Pros

- Cooperative, helpful coworkers
- Fast development cycle, engineers expected to know entire tech stack

Cons

- PMs aren't technically inclined, leading to confusion sometimes and them being out of touch of how long it takes to implement things
- Not much else actually

    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The company was better to work for when part of Expedia but there are few pros now.
    - If you like travel, it's a fun industry.
    - TripAdvisor tries really hard to recruit students and puts their best food forward for the summer interns with fun events and outings. It's a facade and it's not like that for the full time employees.

    Cons

    - Two thumbs down for senior management who runs the business in an unethical and abrasive manner
    - In reality, everyone, from junior to middle to senior management, is simply a puppet of the CEO
    - No focus on career development
    - Junior staff is cocky and is starting to mirror senior management's style of yelling and degrading others. These are kids who are 0-2 years out of school
    - Location. Newton?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending to be a small start up company who can move in a quick and agile way. Understand who we've become and where we're going. Also, if you want to hire talented engineers, why would you move further west from Newton? Probably because that's where senior management live. Expect a lot of attrition to happen when the office moves.
