Joined Orbitz India a year back. Journey so far has been really great. Best thing about Orbitz is it has very casual and rewarding place Have often found that people are quite friendly and approachable at all levels. The mid year and year end review/evaluation system is very smooth and Transparent. Lots to do beyond regular work. Overall quite satisfied with Orbitz. Looking forward to see Orbitz grow and grow along with it.
Its not a great place to follow dreams, pursue personal interests, be who I am as there are challenges in terms IT infra support. There is lot of Regional differences in IT policies.

Orbitz is a technology company with great Tech and business vision. You get to work with great minds who have contributed to open source, written books and best of all willing to share their knowledge with everyone. Hackathon, Meeetups, brown bags are few of the geeky stuff we do here.
We might not be a very large company but we always compete with the likes of Google, Amazon, LinkedIn and other companies for talent and a spot at the top 10 best places to work for :-)1Orbitz Worldwide Response10y
‘Happy cows give healthy milk’… Not sure we have ever used that phrase in official company communications, but maybe we should! It underscores our philosophy that we need to provide an unparalleled work environment in order to attract and retain the best talent – and you are a perfect example of this, considering you have been with the company for eight years. Thank you for the positive feedback, we will absolutely continue to keep our focus on the employees.

There are no limits to what you can achieve in this organization. I feel highly privileged to have started my career at Orbitz Worldwide. Some of the Pros: - A technology driven company which always keeps its technology at par with the latest stuff in the market. - Very flexible work timings, and hence there is great work-life balance. - Really easy to communicate with the management and with the senior level engineers. - The eagerness of the management to cooperate with you to solve any issues. - Good benefits provided.
No challenges have been faced so far.

One of the best places in India for e-commerce techies and thinkers. Lots of freedom for developers to play around latest tech stuff along with good work life balance.
Nothing much so far. Orbitz is in beginning stage in India. You may sometimes find that few things are not order as you expect .. but this will be fixed soon hopefully.Orbitz Worldwide Response10y

Was working with a good company before, Orbitz didn't disappoint me for making a job switch. 1. Good work life balance 2. Well established company working in a start up mode. 3. Great room for innovation 4. Work in cutting edge technologies 5. Happening atmosphere, never dull
1. Things in Orbitz India are not streamlined yet (since it's been less than 2 years the operations started).2

Good benefits, flexibility especially after the takeover by Expedia
Bad management after the take over especially the BLR office. One needs to think twice with such people if its worth the job. People are dead scared to speak up honestly
