Featured Review

Current Employee - Advertising Sales Director

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

Pros

Smart going into the pandemic, strong coming out. The company made some VERY tough decisions in April /May 2020 but we've weathered the storm for the most part and are now coming out stronger and... with a more focused team the other side. Commitment to employee welfare, diversity and inclusion is strong and the culture is the best I've ever come across. A CEO who genuinely cares about the company and its employees and will also do anything in his power to ensure success flows down.

Cons

Travel in a pandemic was never going to be an easy sell but we're over the worst now. Need to re-establish ourselves now as the market leader in travel and lifestyle

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing - but remember to build back with secure foundations and that includes more staff as we now look to take on more clients.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Close full-time

Pros

Remote working is the future and it's great to find a company that embraces it so fully. Schedules are flexible and as long as the work gets done, nobody really minds when you work. I've met... people from all over the world, and twice a year we all get together in the same place. Everyone cares about the product and the business, and are truly some of the best at what they do. The hiring process is rigorous but it has to be to enable the company culture and ensure people can work together well. They would rather accept the "right" person for the company than the "best" person in the field. Everyone is a little bit mad :)

Cons

If you've never worked remotely before it would be a challenge to adapt. It's also difficult to structure your day around certain meetings due to the differences in timezones. I've found myself... working later and later. The benefits offered are great but only if you live in the US. There is no healthcare, dental or 401k otherwise.
