"Fair work/life balance. Generally men and women are treated equally, but it really depends on the group you are in and who your manager is."

"The company is generally supportive of women, but attitudes of individual employees run the full spectrum. You may not be asked for your opinion in meetings, but speak up and you'll generally be heard."

"Do not hesitate to speak up. There can be a lot of egos in the room but it's like breaking glass -- once you put your word in, people will listen. It's unfortunate to have to deal with it."

"There are very few women in the office and no programs designed to support women, informal or otherwise."

"Love working here and hard work truly pays off in the end. Have seen many promotions over the course of my 5 years here."

"Maternity leave should be better for a company of this size. The perks are good, but you're expected to put in a solid 8-10 hours in the office, so if you come in late because of dropoff, plan to stay late. Hard to work from home on a regular basis."
"Been here for less than one year. Good benefits compared to other tech companies. Specifically, 401K matching, career development opportunities, ability to work from home, paid maternity leave, rooms to pump, etc. In the Product org there's a bit of a "boys club" feeling in upper management, which can make it hard to network at times."
"Good benefits. Maternity leave standard FMLA policy. Company supports 6-8 weeks paid and additional 4 weeks paid as part of family leave policy plus generous sick time that can be used towards leave. Male dominated management."
"Lots of female leadership- Head of Talent Acquisition, CMO, CFO, VP of Sales , VP of Engineering all are women."
"Great work-life balance"
"If you are in the technology/engineering/sales/marketing departments then it may be good career path. If you're working in the back office (finance, legal, hr) it is just average."
"Very few women in senior leadership roles may left me feeling like I didn't have many strong role models within the organization. However, I did feel that the opinions of women were valued across most areas in the organization. The work life balance is great!"
"Work/life balance is good and the company is very supportive of its employees in general. Sideways movements are encouraged, but it's pretty hard for anyone to get promoted."
"It's a good company to work for, but it's undeniable that men do better here. I think that's due to a lack of diversity (gender, race, and background) -- the company as a whole is diverse, but there are "pink ghettos" where all the women and minorities are found, and workers are paid thousands less. We're a media company, but engineering and product are the "golden children" where the real opportunities and money are found. Also, I left my previous department after being mommy-tracked. I'm grateful for the chance to move to a new team, but I'm now trying to get my career back on track."
"I've worked here for a long time (7 years) and have seen the company grow from <400 employes to >1,500. A lot has changed since it went public and not necessarily for the better. One thing that has been consistent is the poor annual merit based increases (maximum is 3%), which they try to get away with by providing quarterly bonuses that are based on personal and business goals. I know from speaking with my peers at other companies that TripAdvisor pays on the lower end of the scale. Depending on the department, it's very hard to get a promotion unless you have surpassed everything in your role for several years. It's definitely not a place for a 9-5 job, and cannot imagine how any parent can juggle working here and deliver 150%. You definitely learn a lot and you have the opportunity to work with some very bright people. It's a good springboard to further your career, but not long term."
"I worked there for over 3 years and in that time was treated with respect from my peers and managers, however was not treated that way in terms of promotions and raises. Although I always out performed my peers, my raises were consistently disappointing at less than $1 per hour per year. There was room for advancement, but no matter how many doors I tried, management did not care. After taking maternity leave I came back to a chaotic group that was mismanaged (having switched managers) and decided that was enough. It wasn't worth putting my baby in day care for."
