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

Pros

- My team, and the people who manage my team, are really driven and focused. This makes work very interesting. We are encouraged to bring crazy ideas to the table and are given the go-ahead to work on these ideas.

- Work culture: Free lunches, team bonding events, casual, free beer, your co-workers can be your friends

- Data driven

- Engineers and non-engineers are given equal prominence (at least on my team)

Cons

- Your managers greatly influence your experience at TripAdvisor. I am really lucky to have good managers but a lot of my other co-workers aren't

- Salary: Could be better :)

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

    Pros

    -Great benefits
    -Solid work/life balance
    -Good salary/bonus/stock
    -Free lunch and other perks

    Cons

    -Sometimes stressful (during deadlines, etc)
    -Headquarters technology isn't great for communicating with colleagues in other offices

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employee feedback---in all locations. Communicate how the company scales its values and processes with global growth--and really apply it to how we work in the day to day and the culture overall (in all offices). But overall, great co with a strong future.

    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time

    Pros

    There is a relaxed dress code, beer, and ping pong. And all of those thngs seemed great during my initial interview. But these things are standard these days at technical companies, After my first 3 months i was no longer wowed.

    Cons

    Pay raises are minimmal at best and provide lack of future earning ability.
    Employees seem to get pigeon holed into tasks with little to no opportunity to grow out of them or pursue new interests. This also makes advancement extremely difficult, most emplyees have to leave to grow in their careers.
    Lack any sort of mission or vision, feels like we want to be tripadvisor but are far from it.

    Advice to Management

    Work to create a culture of growth where people are rewarded for their accomplishments. It can be frustrating to see people's sucesses not recognised or celebrated. Beers and Happy hours are common place these days and not a unique quality. Also don't pigeon hole people in the same roles after they start and prove themsleves.
