What people are saying about Stripe

I need help. I started in ad sales and moved on to marketing operations. Some time later I realized I was not making enough money and decided to leave my company. This is when I realized I lack the typical skill set and software knowledge for marketing ops at other companies. I feel like I’ve been basically wasting my time at my previous company. Managed a career change and an awesome op at Stripe to get laid off a year later. I Honestly don’t know what kind of roles to apply for now?

    The work is very high impact and there are lots of opportunities to learn if you're not already familiar with the fintech space. Most of the big projects I've been on so far have been fun to work on. There are also a lot of talented, kind, and helpful engineers at Stripe who are really nice to learn from. I really enjoy my manager and the folks on my team. The money + bonuses are ~ok~. Pretty standard for a pre-IPO unicorn, but the goal is that there will be a big pay off later (fingers crossed).


    - The work life balance is *bad*. For how many products Stripe has, we are a very lean company. Too lean. There's just a lot of work, and very very tight deadlines, very fast paced, and not enough engineers and product managers to do all of it. If you want WLB as an engineer, join an infrastructure team, not a product team. - There is little to no investment in making the engineering org more diverse. This was surprising to me because of a lot of public facing company statements, but don't be fooled like I was. People (at least in the eng org) do not care about diversity. - HR sucks. And of course they would, I guess. But I had a really negative experience with HR where I walked away feeling completely devalued and gaslit. - Dev environments kinda suck and make the work a lot slower than it should be.

      Negative Experience
      Difficult Interview


      Asked to do 3 communications that were at least a week worth of work before I even got to panels. They were looking for free work. Very unimpressed. They were clear they had terrible WLB.

      They asked me to do 3 projects before I even got to panels. ridiculous.
