    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Saint Louis, Missouri

    Health, dental, vision ins. Good plans. 401k and stock given upon hire (be aware that stock is figured in w/ overall compensation so they may barter with extra stock if you ask for more money but not necessarily give more "cash".) Good place for new dads - time off for birth of child. Unlimited PTO but that seems to be fading away with more monitoring of approved time off and more limitations.

    Unlimited vacation, full coverage healthcare package, lunch reimbursement up to $15 per day, 401K, RSUs.

    Great vacation policy for full-time employees. Also offers an ESPP with 15% discount which is great given the stocks performance.

    Benefits package seems good initially. But once inside the company it is really lackluster. 2 main things I observed: 1. Parental leave. Leave is 16 weeks which sounds good but actually is just a minimum standard for tech these days. Additionally I was surprised to find that taking any time on top of that (including job protected time) is strongly discouraged. Finally ongoing support for parents is non-existent. Of course you only find that out upon returning to work which is frustrating. 2. Unlimited PTO also sounds good upfront but turns out to be not great for a lot. First, it is very team dependent which can be frustrating if you’re specific lead has different policies than the rest of the company. Additionally while it’s really easy to get individual days off taking full weeks can prove difficult.

    This review is specifically for SF, though 90% of perks are the same across US offices. Best: Employee Stock Purchasing Program. RSUs. Flexible PTO (Management is very understanding of time off). Phenomenal Culinary team. Smoothie bar with ginger and wheatgrass shots. Medical benefits (I had a major surgery with a zero dollar deductible that cost only $100 total). Open and friendly culture. Large support for Women, LGBTQ, LatinX, etc. Colleagues are like family. Good: Office is open and clean, though it is starting to get crowded with all the growth. 401k is nice but it could match to a higher max. Competent C-Level Execs and Management. Frequent surveys for culture feedback. Fair: Ergo options for your desk - nearly impossible to get a standing desk these days. Actual salary is below average, but it made up for with the rapidly increasing stock price. Getting a significant raise can be difficult. Career pathing is complicated but getting better. Commuter benefits. Bad: No Education Reimbursements. Expense policy is fragmented. High valuation means high expectations from workers.

    Great stock offerings, but they just got a 401k plan this year and it's very elementary. Work food is reimbursable, and they're good about compensating overtime. Ample time off and work from home days. Managers are very understanding.

    16 weeks parental leave is good although becoming the standard in tech. Every company I interviewed at had this benefit or better. I wish the benefit took into account the actual health impact on woman and the time needed to recover so that the actual time that woman and men got “off” to bond with the baby (post health recovery) was equal. A lot of other tech companies have more options for birth mothers.
