Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern in Newton, MA

I worked at TripAdvisor as an intern for less than a year

Pros

- Company moves fast and is willing to make big changes to the site
- CEO and management very much in touch with engineers
- Little red tape; responsbility lies with individual engineers
- Catered lunches, snack wall

Cons

- A sink-or-swim process for new hires/interns
- Newton isn't quite the best location...

    Pros

    Free snacks, free beer
    Great product, solid technology

    Cons

    Senior Mgt "strongly encouraging" current employees to write positive reviews on working at Trip. What? Isnt this how Trip makes money and depends on honest unbiased reviews?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a quarterly bonus program, that will help offset the mass exodus when employees collect their annual bonus.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
