Featured Review

Former Employee - Product Manager

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

Pros

Working on an awesome mission with like-minded, passionate folks. Leadership makes it easy to buy into the mission. Good transparency in decision-making and opportunities for open discussion/dissent.... Tons of autonomy to set priorities and deliver. Each team is in charge of their own roadmap and even their annual plan.

Cons

Lots of pressure on product managers to deliver, with less than ideal accountability on engineering for outcomes. Many re-orgs, so you have to be ok with change and chaos.

Advice to Management

More emphasis on training/grooming great managers to better support PMs.
