The Communications department is a mess

PR Manager (Former Employee)

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

Pros- Well known brand
- Good employee perks, e.g. $250 yearly personal travel stipend

Cons- Leadership is not focused on coaching, developing career paths, or skill building
- Environment can be stressful
- Everyone does administrative work - "all hands on deck"
- Coordinating over global time zones is difficult and often it takes days/weeks to receive an answer to a simple request
- Projects require several levels of red tape, approvals, edits. The "Speed Wins" mentality does not ring true here
- PR department has suffered a retention problem - 5 employees resigned in 12 months

Advice to Senior ManagementHire a VP in the U.S. who has strong management experience and can be accessible to the team. Someone who can LEAD, not just execute. Hiring a new junior PR assistant to offload some of the administrative work wouldn't be a bad idea either.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
