Philanthropy & Volunteerism
At TripAdvisor, we understand the role we play in mobilizing our people, expertise and resources to address some of the most pressing humanitarian challenges facing global communities. Giving back has always been a core part of our DNA and the passion and commitment of our people around tackling critical issues has been the driving force behind the philanthropic efforts of the company and the TripAdvisor Charitable Foundation. Since 2010, our employee-led philanthropy has resulted in donations of over $25 million from the TripAdvisor Charitable Foundation to global nonprofits tackling community development, public health and disaster relief challenges. For us, it’s not about creating a big splash or making lots of noise; it’s about using our expertise and assets thoughtfully and strategically to improve lives.
I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time (More than 3 years)
Great culture. You can see people focused on work and not chatting around. Good goal setting and 360 degree feedback. Amazing food and work life balance.
Travel is a challenging industry.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TripAdvisor (Needham, MA) in March 2018.
Phone screening: ~25 minutes spent talking about my resume, with 30 minutes dedicated to a technical question and 5 minutes for questions. Took them two days to get back to me.
Take-home programming task: I spent the majority of this time working on code design and tests. Got a response in two days.
Accelerated on-site schedule: 2 technical interviews followed by a behavioral interview over lunch. Got a response the next day (although I did ask for an accelerated schedule to counter a separate offer - speed won in this case!)
