Good Benefits - Too many levels of management

Lead Engineer (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at TripAdvisor

ProsBenefits package is great. Not only the 'normal' benefits that you get at a company, but being part of the Expedia network, there were a number of perks/discounts that you would get on travel.

ConsProjects that I was working on kept having more and more layers of management added to them, until the managers were outnumbering the contributors. Scope creep was inevitable and projects that should have been pushed live months in advance, got held up with 'wait, one more feature before we release'

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce the layers of middle management and move in a more agile manner, releasing code more frequently and iterating based upon feedback.

Great Job, Wicked Perks

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at TripAdvisor


Pros: I'll start with the job part. Because I work on a small team I'm often able to take total ownership of what I'm working on… Cons: As I said my team is small so there are times when I feel a little like I'm floating… Advice to Senior Management: I guess I would say just keep the door open so-to-speak.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
