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

Pros

The food is phenomenal

The office is open and airy, with swings, ping pong table, and plants/trees

A really cool platform that creates a great community

Cons

More than one mass layoff and several other firings made for a company culture where employees wonder whether they would also suddenly find themselves unemployed one day

Revenue model ideas that changed on a weekly basis made for uncertainty

Doesn't Recommend

Disapproves of CEO

    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 part-time (less than a 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.
