I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

A combination of very smart people and the energetic and positive atmosphere that really helps you make a real impact in results and be at the center of the online travel business industry. Very good package of compensation and benefits, specially for well-being and discounted travel opportunities.

Cons

The size of the company, with more that 1500 employees, and the fact that it's now a public company (Nasdaq:TRIP) could make you miss some of the beauties of a the start-up way of live.

    Pros

    UK staff benefits are good and continually increasing. Central London office is in a great location and co-workers are all very diligent people whom I enjoy working with.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can feel that the internal understanding/support for European teams is lacking, from the US head office.

    Pros

    TripAdvisor treats its engineers really well, with top-of-the-line MacBooks, 30-inch monitors, and frequent opportunities for hackathons & book groups. If you are having trouble, it certainly won't be due to lack of hardware. Everyone is super-intelligent, and even as the company has grown, it has maintained its culture of encouraging frequent face-to-face communication between product managers, designers, and engineers. Work/life balance is encouraged, but employees have a high level of passion about their work, and it never feels like anyone is just there from 9-5.

    The company is very data-driven in its methodology, with frequent tests to see which site changes have the most impact. This approach means that small, incremental projects are often favored over large, 6-month initiatives.

    TripAdvisor is very popular with users and it is always a thrill when friends and family use the site to plan their vacations.

    Lastly, TripAdvisor is a place where any software engineer can build a large network, whether they are a new college grad or have been in industry for a long time. The level of cross-department communication is much higher here than at other companies.

    Cons

    A few areas could be improved. Historically, the company has not had cutting-edge UX design in its DNA, but clearly a continued focus on UX design will help the site improve. All of the engineers are smart, but also extremely opinionated, which makes design & code reviews somewhat more of an arduous process than they need to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't stay content maintaining the site as it is now- continue to take risks improving and iterating on the user experience.
