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

    Pros

    Great team buzz, good transparency of company development. Good company benefits.

    Cons

    No fast track opportunity for personal progression. Promotional opportunities are standardised rather than specific to the individual.

    Advice to Management

    Be flexible with promotional opportunities to those that deserve them. Encourage input on idea collaboration on a wider scale to enhance the TripAdvisor portfolio.

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

    Pros

    Nothing good about TripAdvisor Dublin except the free lunches . Some of the employees are nice people other are just their for a job like zombies

    Cons

    Everything about TripAdvisor is a lie ! The product is sold to customers who think it does something it doesn’t, nobody in the company can explain how the hotel solution works , The management haven’t got a clue how to sell never mind lead a team. The training is beyond shocking ! No career progression targets are made up of a fake growth rate If you want to loose faith in humanity and dive into a black hole of failure...

    Advice to Management

    Start by employing real managers who know how to sell. Provide ongoing training and actually create a product that works

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

    Pros

    Well stocked pantry, free food, drinks and snacks. Health insurance coverage is very good. Colleagues are very friendly.

    Cons

    The problem lies with management - from senior leadership to regional directors. There is no vision and most often they are still trapped in their "start up and almighty bubble". A lot of customers are already writing the company off. Very biased HR and no due process given to employees - they just side with management. Sometimes salary delay. No firm decision making and "speed wins" means they can change decisions in...

    Advice to Management

    Have 360 degree feedback from employees. Get outside consultants to assesss regional directors as they can be abusive of their powers and authority.

    Pros

    Fantastic brand and company management that is top of the industry. Everyone knows the brand and it's easy to get in the door if you're a salesperson. Company benefits are excellent, senior management is exceptional and have a strong longterm vision.

    Cons

    Not much career progression, the organization is a bit slow to react despite the company mantra 'speed wins'

    Advice to Management

    Growth and more opportunity to advance in career. Position/title is below market standard
