How are senior leaders perceived at Tripadvisor?

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.

Advice to Management

We used to love our company even through hard times. Try valuing your employees a little more.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Tripadvisor?

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.

Advice to Management

Develop managers more. Have mandatory training for managers especially those that have been part of the company for years and have worked their way up with little or no coaching. Figure out a strategy or value proposition and be bold.
