Current Employee - Forward Deployed Engineer

I have been working at Palantir Technologies full-time

Pros

People are great and passionate about work. Smart and hardworking people who are also nice, good at communicating, and fun.

Cons

No 401k matching, company is reducing benefits as they go public

Former Employee - Operations Supervisor

I worked at Airbnb full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- Great Benefits - Creative, driven, and hard working colleagues - Global teams = diverse perspectives - Focused on growth mindset leadership - Great for beginning and mid career growth.

Cons

- Since it's global, it never "shuts off" - meetings can sometimes be early or late in the day - Extremely fast paced, decisions sometimes made w/o consults, or decision not made because too many... "cooks in the kitchen" - If you are outside of the SF offices, it can be sometimes hard to connect with other staff.

Advice to Management

Please continue to focus on diverse hiring, more women, LGBTQIA+, and POC in leadership roles (including the board and all the way up to E-Staff).
