    Pros

    The people really make this a fantastic company to work for. The work itself is also constantly evolving and done at a quick pace which I love. Lots of opportunities to contribute and see the impact of your work.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities are surprising given the length of time the interviewing process takes.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more thoughtful job families so that valuable contributors have opportunities over time.

    Pros

    Fantastic group of smart people. Interested in solving problems for their consumers, but sometimes a bit too A/B focused for revenue gains. Trip continues to invest, take risk, and grow their risk. For a software engineer - great opportunity to learn how a consumer facing site with a huge traffic base operates. Ownership throughout the stack, fast iterative cycles, and interesting technical problems to be solved.

    Cons

    TripAdvisor has been going through internal engineering struggles as it deals with code base issues, a very tight job market, friction between engineering and product, and a lack of career opportunities. That is all changing as the organization recognizes the need to make changes and is unafraid to air the problems publicly and figure out solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication going. Commit to the changes necessary to make the engineering group that much better.

    Pros

    I have been working for tripadvior as a sales exective for last 2 years. It is good place to learn as there are lots of smart colleagues around. The management emphasizes on moving fast as the business environment is rapidly changing.

    Cons

    The company is global leader in travel industry, however the brand awareness is not so high in my country. Most people still don't know about tripadvisor yet.

    Advice to Management

    Need to localize the product in order to satisfy the needs of each market.
