Pros

Amazing environment, very talented peers, good compensation packages (equity heavy) and very rewarding work.

Cons

The company is growing really fast so sometimes there is the feeling of us being stretched too thin working on too many things at the same time.

Advice to Management

More clarity around what the focus should be and what projects to cut would be beneficial for the company.

    Pros

    Square is the perfect balance between large, established company and fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants startup. It has the culture and energy of the latter and the perks and momentum of the former. Working with this many smart, passionate, well-meaning people is a true gift.

    Cons

    In the past things were a bit chaotic -- they still are, but we've gotten better at focus. We could still do more.

    Advice to Management

    Letting poor performers go is hard. We need to learn to be better.

  2. Great environment

    Pros

    Frontline of the best technology. Amazing work environment. Can't beat the food. perks. and location. Autonomous work setting, great for the entrepreneurial type of person. Not a place to have your hand held; take the initiative.

    Cons

    Growing so fast - not really a con but need to be able to handle change.
