    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Well known brand
    - Good employee perks, e.g. $250 yearly personal travel stipend

    Cons

    - Leadership is not focused on coaching, developing career paths, or skill building
    - Environment can be stressful
    - Everyone does administrative work - "all hands on deck"
    - Coordinating over global time zones is difficult and often it takes days/weeks to receive an answer to a simple request
    - Projects require several levels of red tape, approvals, edits. The "Speed Wins" mentality does not ring true here
    - PR department has suffered a retention problem - 5 employees resigned in 12 months

    Advice to Management

    Hire a VP in the U.S. who has strong management experience and can be accessible to the team. Someone who can LEAD, not just execute. Hiring a new junior PR assistant to offload some of the administrative work wouldn't be a bad idea either.

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

    Pros

    Work environment is comfortable, people are friendly and the work is challenging. The company is always looking for new things to do and quick implementations to get things going.

    Cons

    Speed doesn't win in all departments. Unfortunately this mantra is carried over to too many things which can lead to rushed results and poor planning. Hiring for senior positions is typically done from BIG companies. Not a lot of promotion from within for Director VP etc...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work focusing on the customer needs. Keep innovating, but look inward for talent and create that HR training program that has been discussed for 3 yrs.
