Yes, there are some good people here, but in general there are serious problems.

Manager (Current Employee)
Newton, MA

I have been working at TripAdvisor

ProsThere are lots of smart, interesting, friendly, fun people below the upper management level.
There is a great sense of comradery among employees below the upper management level.
The engineering team is great to work with. Great attitude, great ideas.
The free lunches, snacks, and drinks are nice, and lunch time is a good opportunity to chat with colleagues and meet new people.

ConsThere is a total lack of people management ability and emotional intelligence at the upper management level. These individuals are in need of a people management course. Some of them also need a lesson in time management and prioritization.

Overall, there is very little investment in employee satisfaction, motivation, and growth. Yes, there are some great team leaders within the organization, but that's the exception, not the rule. I don't think these people learned their skills at TripAdvisor.

Moving between departments at TripAdvisor is much more difficult than it needs to be. Isn't it better to keep a great employee and let them learn something new than to lose them altogether?

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let a single bad manager alienate good people who actually like working for the company. Hold managers accountable when good people leave, and ask yourself what these managers could have done to help the employee grow and feel satisfied.

Take a hard look at some of your VPs and make the tough decisions before it's too late.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It's got it it's ups and downs

Pros: The best thing about working at Tripadvisor is that for the most part you will be working with a LOT of very smart people.… Cons: You will work hard at Tripadvisor. Don't be surprised by 50-60 hour weeks. Some of the management teams fail to realize what they… Advice to Senior Management: Recognition.
