    Pros

    Working on a dynamic atmosphere
    Good perks, travelling, pool, ping pong table, nice office
    Working with really smart people
    Gym and swimming pool
    Weekly Happy hours

    Cons

    Not many perks as other Airbnb locations no food program in Singapore

    Hyper hiring and hyper Growing environment where sometimes the culture is lost due to this growth

    Easy to get distracted at the office and not flexible compare to other Airbnb locations as in Europe where working from home is allowed

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the growing affect the culture. Allow working from home to be productive as other good companies do.

    Pros

    Good benefits with opportunity to travel to offices around the world. Ability to work in a young multi-national company with lots of potential for growth...

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Must be prepared to put in long hours at work and over the weekend. Too many time-consuming meetings and reports.

    Advice to Management

    Open your heart and mind so as to be objective and impartial. Do not always listen to the majority as they may not be truthful.
