What Employees Say
I have been working at Tripadvisor full-time for more than a year
* Hotels product has great leadership in a newly-streamlined organization * Amazing product scale - hundreds of millions of visitors / month * Very strong colleagues on product and eng teams. ... Basically zero "bad eggs" on the product team.
* A lot of stakeholder management is required due to so many people working on a relatively small number of pages.
