Speechless...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsNice people, handmade chef meal for lunch and dinner, spacious fun office, competitive compensation.

ConsDefinitely capital ruined this place. Bunch of employees got fired suddenly including people just got hired within a month. I don't think this company has clear vision and strategy to generate revenue to pay back to VC unfortunately.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease do not forget there are actual people who love doing Couchsurfing all over the world. This is about being curious, making a connection and giving them more than you took.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
