    I worked at Tripadvisor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    100% paid health insurance for single people, pub in the office HQ, free yummy and diverse lunch choices everyday in the cafeteria, hydraulic desks.

    Cons

    No room for working independently (unless you’re a web developer or something similar), working remotely is shunned and looked down upon, no diversity, open-space floor plan is an absolute nightmare for introverts or those who get more work done in their own private spaces, and a very cliquey work environment.

    Thank you for your review and your honest feedback. We’re committed to offering employees great perks and benefits such as free food, social events and a modern and flexible office environment. Our building is specifically designed to accommodate all types of working styles (hydraulic desks, open spaces, private and group seating on every floor). That way, those who prefer to work independently can leave their area if it’s too noisy or distracting and can find quiet space anywhere in the building. We have worked hard to build a culture of strong teamwork and collaboration that aligns with our “better together” philosophy. This doesn’t mean that employees are forbidden from working from home. We don’t have a formal “working from home” policy in the US and we handle each case based on business need. Thank you again for your feedback and we wish you the best of luck in your new opportunity.

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

    Pros

    I love talking to people about my job. When people ask me, “do you like working there” I can’t help but smile. While it’s a job and it is work, it’s a privilege to work here and I get to realize that again and again each time I talk to someone about Trip. Even just explaining what he culture and benefits are like here people are always blown away. Sometimes it feels like an embarrassment of riches as I explain it to people, they get more and more shocked as I rattle off the perks. Whether it’s the free lunch or the feeling of community across teams and levels, I find myself being just as impressed by my words as those I am speaking to. If I had to pick, the biggest pros about working here are our philanthropic efforts and the normalcy of volunteering amongst the employees here and the transparency from management. Our global volunteer days we have each year during the summer highlight something that is present all year round at Tripadvisor: volunteering and giving back is not only encouraged here, it’s expected. I am humbled to be a part of a company who highly values giving back to the world that it aims to help us explore. The transparency is self-explanatory. We are seldom left in the dark and are quickly informed of any moving parts or changes in the company. It makes everyone feel important and essential to the team, an irreplaceable part of our culture.

    Cons

    Things move very quickly here and if that isn't your jive it can be a bit hard to keep up.

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

    Pros

    The workplace culture (in the parts that I interact with, at least) is fantastic. Everyone seems genuinely excited to be there and working on what they are working on. Things move pretty quickly when it is a priority, and there is a strong desire among both the business units and the engineers for mobility and flexibility when addressing new issues.

    Cons

    Ultimately, the travel industry in general and Trip specifically are in for some rough times. Google's monopolistic practices, regardless of what you think of them, are here to stay, and there may be a limit to how well Trip can compensate performing employees, etc, with that on the horizon, even after the Covid-19 issues sort themselves out.
