    Pros

    Everyone works hard, and with grit and determination makes sure that they get the job done no matter what it takes. Even through all this they are smiling and happy to learn and teach. I have never worked somewhere before where people are so open to both giving and receiving feedback without fear or expectation of some sort of backlash. Refreshing to have the oomph of a startup while also all the wheels are turning in the right direction at scale.

    Cons

    Quickly growing company - which is not all that bad except that we are running a bit tight on space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring people with emphasis on the 5 core values!

    I have been working at Algolia full-time

    Pros

    Algolia is a rare mix of a fantastically-positioned product and an amazing team behind it. From day one, the entire organization makes you feel at home and gives you autonomy in how you ramp up. The people here are hard-working, humble, and bring a variety of skillsets from diverse backgrounds. A few other items of note:

    -Ability to travel: This is a global company in a global market. The opportunity to travel to Paris, NYC, Atlanta, SF are a huge work perk!
    -Great benefits and work-life balance
    -The Leadership Team is top-notch. Everyone is approachable and willing to get involved to make individual contributors perform better.

    Cons

    This company could be a bit challenging for those who need constant structure. We're growing quickly and adaptability is key here.

    Other than that, come work here!

    Advice to Management

    Keep transparency and culture as a core part of the business. It is a huge differentiator that makes this company so fun to work for.

    I have been working at Algolia full-time

    Pros

    I spoke with the majority of the team multiple times and really got to understand the role and company culture. I had multiple opportunities to show the hiring team how I could provide value to the company.

    Cons

    The process was very time intensive. In addition to 5 phone screens and a half day onsite interview, I built and presented 2 event proposals for the interview.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to streamline this process. I can see the company losing great candidates due to the length of the interview process.

    I have been working at Algolia (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Algolia is a company founded on it's culture, which to me has been a refreshing change of pace. The focus really centers around the people and the product. Having worked in many different industries with a dynamic set of personalities, from the CEO down everyone is incredible intelligent and humble. The transparency within the company is also incredible. I'm very lucky to be part of such a fun loving, ambitious, and thoughtful team!

    Cons

    Naturally with any start up's there will always be growing pains. I wouldn't consider it a con, but it may be for some who aren't ready for or keen on the grit required to be part of a high growth start up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, I super excited to be part of the Algolia family and what it grow it a unicorn!
