    Pros

    - Travel is the industry. - Smart colleagues. - Lunch is provided since HQ is in Needham.

    Cons

    Want the truth? - Self centered leadership drives decision making at the executive level. Very political and company is masking it with a reorganization. - Unprecedented level of micro management and indecision from the executive team that stifles progress across the company. Speed can't win. - Once a decision is made, it's a fire drill every time. Make sure you respond to your email promptly on weekends and holidays. - Almost no accountability at the senior leadership level and above. All blame is put on those less senior despite conflicting directives and moving goals. - Excessive hiring in the attractions business supported by the executive team led to justified round of layoffs of mostly lower level employees with a couple of senior leaders. - Morale continues to be very low with no turnaround in sight. - Little importance placed on transparency at the company despite it being a core value. - Attrition continues in a year that will see the stock price hit a new low.

    Pros

    I love talking to people about my job. When people ask me, “do you like working there” I can’t help but smile. While it’s a job and it is work, it’s a privilege to work here and I get to realize that again and again each time I talk to someone about Trip. Even just explaining what he culture and benefits are like here people are always blown away. Sometimes it feels like an embarrassment of riches as I explain it to people, they get more and more shocked as I rattle off the perks. Whether it’s the free lunch or the feeling of community across teams and levels, I find myself being just as impressed by my words as those I am speaking to. If I had to pick, the biggest pros about working here are our philanthropic efforts and the normalcy of volunteering amongst the employees here and the transparency from management. Our global volunteer days we have each year during the summer highlight something that is present all year round at Tripadvisor: volunteering and giving back is not only encouraged here, it’s expected. I am humbled to be a part of a company who highly values giving back to the world that it aims to help us explore. The transparency is self-explanatory. We are seldom left in the dark and are quickly informed of any moving parts or changes in the company. It makes everyone feel important and essential to the team, an irreplaceable part of our culture.

    Cons

    Things move very quickly here and if that isn't your jive it can be a bit hard to keep up.
