    I have been working at Tripadvisor full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is by far the BEST Company i have worked for! i started out as a contractor and i was nervous that being a huge company i would be met with arrogance or know-it - all attitude but I felt so welcome from day 1. Every one in general was welcoming, helpful and now I am so blessed to have become full time and what an amazing team i am part of and all the other teams that i collaborate with. I feel extremely supported in all ways - resources to do my job, opportunities to learn and a clear path to career growth. I initially thought top management would be inaccessible but they are open arms... Steve is very down to earth and has an open door policy where you can stop by in his office and engage with him or say hello! I thought that was very humbling... Management encourages to communicate anything that can improve us the employees and the company as a whole without fear of intimidation. In addition to the incredible free lunch, snacks and coffees, the benefits are also amazing , their vision of charitable work is greatly encouraged, the office setting is relaxed where by you can work from anywhere in the building or outside when the weather allows. The culinary staff and cleaning crews are very incredibly efficient. All in all i could go on and on but there is too much to say...So far I have had a wonderful and amazing experience working at Trip and I am VERY VERY HAPPY here.. I feel acknowledged which may seem simple but a very crucial ingredient in an employee's performance.

    Cons

    sometime working with different national and international teams has a few hiccups but that is understandable and measures are constantly being taken to improve the system

    I worked at Tripadvisor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people at TripAdvisor are easy going, friendly, caring, and extremely intelligent. They are perhaps some of the most competent people I have ever worked with. Add the great team to phenomenal perks like free lunch, dogs in the office, a fitness center with nice locker rooms, a pub and game room, and you've got a great great place to work.

    Cons

    The company is trying to figure out how to grow its revenue and what it wants to be a five years from now. The vision is a bit hazy so you might find yourself working on a big new initiative, only to find the company is changing directions to another big new initiative. It can be frustrating, but I am hopeful that they will find their way in the next couple of years.

    You will not be able to leave (I have been interviewing and getting monetarily better offers, but still haven't found a place that feels better. Hence, haven't left!)

    Pros

    Everyone is really invested in the intern program, and the intern's learning Was given meaningful tasks that directly impacted/contributed to the company All the other interns were very nice, and there were multiple events planned for bonding by HR Amazing perks like a shuttle to help with commuting, free food (really good free lunch), super nice office space, casual dress Colleagues were very knowledgable, and open to interns exploring other areas of the company

    Cons

    Some days were slower than others in terms of tasks to do

    I worked at Tripadvisor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Stellar benefits, topped by the free lunches, incredible health insurance, and generous PTO.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up. The company has been constantly reorganizing as it tries to reposition itself in the market causing responsibilities to be constantly changing. Needham has a very high COL so unless you're senior management and can afford a $600k home, you'll have to settle for sitting in traffic an hour each way to work

    I have been working at Tripadvisor full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Compared to the previous company I worked for, this is like night and day. I feel like my team, organization, and broader TA as a whole all care about me as an employee and individual. There are lots of great perks that come with working in Needham, including travel and fitness benefits and free lunch.

    Cons

    Because TA is not a fledgling company anymore it cannot move as nimbly as smaller companies.

  10. "Very educational software internship"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern 

    I worked at Tripadvisor

    Pros

    My team was mindful about helping me through the onboarding process and getting some practical experience in a software engineering role. Mentor pairing was extremely helpful; I had no prior experience and they did a great job of teaching me the necessities and I found projects that ramped up in difficulty, allowing me to contribute and learn. They seemed very respectful to their employees. At least from what I could see, overtime was a rarity. Free lunch is fantastic!

    Cons

    My work leaned towards the front-end, and while I valued the skills I picked up through the summer, the work itself wasn't the most stimulating and I didn't see too much variety in project areas. Keep in mind I was only there for a summer on one team though.
