What Employees Say
I have been working at Pinterest full-time for more than 3 years
Smartest and kindest people I've ever worked with; Best leadership I've ever worked with; a mission that you can truly feel good about; a brand and product that is loved; a flexible work environment,... but one where everyone is engaged and committed to doing a great job, an exciting future; a place that truly cares about inclusion
Frequent changes to our strategy and organization... which is normal for a company at our stage and can present good opportunities, but does require a mindset that is accepting and able to... adapt/change
Advice to Management
Continue your amazing transparency and keep doing the right thing even when its hard. I respect our leadership because I truly believe they are great people; don't ever let that change
I have been working at Asana full-time for more than 8 years
There's a lot of hard and interesting work to do, largely driven by our growth and the fact that the problem still isn't solved. Company leadership is competent and open, and this trickles down to... the company having a high degree of trust throughout. This means that my day to day work at Asana feels very collaborative, whether I'm working with people directly on my team or elsewhere in the company; and even in the strongest disagreements I have with colleagues, it's quite clear that everyone is trying to do what's best for Asana and our customers, and we're just disagreeing about the best way to do this. On top of all this, I really enjoy working at a company whose business model is to build a great product and sell it, rather than being (e.g.) advertising based.
There have been a number of times when we've been too clever -- doing either engineering or planning in an "Asana" way, only to have to learn the hard way why things are normally done differently. We... say that one of our engineering principles is simplicity, but this is something that doesn't come naturally, and we still need to work on it.
