Very nicely put TripAdvisor, if I needed a job, or the money I would be very tempted, your empoyees must be a very happy bunch of loyal people…. Let’s see what they have to say about their “Boss” TripAdvisor.. 

What Past and Present TripAdvisor employee’s are saying about TripAdvisor..

  • Discourages innovation, runs like a factory
  • Few opportunities for growth or promotion
  • The environment is TOXIC and OPPRESSIVE
  • Worst leadership I’ve seen in my entire career
  • Unfriendly, unprofessional and rude – starts at the top, and has trickled down to all levels
  • Outmaneuvering your coworkers has a higher value than honesty and integrity
  • Honestly some of the most unfriendly/hostile management I’ve ever encountered
  • Zero career path

WTF!!!..  TripAdvisor, that a 180 on what you claim!!

So, it seems it’s not just Establishment and Business owners TripAdvisor maniputate, employees, both past and current seem to ALL agree.. TripAdvisor is a fucked up shit hole!!.. Or as a FORMER employee put it.. ” Get off your high horses – you’re not God, you’re responsible for a mid-sized travel company out in the burbs of Boston

There is also a LOT of advice both past and current employees have for the TripAdvisor’s Senior Management here are just few..

Advice to Senior Management – If this were an easy solution, the best people in the company wouldn’t be leaving in droves in this economy and with all the perks, pay and benefits. The company is a dysfunctional, tangled mess with a dismal future. Maybe start by scrapping the second level mgt and hire some less ego-inflated executives that have a track record of managing well (note: I did not say “micro” managing well) and making solid decisions that actually make sense. Wake up and appreciate & trust your talent. Then start innovating and create an actual product roadmap of your own (vs solely riding the coattails of Facebook). It is way too late to make the same “safe” decisions that have kept you going the past decade. Stop being so smug and closed minded – if you were actually as smart as you think you are the company wouldn’t be in the embarrassing state its in! The rot on the inside can only be hidden from the outside world for so long.
Advice to Senior Management – To the CEO: I think it would serve you and the company well to go around and re- interview some of your lower-level employees. I have to believe that you just don’t realize how things are operating. To the rest of you: Lose the Machiavellian tactics. Alternatively, if you’re just going to manage through fear, manipulation and dictatorship don’t waste so much time with the interview / hiring process — just about anybody will do.
Advice to Senior Management – Get off your high horses – you’re not God, you’re responsible for a mid-sized travel company out in the burbs of Boston. This ‘aint Goldman Sachs…actually, I know senior people at Goldman Sachs that have less attitude than you. Sometimes, why don’t you trust your employees instead of micromanaging them to within an inch of their lives. Act like leaders, not dictators. And to the head honcho – i think you’re cool but make sure you reign in some of your direct reports and get them acting like decent human beings rather than tyrants.

Here are a few NOT so happy  current and former employee reviews about their boss.

We are a small group of 9 people that are tired of the way TripAdvisor chooses to conduct their business, mainly because of the total lack of consideration towards “owners” in the hospitality world. We are based in the USA, Europe and New Zealand.
