    I worked at Meetup (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meetup is very mission-driven, and it attracts a lot of smart, motivated people who want to make a difference. The overall company culture is inclusive, collaborative, and approachable. People are open to discussion around improving product as well as improving processes and company culture.

    There's a lot of internal transparency around company metrics, finances, and what other product teams are working on.

    Work/life balance is great. Hours are fairly flexible, and remote work is a possibility depending on your team and situation. Good healthcare, 401K, and parental leave regardless of gender.

    Cons

    Meetup was founded in 2002, so there's a good amount of design & technical debt. There also isn't much documentation around why certain product decisions were made in the past. Recently Meetup has been dedicating a lot of resources to rectifying these issues, though, which will make them faster in the future.

    In terms of office environment: I love the open layout, but I wish there were more carpets, or dividers, or acoustical ceiling tiles—anything to reduce noise. I want to be able to have discussions at my desk without forcing my neighbors two aisles over to put on headphones, and vice versa.

    Learn How Meetup Broke up Their Boy's Club | Uncubed

    The consequences of tech's lack of gender balance can be seen everywhere from the Ellen Pao trial to Uber's latest scandal. But when New York's Meetup saw that their team was fast becoming a boy's club, they did something about it. We talked to Erin Dertouzos, Meetup's Head of Talent and Culture, to learn how they changed.

    How Meetup Ditched Its Boys Club

    In three years, Meetup transformed its management team?-?and the company. Here's how. W hen Sheryl Sandberg published Lean In in 2013, Meetup CEO Scott Heiferman ordered several dozen copies. On March 11?-?publication day?-?his female employees spilled off the elevator into the company's light-filled Soho headquarters and found that they'd all received an email from Heiferman, inviting them to pick up copies of the book.
