Hi all! I am going to join TripAdvisor in Portugal, Lisbon soon. Could you share some feedback about how it works in TripAdvisor in the Lisbon location? In the current hiring freezes and layoffs, does trip advisor still relocate to the USA from Portugal? What are the chances of relocation? Thank you!

I worked at Tripadvisor for 8 years- in that time I saw a ton of development, mentorship & support to help me progress in my career. The people culture is great with most being great fun & willing to pitch in and pull together. My experience was that you have the opportunity to progress upwards or in to other roles, if you are proactive in reaching out across the business to learn more. The company focus on inclusion is really strong, some leaders dedicating real time to drive this across the culture of the business
The company can try to move fast for it's size- this can cause a breakdown in communications with a matrixed organisation and parallel teams. You have to be able to work around this and pivot quickly. In the last couple of years I felt there was some ambiguity around the business value prop/overall mission- making it less engaging for everyone without clear sight of what was trying to be achieved. European & APAC based employees would often have to flex to adjust to American employee working hours- meant late nights most weeksTripadvisor Response5mo

Great Tech Great work / life balance in most BUs Above average pay Bonus People in TAPs BU (bar American management globally)
Outdated business model - barely anyone under 40s uses the site let alone leaves reviews. New CEO hired a well known external consultancy at a huge cost and output was to be a 'mobile first' company. Senior management in certain BU are more interested in rewarding personal friendships then doing whats right for the business. Business pretends to be have a global approach but in reality is a US driven business that applies the same strategy globally. Text book US company behaviour.1Tripadvisor Response5mo

Working with some of the smartest people in the tech business. Fast paced environment and delivering results. Great offices, equipment and comp package.
US centric. Toxic culture and emotional bullying (during COVID / recovery in some departments), high pressure (a pro for some), some unsociable working hours to keep in the loop and participate in east / west US coast meetings.Tripadvisor Response5mo
