I worked at TripAdvisor full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Work environment is comfortable, people are friendly and the work is challenging. The company is always looking for new things to do and quick implementations to get things going.

Cons

Speed doesn't win in all departments. Unfortunately this mantra is carried over to too many things which can lead to rushed results and poor planning. Hiring for senior positions is typically done from BIG companies. Not a lot of promotion from within for Director VP etc...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work focusing on the customer needs. Keep innovating, but look inward for talent and create that HR training program that has been discussed for 3 yrs.

    I worked at TripAdvisor full-time (more than an 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.
