    "Great place to learn how an internet company works"

    Pros

    As an engineer, I get to work on a variety of projects across the development stack, and I get to see how a very large & successful internet property is put together & run. The engineering team is one of the best I've encountered, and at least in my division, engineering has a close & productive relationship with the product & marketing teams. And the free lunches are almost too good.

    Cons

    Although Trip strives to keep a small company atmosphere, it's far too big for everyone to know everyone else, and I feel like the informal communications network has been stretched to its limit. Health insurance coverage is OK but inferior to what I'm used to, office space is tight, and Newton Highlands is not Kendall Square.

    Advice to Management

    Face the fact that it's a big company, and no one person knows how everything works anymore.

    make more resources available to get things done (for all teams).
