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

Pros

They hire top talent, many of whom are fantastic to work with. Cutting edge and leading ideas means lots of change and a fast pace, but if you love to learn and grow this is a great place.

Cons

At times, I witnessed people burning out. While my direct manager was great to work with and helped prevent my burnout, that may not be the case in all situations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't try so hard to maintain "startup" status, when that's clearly in the past. Embrace a new culture that fits with the size and politics of the business. You've got GREAT people--utilize them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You own the culture--any cultural change starts with you. You need to truly understand that you're responsible for affecting change; its top-down. TripAdvisor has amazing products and really smart people. So, given the recent changes over the past year, instilling more gratitude into the day-to-day will go a long way to start to reform the culture--especially within key talent groups like product and engineering.
