Going downhill after the IPO

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ConsPolitics
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 Senior ManagementShow some respect for the people who do the work. Be more accepting of different approaches.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
