I worked at CouchSurfing full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Here are some of the good things about this company:
Great Chef
Great Office
Good Pay
Awesome product
Talented Team
Phenomenal Passionate Community

Cons

Here are some of the things I did not like:
Lack of Clear direction
Upper Management takes no Responsibility: blames, fire and rehire.
The last two years the new Management TOTALLY 'missed the boat'

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take responsibility of your fault and stop blaming all us employees that had trouble keeping up with lack of direction all the time.

    I worked at CouchSurfing full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Definitely 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 ManagementAdvice

    Please 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.

    I worked at CouchSurfing part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Great food
    - Friendly people
    - Didn't feel like you were a slave to the man
    - Chill, open vibe

    Cons

    All of the pros were remnants of the previous regime. Capital ruined this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency rules all.
