitz has a fun culture and provides interesting work. The space is challenging and exciting. However, unlike big companies, there is very little career path help, and you need to make your own way.

Not a great place
Legal Department (Former Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 5, 2012
Pros: free pop
Cons: horrible environment
Probably the worst job experience I've ever had. Got thrown into job responsibilities that weren't disclosed and I wasn't qualified for from day one in the door. They seem to staff up big time then cut staff as soon as they have to make their numbers.

Company with great atmosphere and cultural values
Revenue Accountant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 29, 2012
This company has great values, and is very employee-friendly; flexibility was offered, and the work-life balance was remarkable. Managers were very helpful, and the department was very well-run, with an understanding of responsibilities but offering to assist others when individuals' duties were completed.
