    Pros

    Smart engineers, challenging problems and great benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management is a disaster and has been for years. The company changes course every six months and every new idea is presented as THE IDEA that will fix everything, though often it's something only a few people at the top think is worth doing and everyone on the ground knows will fail. There are highs and lows but the company has been trending downward the last year or two. It's a shame because at its core TripAdvisor is a really great product and something that users love. Unfortunately the company has spent far more time and money on failed marketing campaigns and redesigns than it has in on improving its infrastructure in a way that actually benefits users.

    Pros

    Great benefits, free (amazing) lunch, $600 annual fitness reimbursement, $250 travel reimbursement, summer Fridays, week between Christmas and New Years off, smart people and great teams

    Cons

    Constant change of direction, lots of uncertainty, constant state of re-organization, focus on speed without quality, teams are often resource constrained and must deliver projects quickly with little focus on success measures

    Thank you for highlighting the strength of our teams. It's our people make that TripAdvisor a great place to work, so it's always great hearing directly from employees about how their colleagues positively impact their experience. As it is with any large organization, change is inevitable. Rather than viewing it as a setback, we're looking forward to embracing the opportunity ahead.

    Pros

    Great benefits and salary. They really do care about employees and treat people well with great benefits and perks.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no strategy from the top down. Leaders are poor, no management experience.

    Pros

    - Locations in Boston and Needham are great - Benefits are excellent - Team members for the most part are great to work with

    Cons

    - Compensation - Lack of transparency - Leadership makes decisions without truly thinking about how the customer will be impacted. - Spread too thin. Competitor companies all seem to have a focus on one area in the travel industry which they excel at. - TripAdvisor still seems to be struggling with shifting identies from a research/review based platform to a booking platform. - Bugs that are reported by clients can sit for weeks at a time with no fix and very slow communication updates. Speed doesn’t win here.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits including free lunch, an on-site gym, a vacation reimbursement, Summer Fridays, a pub, a game room, etc. . . Some managers are very flexible about allowing employees to work remotely. The majority of people I interacted with were great - intelligent, dedicated, down to earth - the type of people you want to work with. The online travel industry is an exciting sector to be a part of and the work is interesting. The company does try to do some fun events to reward employees but they require you to have the time to be able to attend them.

    Cons

    No clear path to career advancement. It seems like the skills necessary to get a promotion are undefined, secret, and left to the whims of each manager. I worked so many hours I wasn't able to go on vacation or take advantage of other benefits like the gym, yoga and meditation classes, etc. They are trying to squeeze every ounce of productivity out of employees, running a lot of teams very lean, not promoting anyone at lower and mid-level, and people are burnt out and discouraged. A lot of turnover in HR and certain other teams makes you wonder what's going on.

    Pros

    Fair compensation, great benefits, big enough company that you could move around.

    Cons

    Main office is in Boston so it's not great if you want to find a role in NYC. Pretty hierarchical. Working for one of their acquired companies meant being disconnected from the main company, and having my only real connection be through my GM (only conduit of information).
