    Excellent company culture, great place to work - if you're a developer.

    Pros

    Meetup has an excellent culture; everyone on the team is extremely friendly, and dedicated to the product and the mission. Benefits are right on par for a company that targets staff in their 20s and 30s: free beer/soda/bottled tea, 401k matching, 3 month sabbatical program for long-term employees, 3 weeks vacation per year plus summer Fridays and personal holidays. Very much an organization full of people who enjoy each others' company, and working collaboratively. Atmosphere is fairly laid-back; nobody ever raises their voice.

    Management is good at recognizing individuals' strengths and giving people opportunities to shine. Because of the leadership structure, there's little room for career advancement, but this is made up for by many opportunities for personal professional development.

    Cons

    Very little consideration is given to the preferences and opinions of teams other than development. Senior management walks an awkward line by presenting an outward "mentor not manager" attitude while making clumsy, invasive, heavy-handed decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management does not always seem to have a realistic take on the success of the product, or the problems experienced by the users.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Meetup.

    Interview Details

    About three weeks after I applied for the position, I received a call to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview went well so they invited me to the office for an in-person interview later on that week. I met with three employees individually and the format was more conversational than formal. The overall feel of the office is relaxed and friendly. Everything went great, but a week later I received an email that they decided to pursue other candidates. I asked for feedback but never heard anything, so my best guess is that my experience did not exactly line up with what they wanted.
