    I have been working at Confluent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Full disclosure that I've only recently joined Confluent but this is already unlike anything I've seen in my (lengthy) career. It is the real deal. Wickedly smart, technically astute, and highly empathetic leaders who engage like actual humans. Ridiculously compelling product-market fit. Off the charts run-rate. The culture and values are role modeled at the top and clearly cascade down. It's worth calling out that the team is highly distributed, so while there's a company headquarters based in the Bay Area, there's also a full office in the city, so people don't have to commute unless desired. The same is true for people working remotely from home or in small, growing enclaves where Confluent is using WeWork offices until there's critical mass. Bottom line though, it's not a "you must be in the office" culture and that is refreshingly pragmatic.

    Cons

    Like any startup growing ridiculously quickly, many things are struggling to keeping pace with the swift rate of growth. We outgrown our HQ, parking is tight, snacks, coffee, and parts of lunch sometimes run out, etc. However we're moving into a ridiculous new headquarters, taking over a parking garage, and hiring on new workplace/facilities people to help keep up. Patience on the little things is required, but the intent is positive and execution gets there eventually.

    I have been working at Confluent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Great opportunity in the market - feels like right place, right time -Lot of scope to do your job, and more if you are interested - there is so much to get involved in -Hard working team globally -Frequent direct communication from executive leadership at HQ via All Hands team meeting every two weeks -Generous company - great swag for hires and at events, AirPods when we hit 500 employees, paying to get the entire global team together once per year face to face, loads of office snacks and drinks, team building culture events and more -

    Cons

    -Everyone is moving so quickly, sometimes people join and are not fully clear on their role and responsibilities - can be confusing for the new joiner and the team already in place -Things change quickly all the time - if you want a defined role and want to "keep in your lane" this is not the place for you -Many processes and policies not in place yet, sometimes this can be confusing -Feels like sometimes there is too much bureaucracy or office politics that flows beneath the surface and is not acknowledged outright -It is very HQ focused and much of the leadership is located in Silicon Valley, depending on role, you may need to put in overtime to be available for meetings with members there.
