I worked at TripAdvisor as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

- Company moves fast and is willing to make big changes to the site
- CEO and management very much in touch with engineers
- Little red tape; responsbility lies with individual engineers
- Catered lunches, snack wall

Cons

- A sink-or-swim process for new hires/interns
- Newton isn't quite the best location...

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing Steve K

    I worked at TripAdvisor as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Great working environment! Free snack and soda.
    2. People are friendly and like to help each other.

    Cons

    1. Although they said that they require people to handle both front-end and back-end, they keep giving me front-end job, no chance to touch their back-end at all! Maybe because I am just an intern.
    2. My manager seems don't care about my project. He has no idea what I was doing, and even doesn't care whether I can finish it or not.
    3. Seems my team doesn't care about the intern. No welcome and farewell lunch, which is unusually compared to the other team.

    Advice to Management

    For some managers, although we are intern, please pay a little bit attention to us!!! We are your team member, and not the air!
