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

Pros

As an engineer I actually enjoyed the requirement for all code to be peer reviewed. You can learn faster and you know that everything going out the door is quality work. The benefits package is excellent. I loved the recreational travel reimbursement.

Cons

The only con would be that there is no longer a dedicated UI team. Each engineer is responsible for their own UI with varying results. My understanding is they broke up the UI team a few years ago in favor of the "speed wins" mantra.

Advice to Management

The website could benefit from a dedicated UI team.

    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There really are amazing benefits from snacks, lunch, and lots of games. My team also had a great vibe and I really felt that everyone genuinely cared about each other.

    Cons

    The management never sticks to a decision and there is a lot of politics at mid to upper management level. This was very frustrating when you were trying to work on a project.
