      Pros

      Reliable reviews are the best asset.

      Cons

      If Air BnB grows up more, they'll lose their share.

      Former Employee - Marketing Specialist in Needham, MA

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

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

      Pros

      Stellar benefits, topped by the free lunches, incredible health insurance, and generous PTO.

      Cons

      Difficult to move up. The company has been constantly reorganizing as it tries to reposition itself in the market causing responsibilities to be constantly changing. Needham has a very high COL so unless you're senior management and can afford a $600k home, you'll have to settle for sitting in traffic an hour each way to work

      Advice to Management

      Tell your employees that they're doing a good job every once and a while

      Approves of CEO

      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.

      Advice to Management

      Be more flexible with allowing people to work remotely, and make it more normalized for people who work better independently to do so, instead of having forced—and often pointless—meetings to brainstorm.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      As with most of the reviews here: fairly competitive compensation, robust benefits package, great HQ space for employees, a genuine passion by the employees for the brand, a strong corporate philanthropy program and there are some supremely talented individuals in the company that are a pleasure to work with.

      Cons

      - Global company that acts local and insular. Decisions are driven out of Needham with little strategic consideration for the international offices or the territories in which we have a presence. There are a few senior leaders who have "global" responsibilities in their title that rarely travel to offices outside of Needham. - There is so much pivoting that we are all dizzy from doing a 180 based on the latest change...

      Advice to Management

      - Improve the performance review, promotions and merit review process so that employees don't feel as if they are a part of the Hunger Games "may the odds be ever in your favor" that you will get a productive review and merit increase on time. - Senior leadership - please leave your offices and spend time with your employees and if you are global, get out of Needham a couple of times a year and be present for the offices...

      Pros

      Phenomenal benefits! Gym, free massages, discounted manicures, TripAdvisor gear, referral bonus, free concierge for personal needs, and free holiday gift wrapping. Don’t worry about eating breakfast or packing a lunch, there is free snacks, free coffee, free lunch, free frozen yogurt bar and more! Strong worklife balance practiced at all levels. Summer Fridays, competitive vacation, holiday and sick days are just the...

      Cons

      Growing pains typical of start ups. TripAdvisor and the various companies they have acquired are all merging cultures, technology and processes. Not everyone is open to changing their ways, which causes small pockets of disgruntled employees the inhibit growth and a positive work environment. “Speed wins” definition differs based on a given person’s motives. Speed can be cited for a sloppy implementation, poor communication...

      Pros

      Awesome benefits and people. Boston office is a great location. Work is always interesting and the industry is constantly changing which keeps things exciting.

      Cons

      Benefits heavily impact salary and bonus structure. No focus on career growth. Lot of changes due to acquisitions.

      Pros

      This review is for the Boston office which also has reviews under FlipKey. If you are interviewing at the Boston office make sure you are looking at those reviews! - snacks in the office - catered lunch twice a week - good location in Boston - coworkers are friendly - work is easy if you want a 9-5:30

      Cons

      - work is boring - most people do tactical stuff all day and there is no strategy involved, doesn't matter what level you are - career pathing is nonexistent - undeserved promotions go to those who are management favorites - many coworkers are just here until something better comes along so you never know when your team will lose more people - it's so quiet in the office that you will want to jump out the windows...

      Advice to Management

      Pay attention to the number of people leaving the company or at least pretend you care when someone asks about it in a team meeting. It's not normal to lose 50% of your team within one year. This is not "growing pains" from TripAdvisor buying FlipKey.

      Pros

      Work-life balance is highly valued and actually achieved, unlike many tech companies who talk the talk but do not walk the walk.

      Cons

      Upward growth potential, no career track per se.

      Advice to Management

      Keep including us in your plans and share the successes and failings openly, as is already being done.

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

      Pros

      If you like to be at company that's winning, TA is a good place for you. The company is very data driven and is both innovating and iterating at a pace that will keep it ahead of competitors for a long time. Pay is also competitive and there are many benefits and perks.

      Cons

      The pace is so fast that sometimes it can be overwhelming. Hiring can sometimes be slow which puts extra pressure on current employees.
