Perk policies are generally excellent. Breakfast/lunch/dinner on-site (a main cafeteria and the delicious Wise Sons deli) - watch out for the 'Square 15' :). Unlimited vacation policy and flexible work from home days.
Best - 401K, ESPP, RSUs Pros/Cons (TL:DR) - it's how you see it! * Their salaries offerings are slightly less as compared to SF standards * Free food apparently (Breakfast - $1 after 9AM, Lunch - Free, you only taxes, Dinner (after 7pm) - Free, you only taxes). Every other Friday is a "Famine Friday" (means lunch is not provided) * Food is healthy but If you are don't eat meat or don't like American food (you are in a trouble). * It's a company of hard-working people so if you are the flexible work/personal life types then you are probably better off negotiating this in your offer. WFH is not generally encouraged unless you have established good employee reputation and negotiated with your manager. * For Caltrain commuters, they don't provide a shuttle bus. Civic Centre Bart station is 7mins walk away * Very open culture is encourage - from open seating, copying entire company on emails to looking up anyone's calendar anytime. * If you love to read and write, Square would be your dream company! Documentation is core to company's culture, we all become writers here overtime. It's common for 8-week status report outs to run 40-80 pages. It's probably fair to say each employee might be spending about 6- 8 hours in a week on Google Docs. Become a pro at G-suite before you join.
The best perk is unlimited PTO
The insurance at Square is amazing. It's hands down the thing I miss most since I left. There used to be an unlimited time off policy, but it was starting to become a lot more restricted and very hard to get time off. I wasn't even told I could have off for my wedding with 6 months advance notice. This was hands down the reason I left.
Great benefits for commuting, health and wellness, meals and food, vacation time, health insurance, and more.
Great health insurance, one plan is covered 100% by Square which is amazing.
They pay for most of your insurance, unlimited PTO (or so they say). "Free lunch" cool offices and work spaces.
Incredibly good benefits package. Did not have to pay a principle or monthly fee. Deduction was low. Received health care and co-pays at reasonable costs. The only downside is that they do not match 401k contributions, which is surprising.
Love the food, but for 401k they only match to a certain percentage
Square is mindful of people of all backgrounds and experiences. As the company is growing and starting new offices, they ensure everyone gets fair benefits.
