    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    TripAdvisor has great profit sharing, great compensations in respect to the Ottawa market, and cool benefits like catered lunches and reembursal programs for transit. The office environment is medium sized, about 30 engineers and sports an open format, so you really get to know everyone. People are friendly and willing to help and generally, there isn't much people stepping on top of others, at least in engineering.

    Cons

    High expectations, sometimes stressful because release is weekly. Since this office is a virtual office, communicating with HQ and always being in the loop is a challenge. Things move very quickly at TripAdvisor.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize the work so that communication does not pose as barrier. Would be nice to match some of the benefits that HQ gets, ie. gym, full weekly catering, and parking passes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at TripAdvisor in May-2013.

    Interview

    Long (4 mois), RH, Manager puis plusieurs personnes de l’équipe, entretien avec VP.
    Bon processus mais pas très organise et long. Dommage car certains candidats ne prendront pas le temps d'attendre la reponse des RH pour les autres entretiens
