Featured Review

Former Contractor - Facilities Coordinator

I worked at AppDynamics for more than a year

Pros

The diversity and willingness to listen to everyone and care about setting up the team for success.

Cons

None worth mentioning except limited small conference rooms and recycling needs to be reinforced

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Square full-time for more than a year

Pros

Square cares about its employees. Competitive compensation and benefits. Internal reviews were well organized. Company seemed to have clear direction, rather than impulsively changing future plans.

Cons

I liked working from the Square HQ office. There was a real sense of team and camaraderie in the office, although it can be a sprawling company. It seems like there is less focus on going into the... office now. We'll see how that pans out for them.
