Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Engineering Manager

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

Pros

Great vision, transparent leadership, collaborative culture, diversity

Cons

I cannot think of any cons at the moment

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).
