    I have been working at Airbnb as a contractor

    Pros

    Great employee benefits
    Great culture - everyone here genuinely cares about you
    Great learning opportunities - there's lots of room to grow in Airbnb. You are always encouraged and welcomed to speak to your managers about growth and the best thing is that they are always supportive of that.
    An environment where every voice is heard .

    Cons

    None that I can think of at the moment

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Airbnb has an exciting vision for the travel industry. People are very friendly and warm. Leadership is ambitious and steers the company well.

    Cons

    The company is teething from a startup to a sustainably growing big company. This can lead to unexpected bottlenecks at times.

    I have been working at Airbnb full-time

    Pros

    It is one of the few companies out there who truly cares about the development of not just itself as a company but its culture and most importantly, its people. The founders and executive staff understand this and always have the culture and its people at the forefront of their minds. The commitment our employees here have to their work is truly inspiring and the encouragement you get from all your peers also drives and motivates you.

    Cons

    It is a young company and it is learning as it grows. There will always be teething problems and discrepancies when operating globally but more could be done to strengthen and empower the regions. It is a fast moving company in which we are constantly running and often times, it means learning on the ground which is overwhelming. Personally, I enjoy the learning curve and the challenges but the biggest pillar in this evolving environment was knowing that I have a supportive team behind me, ready and willing to support me.

    Advice to Management

    Never forget your employees no matter where they are. You've been magnificent and keep doing what you're doing. Do bear in mind, nevertheless, how little changes can affect the operating systems and structures in all regions. They are great improvements but more needs to be done than purely executing it out without consulting the wider regions. But most of all, thank you for building Airbnb.

    I have been working at Airbnb full-time

    Pros

    - Working with people that have the same goal, a clear vision and mission.
    - Multi cultural, diverse and interesting.
    - You feel like you are part of something big.
    - Empowering Founders that practice what they preach.
    - You feel like you are actually moving the needle every day, making an impact to this company that you truly believe in.

    Cons

    - For me, being with a fast moving organisation is a definite plus, though I can see this being a challenging place to work if you are used to a perfectly structured 9 to 5 place work environment. You have to live love and breathe Airbnb.
