I have been working at Buffer full-time (More than 3 years)
Living and learning by company values, transparent culture, fluid movement within the company (in many areas - we're working on making this more company-wide!), remote working and support for family integration into work life, generous family leave policy
As a "young" company, we're learning and growing constantly and have experienced many different "phases" of our journey: self-management style, hyper-growth to more organic growth, etc. This keeps things interesting but can be tough for some.
Advice to Management
Opportunities for professional growth among all employees (management included)
These guys have a reputation for doing stunts about hiring as a way to generate buzz for their platform, not actually having available jobs or hiring top talent. I have a good reputation, credentials, and they cynically sent me a sarcastic no reply email. That's when I knew they weren't sincere and just feeling the market. A few years later, it turns out the natural growth engine of the company (the luck) is now waning off, and they're letting people go. So even the few mediocre B and C level devs that laid low and didn't pose a political threat to managers are seeking other work now. Time wasters, insincere. Low skill and intimidated by true talent for sure.
