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

    Pros

    Free lunch, snack walls, gym, beautiful new HQ and amazing coworkers. I enjoyed some of my time here and made some great connections, friends and resume content for my new career.

    Cons

    Low pay, no recognition for those that go above and beyond, high turnover and a company that tries to be better than Google and cater to engineers. Work/life balance is a joke and working from home is frowned upon in most instances. Manage micromanages and senior management is untouchable and out of touch with how their employees view their workplace. Told to write positive reviews for Glassdoor when it goes against... their own review policy for the site. Their is very little opportunity for career growth and TA would rather hire externally than give their own employees a chance to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking to hire externally and grow great individuals internally. Try less to try to be Google and stop taking yourselves so seriously. Give your employees a better salary and stop trying to "buy" everyone with free lunch and iced coffee on tap. Do an internal sweep on those people who are not pulling their weight and promote employees who work hard and deserve more. Stop making it so obvious that you only have... a new HQ and amazing perks to get engineers from blue chip school that Google would snatch up.
