    I worked at TripAdvisor part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed the job, challenging but to the point. I loved the atmosphere at Trip (endearing nickname those of us have given it). Great camaraderie and fellowship with other co-workers. Benefits are a perks, though I was a contract employee. Great long-term place to work. Ability to move up as well.

    Cons

    Very few cons other than people taking advantage of company perks without really investing in the company itself.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better oversight and congruency between teams.

    Pros

    great people, amazing office in London, feeling proud to be working here

    Cons

    no clear career path, copany is too HQ centric

    Advice to Management

    pay more attention to the employees in non-managerial roles which are not given enough support & renumeration so many people in these roles are leaving the company

    Pros

    Great benefits. Smart people. Beautiful office in Needham. 5 day a week free lunch, with huge variety. Online courses to improve skills.

    Cons

    Advancement is slow and generally you need to be doing the work of the next level before you get the promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to your employees

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

    Pros

    The company offers excellent benefits, encourages personal growth, and sees genuinely invested in their employees' development and happiness. Overall, the company is comprised of whip-smart, innovative people who are fully engaged in their job and the company's success.

    Cons

    Adequate compensation and personal satisfaction varies from department to department. If you are an engineer, it seems you are catered to and are the top priority at the company. If you originate in a different department, however, your experience may be very different. It will also vary depending on whom is guiding your team.

    Advice to Management

    Management tries very hard to maintain an open line of communication with employees and encourage innovation, but I think the "boots on the ground" employees, such as those who work on actual reviews, are often overlooked and the true potential of each individual can go unrecognized and untapped. Perhaps, more time with lower level employees would assist in strengthening that communication and open up new possibilities...

    Pros

    Tons of great benefits, flexible schedule, relaxed work environment. TA is a company that understands the needs of your personal and family life, and is very flexible when situations arise. Exciting to work for a company that is still growing and has so much room to grow.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any cons.

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

    Pros

    The work environment is very collaborative and enjoyable. The company truly cares about their employees and offers great benefits. Everyone at this company is incredibly smart and you will learn something new from your peers every day. Things move very fast at TripAdvisor as the company still tries to keep its "start-up like feel" even though it is well beyond that point. Despite the "Speed Wins" Motto, this company...

    Cons

    If you are looking to grow laterally or switch tracks within the company it can be harder to do than at other companies. They offer classes in other areas to encourage their employees to grow, but in terms of making an actual title/role switch it seems hard to do.
