    Thank you for your feedback--we're sorry that your experience at TripAdvisor isn't currently what you want it to be. Your feedback is very useful as we continue to focus on growing our culture and leadership across the globe. Your final point re: remembering our roots is especially helpful and timely since we continue to work toward maintaining our 'speed wins' philosophy and small company culture, even as we continue to grow. In the meantime, we encourage you to connect with your HR Business Partner to give additional thoughts---we're always looking to get constructive feedback from our teams.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. It is great to hear the positive words regarding our brand, benefits and team. I’m unsure of when you left TripAdvisor, but within the past few years, we’ve launched several key programs specifically focused on improving communication and talent development. We frequently use opportunities such as our global company meetings, town halls and executive sync ups to communicate our company vision. Most recently, we’ve held a number of town hall meetings at the functional level to provide additional communication about the vision of our Global Sales team. True to one of our core values that “we never stop learning”, and recognizing that people are our greatest asset, talent development remains a top priority for us. This past year, we introduced a number of new trainings including one specifically focused on managerial expectations. Part of this training is providing managers with tools that help them to identify how they can best support and develop their team members into future leaders. Even though you have left TripAdvisor, I would welcome the opportunity to connect via email or in person to discuss any additional feedback. Thanks again for your review and we wish you the best of luck in your next opportunity. -Sam Thompson, Regional Director of Inside Sales

    Pros

    Nothing good about TripAdvisor Dublin except the free lunches . Some of the employees are nice people other are just their for a job like zombies

    Cons

    Everything about TripAdvisor is a lie ! The product is sold to customers who think it does something it doesn’t, nobody in the company can explain how the hotel solution works , The management haven’t got a clue how to sell never mind lead a team. The training is beyond shocking ! No career progression targets are made up of a fake growth rate If you want to loose faith in humanity and dive into a black hole of failure TripAdvisor Dublin is the company for you !

    Wow. This feedback is tough to read and I’m sorry to hear that you left TripAdvisor with such negative feelings towards the company. You’ve mentioned several concerns in your review so I will do my best to address each one. Putting our employees in a position to succeed is a top priority for our team in Dublin and for our teams around the world. This starts with the people that we hire into TripAdvisor, how we train our employees, and extends through the products we deliver to our consumers and partners. We encourage all Salespeople and Managers to raise their hand when they need assistance, so that we can support them and work to get everyone over their sales targets. One of our core values, we never stop learning, speaks directly to the importance we place on employee training and development. We’re proud of the investment we’ve made in our sales training program, a program that last year resulted in an average of 30 hours of training per rep. I’m disappointed to hear that this training fell short of your expectations. Regarding our clients, we work closely with them so that they fully understand our solutions and can take advantage of services to improve their business and grow with us. The tens of thousands of clients we do have today have been with us for a long time and have found great value in our partnership. If they can’t succeed then neither will we. If you have the time, I’d like to fully understand where we missed the mark and I will investigate the concerns you’ve flagged. As always, I’d welcome a conversation to better understand your feedback. -Sam Thompson, Regional Director of Inside Sales

    Pros

    Well stocked pantry, free food, drinks and snacks. Health insurance coverage is very good. Colleagues are very friendly.

    Cons

    The problem lies with management - from senior leadership to regional directors. There is no vision and most often they are still trapped in their "start up and almighty bubble". A lot of customers are already writing the company off. Very biased HR and no due process given to employees - they just side with management. Sometimes salary delay. No firm decision making and "speed wins" means they can change decisions in a matter of hours. Limited career. If you are not ambitious you can stay here.

    Thank you for the review although this is a difficult feedback to read. This is not the type of experience that we want anyone on our team to have. You have expressed several important concerns and I believe a more in-depth conversation would be beneficial. I encourage you to connect with your HR Business partner or me directly for a deeper discussion. As a company founded on the principal of transparency, we work hard to ensure that our vision, strategy and processes are shared with all levels of the organization. Our quarterly all hands meetings and monthly sync ups both provide a lot of valuable information about these topics. You have made a great suggestion on having 360 degree feedback. We agree that this type of feedback is critically important and had added it to our performance review process last year. I encourage you to connect with your HRBP or manager if you have not yet gone through our performance review cycle. Thank you for your feedback again, and I welcome a time for further discussion.

    Fantastic brand and company management that is top of the industry. Everyone knows the brand and it's easy to get in the door if you're a salesperson. Company benefits are excellent, senior management is exceptional and have a strong longterm vision.

    Not much career progression, the organization is a bit slow to react despite the company mantra 'speed wins'
