I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- Amazing benefits
- Great company perks - daily/in the office as well as events held for employees
- Things move very quickly.
- New products coming out all the time and opportunities to work on new things
- Lots of opportunities to make suggestions through contests, surveys, etc., regardless of job level

Cons

- Much of the communication between departments is done via email instant messaging - most of the time that is fine, but sometimes you need in person meetings.

    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    TripAdvisor treats their employees like gold! The benefits (other than vacation time) are the best around and the people working here are genuinely nice and smart. Truly the best working environment I have ever been in. I may have gained 10 pounds though due to the amazing free lunches and the unlimited "snack" wall.

    Cons

    As I mentioned above, they could be better about vacation time, especially for a travel company. You start with 3 weeks vacation, no personal days. They give "Summer Fridays" but you end up having to put in 40 hours during the week that you take a summer Friday so it doesn't really feel like a perk.

    Also, there are a lot of layers of management that probably do not need to exist. TA could save some money by eliminating a few layers. They can get a lot more productivity out of the staff they currently have.

    Advice to Management

    There could be better training opportunities in general. They bring in outside consultants sometimes but it seems like it would be better to have people on staff full-time since from what I have seen the outside consultants they have for training are not very impressive.
