I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Soho Square location with roof terrace
Social committee who try to get engagement amongst people
Multi-cultural staff
Great product in marketplace

Cons

Newton power struggle to maintain control across a 'global company'
Internal politics
Pathetic HR leadership in Newton
No career growth pathways

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Foster more team work and spirit amongst employees - Newton is a morgue and london will head the same way soon too.

    Pros

    GREAT food
    Smart, talented people to work with
    Good compensation
    Very profitable, popular brand
    Looks good on your resume

    Cons

    Politics
    Turf battles between departments
    Discourages innovation, runs like a factory
    Blame-game culture, caste system
    Executives have big egos, total job security, huge bonuses - regardless of ability
    Little respect for levels below VP - regular accusations of incompetence. Senior tech people seem to get fired regularly
    Few opportunities for growth or promotion
    HR is impotent

    As a place to work, TripAdvisor has lost its appeal, especially since the split from Expedia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some respect for the people who do the work. Be more accepting of different approaches.
