    Pros

    Best company i ever worked for. People genuinely care.

    Cons

    Not for the dispassionate, if you want it easy, this is not the company for you

    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good benefits package and plenty of useful amenities - free lunch twice a week
    - Dog friendly office which has been very popular with staff and makes for a great office environment
    - Stronger communication on key changes than before, something the company is learning to improve at
    - Great vibe and generally a good office, with good people

    Cons

    - London is not head office - this causes frustrations for some in terms of autonomy and where major decisions are made but there is a need to be realistic
    - Business is going through a period of change which can be a little difficult, but it is a necessary review of the structure of the teams that make up our business

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing in terms of communication. Let non-Needham staff get involved in decision making as much as possible.

    I worked at TripAdvisor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beloved brand
    Looks good in your CV
    Good benefits

    Cons

    No career progression. Impossible to grow internally in your or different areas of the London office.
    Many teams are also shrinking due to years of poor company performance
    No transparency from upper management (even though they claim they are by holding many co. meetings and forming task force groups to tackle the obvious company issues).
    Poor management. Genuine leaders with good intentions get nowhere. You have to be a narcissistic game player to progress and be good at managing up not down
    Most of the best colleagues I worked with have already left
    HR is only visible for admin functions and to give promotions to themselves
    Company is too US centric and mostly playing catch up with its products. Lack of original ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Yes, I did share these thoughts and more on my exit interview. I hope you take these seriously and get back to be the company you once were. Good luck!

    I worked at TripAdvisor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    TripAdvisor has a solid and well implemented vision. It is a global organisation with a strong leadership team, excellent career progression opportunities and the provision of education and training courses is also commendable. They have very smart people working across the world.

    Cons

    However they do have a limited scope of interest and resources to grow in emerging markets. The transition to an booking platform model has been inefficient and largely unsuccessful.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Bring the Human in Human Ressources

    Pros

    Good Benefits, nice location, good to have in your cv.

    Cons

    Poor Management.
    HR support bullism. It took 3 people leaving before take action against a manager who didn't have management skills. This "manager" grew up in TripAdivosr , which means without any other work experience

    Advice to Management

    Take more action listening to feedback

    Pros

    Global Company gives you access to different languages, countries and individuals. Very diverse working environment.
    Amazing Benefits that cannot be found elsewhere.
    A lovely and friendly working environment

    Cons

    Can be considered US central, with not all perks being available to the other smaller offices around the globe. Can be very fast pace as well as a little overwhelming to start with, however everyone does help with this transition

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing quarterly and yearly reviews, focus on developing your team instead of the negative aspects.

    I worked at TripAdvisor full-time

    Pros

    Colleagues, environment, perks, office space, parking and the occasional staff party. Good for the short term or as a stop gap.

    Cons

    It completely lost it's culture due to Senior Management not listening and lacking compassion. Autonomy and decision making comes from the US. Lack of development and career progression.

    Advice to Management

    The bean counters need to listen to their employees more, then they won't have such high staff turnover and create such a toxic environment.

    Pros

    You can meet some great people there... or not anymore because they all left.

    Cons

    EMEA office fells like an outsourcing company that only cares about numbers and not about people. No room for growth unless you are a backstabber or you have no dignity.
