What Employees Say
I have been working at Tripadvisor full-time for more than a year
I love talking to people about my job. When people ask me, “do you like working there” I can’t help but smile. While it’s a job and it is work, it’s a privilege to work here and I get to realize that... again and again each time I talk to someone about Trip. Even just explaining what he culture and benefits are like here people are always blown away. Sometimes it feels like an embarrassment of riches as I explain it to people, they get more and more shocked as I rattle off the perks. Whether it’s the free lunch or the feeling of community across teams and levels, I find myself being just as impressed by my words as those I am speaking to. If I had to pick, the biggest pros about working here are our philanthropic efforts and the normalcy of volunteering amongst the employees here and the transparency from management. Our global volunteer days we have each year during the summer highlight something that is present all year round at Tripadvisor: volunteering and giving back is not only encouraged here, it’s expected. I am humbled to be a part of a company who highly values giving back to the world that it aims to help us explore. The transparency is self-explanatory. We are seldom left in the dark and are quickly informed of any moving parts or changes in the company. It makes everyone feel important and essential to the team, an irreplaceable part of our culture.
Things move very quickly here and if that isn't your jive it can be a bit hard to keep up.
I have been working at Kiva full-time for more than 5 years
I have worked at Kiva in its early growth stages. I left the company for other opportunities, and then I rejoined Kiva inspired by the new growth phase. I feel excited and positive about new... initiatives that help scale its mission of financial inclusiveness. The company has seen a fair share of tough times and good times. Kiva has held together through this by staying true to its mission. The success has been possible because of passionate and sincere people that Kiva manages to attract to this date. Kiva is a living example of the strength of collective good that spans diverge community. Amid San Francisco's hyper-growth companies where it is easy to lose your self, Kiva is where you can find yourself back again. There are a lot of opportunities and freedom to grow. There are a lot of areas to collaborate. There are a lot of areas to learn and thrive from diverse thoughts. Kiva has a strong alumni network - you build connections forever. We are in a phase of modernizing existing architecture, and our new initiatives are embracing new technology. The process of going through this change has been thoughtful, and it has naturally encouraged broader engagement and collaboration. The process has also inspired more engineers to step up with a sense of ownership. I excited about this new wave of energy.
Being a not for profit means there are resource constraints at every level. The management is sensitive and understanding of this, which makes it easier to digest. You are on your own to define... how to grow and how you shape your contributions. For some, this may not be easy, and yet for some, this could be liberating.
Advice to Management
Double down on cross-collaboration efforts - which is already happening. We have a lot of passionate people who give everything to this organization. Watch out that they don't get burnout.
