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

Pros

If you like to be at company that's winning, TA is a good place for you. The company is very data driven and is both innovating and iterating at a pace that will keep it ahead of competitors for a long time.

Pay is also competitive and there are many benefits and perks.

Cons

The pace is so fast that sometimes it can be overwhelming. Hiring can sometimes be slow which puts extra pressure on current employees.

    I have been working at TripAdvisor as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    TripAdvisor hiring process is very selective and they hire top-notch engineers from top schools (MIT, Harvard), but TA also has no ass*e policy.
    Very technical environment. The CEO has software background. It's a data driven company.
    Very good perks: Free catered lunches 3 days a week, soda, snacks, pizza, gym on site, Mac laptops. Tech talks every Wednesday.
    Good compensation.
    Flexible hours, could work from home.
    The company promotes from within.

    Cons

    Hectic environment, some people put more than 60 hours/week.
    "Speed wins" mantra doesn't always work.
    The communication between the teams could be improved.
    Huge code base and sometimes difficult to maintain.

    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time

    Pros

    Everyone here at FlipKey is fun to work with. I work on the engineering team and everyone gets along. Younger engineers are guided by the senior engineers. Everyone is knowledgable and willing to help. The benefits we get from being part of TripAdvisor are solid. Great office culture.

    Cons

    Salaries are average and not tied to performance. There is no recognition when someone goes above and beyond. There is 0 direction from management. The avenue for career advancement is narrow if it exists at all. Lately we just follow our competitors with no focus on innovation.
