      Pros

      OWW before the acquisition was a fantastic place to work in Chicago Fun, excellent work life balance, good work, intellectually smart co-workers and co-operative team members Post acquisition by Expedia, pros were new challenging opportunities, great perks,

      Cons

      Some issues prior to acquisition owing to information silos and lack of complete organization/consistency in the data and IT systems .. access to applications was limited and difficult to get Lot of upheaval post the acquisition...increased politics, micro management and Orbitz office sort of degraded to "remote" office of Expedia in Chicago Certain director level execs and project managers extremely mean to work with ...did not have any accountability to senior leadership for the way they managed their teams....lot of micro management by team leaders who lack technical knowledge and business acumen... not at all a friendly work environment

      Best Place to work in Chicago

      Pros

      Great work-life balance, competitive salaries, challenging work environment, international organization, lots of opportunities to move around within the company. The company always made strides to better itself, which made it a great place to work.

      Cons

      For a medium sized company there were more politics than I would have expected. There were occasions during my tenure that management was not in tune with the rest of the staff.

      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

      Pros

      Challenging work and many talented individuals. Lots of collaboration. Flexible work schedules for many groups.

      Cons

      Focus was a bit erratic at times. Work-life balance was non-existent for some departments while others were successful. Too many meetings.

      Pros

      Great work life balance, good coworkers and internal opportunities

      Still a great place to work post-merger

      Pros

      The work is interesting, with a lot of freedom. Upper management understands the competency of the tech talent acquired and directs the parent office to learn from us. Work life balance is great, huge amount of PTO, above average salaries.

      Cons

      The transition has been rough, but I think the toughest part is over. Good talent jumped ship in frustration. Parts of the parent office is not yet used to having remote employees so the new dynamic is a WIP.

      Pros

      Great place to work! The work life balance is incredible and upper management is very friendly and willing to help. The culture is very fun and relaxed.

      Cons

      I found that there was not a whole lot of room to move around. I did not see the growth opportunities that I was looking for. Not many cons other than that!
