Former Employee - Software Engineer in Newton, MA

I worked at TripAdvisor full-time for more than a year

Pros

As an engineer I actually enjoyed the requirement for all code to be peer reviewed. You can learn faster and you know that everything going out the door is quality work. The benefits package is excellent. I loved the recreational travel reimbursement.

Cons

The only con would be that there is no longer a dedicated UI team. Each engineer is responsible for their own UI with varying results. My understanding is they broke up the UI team a few years ago in favor of the "speed wins" mantra.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The website could benefit from a dedicated UI team.

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

    Pros

    The people are wonderful - very friendly, very helpful. People smile when you look at them. You can walk through the halls and see people laughing and talking and collaborating and genuinely seem happy to be working.

    Cons

    Outgrowing the space rapidly, can be a bit noisy in all the cube areas but sounds like that is being addressed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be nice to have one of two of the folks on the senior management make a quick "guest" appearance in the orientation program.
