Current Employee - Marketing Manager

I have been working at Spotify full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I've been working at Spotify since more than 3 years in the Premium team - a team that focuses on driving Premium subscriptions. It's been three amazing years even if things have been changing a... lot: Spotify knows some growing pains, there is a lot of politics (the leads are trying to address that but it's not gonna be easy) and it's now become a pretty big organization where things tend to move pretty slow. Overall, working at Spotify has been a great experience: it's super flexible, I can work from home whenever I want, I even work sometimes from Europe (where I'm from), there is no micro management and I feel I have room to grow in my position and my work-life balance is great (and I'm encouraged to keep it healthy). Also, there are loads of opportunities to move internally, but most of the time inside the same orgs. I like the vision of the company and the leads: it's progressive and even if sometimes it takes time (sorry: ages!), they tend to take into account their employees feedbacks: less plastic in the offices, better food, reduce our carbon footprint (a great way to save money as well..), promoter gender and race equality etc.

Cons

- The reward process is not transparent. - Over performing / working more than the average doesn't mean you'll get a reward, you'll most probably have to really fight to get it - and that doesn't... mean you'll get it. - The reward packages are not super interesting. - There is not a lot of horizontal career moves from an org to another (from Premium to Content for example).

Advice to Management

Would be great if you can improve the career moves between orgs, give employees a better understanding of what positions they could pretend to, and really help them a lot more to make their ways to... jobs they're interested in, rather than only letting them "apply" directly. That would make internal applications more democratic. Today, if you know someone, you'll get more insights about a position and will have more chances to get it. Helping employees internally by letting them all get the same insights about a position no matter who they know would really put them all on an equal footing. Please improve the reward packages with more stock options / RSUs, it would make employees feel definitely more involved in the company. Tiny stock / RSU packages don't help and are given too unusually. Otherwise keep the good work!
