    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    There are so many opportunities to learn new things. There is almost a university feel to its campus HQ. Very flexible in working from home.

    Cons

    All the action is in Needham,MA HQ office.

    Advice to Management

    Pursue innovation and not follow other competitors that go to market. That will be critical for long term viability of company.

    I worked at TripAdvisor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great Environment, truly looking after employees with perks and benefits, lots of opportunity to learn. I probably had the best professional time of my life for few years actually seeing a product growing and getting market share month after month but then someone decided that we were not making enough $$ , and after the changes we were making even less .....

    Cons

    Changes are continuous and often without any sense of strategy, Hotel customers lost confidence on product and brand. Not listening to the industry feedback. B2B membership product completely out of range in term s of price point and value vs cost.

    Advice to Management

    Make it simple and you will succeed.

    Pros

    Great employee benefits and nice offices globally. Most of the people are really smart and great to work with and it's generally a nice environment to work in.

    Cons

    Career progression can be somewhat limited.

    Advice to Management

    HR business partners in the global offices (outside of headquarters) would help make people feel stronger about career advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Bright friendly helpful people. You will always be challenged to do your best work here and the facilities are second to none. Green workplaces and social awareness thru the company's charitable foundation set the tone. The focus is not simply vacations but travel in a broad sense.

    Cons

    Terrible location to commute to by car but there are shuttles to public transportation. Long hours in some groups. Bonus is dependent on being there on the payout date. Stock comp is limited to restricted stock for positions below director level..

    Advice to Management

    Open workstations are very distracting and must reduce productivity. Particularly in finance area.

    Pros

    Quality, talented people. Well resourced. High visibility at all levels of the organization. Flexible organizational structure to evolves to meet opportunities. High growth creates many opportunities.

    Cons

    Culture favors iteration over necessary step changes. Management sometimes treats success metrics as a vision and doesn't defend the user experience. Few women at senior positions and implicit biases often surface. Weakness in the director ranks create churn.

    Advice to Management

    Set more of a vision and guidelines to unify the organization. Reflect on why women are not 50/50 in the product organization despite junior ranks weighing heavily towards more women.

    Pros

    Great new building - really makes a difference in work effectiveness. Right away you get to work on big, impactful projects.

    Cons

    Bigger company so red tape in getting things done. Spend a lot of time coordinating with other teams and getting buy in. Pay is not competitive.

    Pros

    A combination of very smart people and the energetic and positive atmosphere that really helps you make a real impact in results and be at the center of the online travel business industry. Very good package of compensation and benefits, specially for well-being and discounted travel opportunities.

    Cons

    The size of the company, with more that 1500 employees, and the fact that it's now a public company (Nasdaq:TRIP) could make you miss some of the beauties of a the start-up way of live.
