    I worked at SmarterTravel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits and work perks

    Cons

    After the departure of DK (former president), there was constant structural change and people getting swept up by TripAdvisor constantly. The culture was adversely impacted as a result and led to even more people leaving.
