    People here have a real passion for the growth and success of the company. A fun, friendly start up atmosphere. Lots of perks. A company that really care about the values they stand for.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little process driven and US centric but understandably so.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with transparency, you have some talented people on board.

    I worked at TripAdvisor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits, nicely furnished office, technology, training opportunities

    Cons

    Cut-throat environment, employees are numbers and are treated like disposable items. They will bleed you dry and when you have nothing left, they still ask for more. If you are on a managerial level, you are required to be available to take calls, answer emails etc on your days off or holidays, absolute lack of work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect they deserve

    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.
