Fine

Current Employee - Software Engineer in Newton, MA
Current Employee - Software Engineer in Newton, MA

I have been working at TripAdvisor as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Lots of random perks. Pretty relaxed office

Cons

Much of the work was rather boring. The feel of the office was like it was still trying to be a cool startup when it really is just a corporate enterprise.

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

    Pros

    Great work/life balance.
    Fun culture.
    Nice facility.
    Pay was okay.

    Cons

    Location. The headquarters is in a suburb of Boston. Hard to get cabs, and not a lot to do in Newton, MA.
    Too many temps. They have 100+ temp employees who seem like a subculture in the company. Also, they are all hired through PSG who doesn't seem to treat them fairly.
    Salary is mediocre at best for anyone who is not in sales or an engineer.
    Facilities and Admin have a "good ole boy" mentality that is opposite of the rest of the company.
    The country music they play at reception seems out of place at a travel/tech company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new staffing agency asap.
    Upgrade reception so it represents the company more adequately.
    Integrate the temporary employees into the culture more.
