    Pros

    This company take good care of its employees. It is easy to see as many employees are staying many years. Plus, there are a lot of benefits, and an amazing office with a LOT of snacks. Love it! It seems to be a good place to work for new mums as well, as they are quite flexible. Oh, and they organise amazing parties. Too bad most of the employees aren't really joining...

    Cons

    Unfortunately all good stuff comes with bad! It seems that there are not much opportunities to progress career-wise. You can easily work across other teams, but not really go at the top, so don't bother looking up! Some people are leaving the company hoping to come back to a higher position, as this way seems more accessible than within the company, which is a big shame.

    Advice to Management

    Spot the people with high ambition and motivation! They have a lot to give, and are only looking to learn more, develop themselves through work, and gain higher responsibilities. Unfortunately, even if the courses are great, they are not giving this opportunity to evolve and put the knowledge in practise.

    People who work here are passionate about what they do. Great opportunity for personal development and growth as long as you keep up! A great, fun place to work with excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Its a "hit the ground running" organisation so if you're looking for classroom training forget it! However ongoing, on the job training is excellent

    I worked at TripAdvisor full-time

    Pros

    You will work with very clever people and learn a lot. You always have to keep up to date on everything which is great. Management gives you quite a lot of freedom. Nice perks such as free gym membership.

    Cons

    Very high goals : as in most of very successful companies, goals are high which is normal. However, on my last year they became unrealistic which tends to demotivate people a lot. Not the most social place : even if most of the people are nice, the atmosphere is not great. People rarely see each other outside of work and when there is an event organized by the social team, not even half of the employees are coming.

    Advice to Management

    Goals should be high but remain reachable. Please make the place more sociable.
