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

    Pros

    - Great Benefits, free food, insurance.
    - Friendly co workers and good work life balance

    Cons

    - Moving across the company is hard as most of the openings are for passive roles not active ones.
    - The company doesn't invest in employees learning as the CEO has speed wins motive.

    Advice to Management

    You don't hire smart people to tell what to do, you should hire smart people so that they can tell you what to do. Management needs to improvise on listening as the communication is only one way.

    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    TripAdvisor has a generous benefits package with stipends and discounts on personal travel, gym allowances, stock, free meals and more. My current department is a great place to work with a strong leader who really focuses on building up his team.

    Cons

    The lock-step strictness of the promotion schedule (you can only be promoted in January of each year but then you dont get your raise until March) makes for alot of resentment and makes turnover a problem in some places. The company also feels a little unweildy with bureaucracy and chnages can be hard to make.

    Advice to Management

    Change up the promotion/bonus timing to make it more flexible in order to retain employees.
