    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    great benefits, everyday free lunch, snacks, soft drinks, office is nicely decorated, much better working enviroment than local companies; talented staff, good work-life balance, culture of diversity

    Cons

    local strategy is not clear, what the staff received from the management team looks like we need to find something to do but just "work for work's sake". Might be a good story bottom-up, but is it really something the market/our audience need? Our product is less competative with local players, poor user experinces and bugs seldom taken care of. Staff are busy but a bit directionless, just doing what managers told us...

    Advice to Management

    There are indeed talented staff but lack of clear strategy seems a waste of people's time and talent. I'd suggest management team (not only local but global) be more open-mined to employee's voices, encourage free opinions and hear what they would like to convey, cause we really care and love the brand!

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While we are happy to hear that you enjoy the office space and lunch perks, we are disappointed to hear that your experience hasn’t been completely positive. Our London office is our regional EMEA headquarters for TripAdvisor. ...

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

    Pros

    Benefits, colleagues, free lunch, snacks, still freedom to work and reach targets.

    Cons

    Not clear how the managers have set the targets. You cannot make 19k per quarter on sponsored placements when you are in a totally different market than those who nearly achive it. Only achievers are awarded. Metrics are in their implementation phase. Becoming a call center. Since I have joined 5 people quit. It is not the place to make money with the bonus.

    Progressive, fun office environment with cool perks like free lunch, free on site gym with classes, dog friendly, special events, pub, etc. Exciting industry (travel) that permeates the office Approachable and friendly people

    Cons

    The company loves to promote transparency, but sometimes it is lacking across levels with the greater plan for areas of the business.

    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

    Amazing people to learn from and get inspiration. Loads of perks (Free lunch, snacks, Health and well-being benefit, Insurance options, Shares) Generous salary, compensation plan and kickers (bonuses for over achieving!) - With the move to quarterly commission pay outs you have the added flexibility of time to hit your targets! Hard work is definitely rewarded! Plenty of training and personal development -...

    Nothing comes to mind to be honest

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't need my advise. They ask for open and honest feedback from the team regularly. If changes are not working to the benefit of everyone, they want to know about it.

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

    Pros

    Compared to the previous company I worked for, this is like night and day. I feel like my team, organization, and broader TA as a whole all care about me as an employee and individual. There are lots of great perks that come with working in Needham, including travel and fitness benefits and free lunch.

    Cons

    Because TA is not a fledgling company anymore it cannot move as nimbly as smaller companies.

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

    Pros

    Free lunch once a week, good work life balance, great variety of snacks and drinks at the pantry, nice colleagues, best insurance coverage, great location, lots of fun events.... Overall the company has amazing perks

    Cons

    Not much career progress opportunity, a horrible manager who likes to micromanage yet doesn't really do much job and doesn't even know how to manage the team, very little amount of bonus

    Advice to Management

    HR should take employee's feedback seriously and take necessary actions otherwise all the good talents will be gone....I am so glad I don't have to deal with the unnecessary stress caused by my previous boss but there are some people who are still suffering from him and the company should help them out.
