Fabulous people & meaningful work

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at CouchSurfing

Pros

Wonderful co-workers, great pay & benefits, excellent food, puppy-friendly, great warehouse space in Potrero Hill.

Cons

You'll put on weight due to the excellent food!
A smaller team means that there is a lot of work to be done - work / life balance can sometimes suffer.

    Pros

    Amazing company culture, people, love, team.
    Work is really interesting, and there was a lot to improve, and build why was really exciting!
    The office is really cozy, feels like a huge living room with couches everywhere
    Company retreat every year

    Cons

    Really poorly managed by people that did NOT understand what CouchSurfing culture and idea really is.
    They're managing it heartlessly and kept firing and hiring all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good benefits package, dental health vision
    Lunch & dinner every weekday
    Unlimited paid time off (based on agreement with manager)

    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
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
