What Employees Say
I have been working at SendGrid full-time for more than 3 years
- culture and people are amazing, they challenge you and push you to be the best version of yourself. - decision making process is astounding for a company of our size. Product, finance and... engineering decisions are made in a very data-driven way. - Willing to discuss the hard topics and make the most informed decision. - Benefits are amazing, free lunch everyday is fantastic, i hope we don't lose this. - If you're motivated and willing to work hard, you can be recognized and tasked with more responsibility. I've seen many people grow their careers here and be promoted every year based on their performance and determination.
- typical pains related to integrating with Twilio after the acquisition in Feb of 2019. Most painful of which is the figuring out how we make decisions now as one larger company. (Twilio has less... process / standard way to make decisions, SendGrid has a formalized process). - The general energy of the company is lower now after the Twilio acquisition – still positive but now that we're not a standalone, public company, there appears to be less control over our business (email, email marketing) destiny. - Culture of Twilio, while close to SendGrid's, is definitely different and will take some time to feel part of one
Advice to Management
Keep working to make Twilio better by adopting and incorporating the best processes, people and systems across the two companies. There is a lot to learn from the employees at both companies that,... if implemented, could result in an awesome company.

*Great coworkers - people care about giving it their all, they're kind, and have a sense of humor *Room to grow in all directions - being a fairly small company means that if you're interested, it's... easy to get exposure to other parts of the organization and build an understanding of what other teams do. Cross-functional promotions are not uncommon. *Ongoing attention to keep benefits competitive (especially with major ones - medical, PTO, parental leave) *Overall, GutCheck is headed in a good direction - there is a lot that's been coming together in a really positive way over 2019
*Not really a con, but... like all companies, your manager has a huge impact on your experience, for better or worse. *Sometimes things feel like they're moving really fast, and sometimes things... feel like they're moving really slowly. It helps to have a high tolerance for that variability.
