Mission: To create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living.

WeWork – Why Work With Us?


The We Company’s mission is to elevate humanity’s consciousness. Our global platform reimagines and positively impacts how we work, live and grow through three distinct business lines:

  • WeWork’s mission is to create a world where people work to make a life not just a living
  • WeLive’s mission is to build a world where no one feels alone
  • WeGrow’s mission is to unleash every human’s superpowers

Through design, technology, and hospitality we are creating a community that helps people live life with purpose and have a meaningful impact in the world. The We Company began in 2009 and has grown to more than 400,000 members. In less than ten years, we’ve built a global network of 400 locations across 100 cities and nearly 30 countries, and we’re just getting started.

What’s amazing about WeWork is that it can’t exactly be touched—it’s a feeling.

When you join the WeWork team, what you do becomes a part of who you are. As a company, we work hard, play hard, and celebrate the moments in between.

WeWork is a collection of thousands of amazing stories, each anchored by our members’ purpose and dedication to pursuing their life’s work. As a team, it’s our job to elevate our members and help them achieve more as part of our community than they could on their own.

The values that guided our founders when they were opening our first location are the same values that guide our team today.

Inspired

We do what we love and are connected to something greater than ourselves.

Entrepreneurial

We are creators, leaders, and self-starters. We try new things, we challenge convention, and we’re not afraid to fail.​​​​​​​

Authentic

We are genuine to our brand, mission, and values. We’re not perfect and we don’t pretend to be. We are, though, always honest and as transparent as we can be. 

Tenacious

We never settle. We get sh*t done and we get it done well. We’re persistent and knock down walls—literally if we have to.

Grateful

We are grateful for each other, our members, and to be part of this movement. We don’t take success for granted. We’re happy to be alive.

Together

We are in this together. This is a team effort. We always look out for one another. We value empathy; we know we’re all human, and know we can’t do any of this alone.

Diverse Global Community

Better Together

The foundation of WeWork is community. Bringing people together is not only what we do for our members—it’s what we do for our employees. Our longtime traditions like Summit (when we bring the entire company together to plan the year ahead) are all about coming together. And our all-hands meetings let us connect each month with our coworkers from around the world. By spending time with each other, experiencing life together, we feed off of each others’ energy and feel more deeply connected to one another.

Leading with Positivity

We strive to be an example of the future we wish to create—one where we support and encourage each other, and embrace our differences. We invite teammates to be their authentic selves at work. We believe that choosing positivity over negativity for every interaction can change the way we collectively feel as people. It’s in the small moments we share—exchanging a smile, saying hello in the elevator, or having a coffee in the common area—that mean the most. We know this is sometimes a hard journey, but we’re happy to be on it together.

Employee Community Groups​​​​​​​

Our ECGs are grassroots efforts that have become core to our culture. They bring our community around the world closer together to share their diverse experiences. These employee-led groups serve as a resource for team members by fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with WeWork’s mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WeWork.

    Interview

    I had three interviews over zoom. After each interview I got a form letter asking me to send my availability for the next interview. Each time, I got the invitation the day before the interview (quite a few days after I submitted my availability). The lack of lead time was a bit of a red flag to me. Each interview went well, and after my third interview I got an email from someone else (not my main point of contact) to schedule a phone call. I gave him my availability but he never set up a time. I ended up missing his phone call because I wasn't expecting it, but I called him back and left a voicemail. Never heard back. Followed up a week later. Never heard back. Emailed my point of contact a few days later. Never heard back. I emailed them both today and I doubt I will hear back.

    There's enough about WeWork in the news that part of me thinks it's more the work culture and the higher-ups than the recruiters themselves, but this is really a horrible way to treat people, especially during a pandemic!
