    I have been working at DoorDash full-time

    Pros

    The company has a very dynamic and open culture. What is more important DoorDash cares to maintain this culture and works hard to hire the right people with the right attitude. People are willing to both listen and to share knowledge and ideas. The compensation is fair. Also, a lot of efforts is being made to create an inclusive and diverse environment. Finally, there is a lot of smart and talented people here at the...

    Cons

    This is a very young company "age-wise", so you might run into situations when meetings are scheduled late at night, which parents with kids wouldn't do. However, even that is manageable because of the Pros described above.

      Pros

      Lots of room to grow and a great atmosphere. The staff is great and the company sponsored outings are awesome! Great for gaining some great experience in the start-up industry!

      Cons

      Not a great work-life balance and the diversity is not so great. Lots of politicking and to advance you must know someone and be close friends. There is also a lack of communication in regards to racism within the company.

      Advice to Management

      train staff to be more diverse and hire more minorities!

      Pros

      Food Some Employees are worth going to work for

      Cons

      Hired Young Managers who have NO kind of Managerial Skills and then cry/whine when they've been given feedback to improve on. These Young Managers take no ownership for faults and think they know everything about everything. typical young minded souls....

      Advice to Management

      Stop hiring or promoting these people who have no Managerial skills.

      I have been working at DoorDash full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      There are some recent negative reviews here which I feel completely misrepresent the engineering org. Here's the truth: Is there tech debt? Yes, a medium amount. I've also been in this industry for 10 years and I've seen truly bad tech debt where you have giant codebases with absolutely 0 tests/monitoring. That is not the case here by any means. Do not pay attention to people saying our code is "terrible" -- every codebase...

      Cons

      Again, medium amount of tech debt. We're currently dedicating serious resources to fixing debt and improving system stability, so I'm happy with the way the management team is taking this, but we still have a ways to go here. I'm confident we'll fix the most glaring issues given a bit more time. CTO is pretty green all things considered. There's an active search for a VPE to fill in the gaps and the pipeline is full...

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the great work. Work on hiring a VPE who will help hasten the technical maturity we need to achieve as an organization.

      Pros

      most people here are friendly? wlb is pretty good, which makes Doordash doe not look like a startup to me

      Cons

      ownership is not clear; TBD

      Advice to Management

      RAISE THE HIRING BAR and hire more strong people, otherwise doordash will be closed soon. We already have so many tech debts.

      Pros

      free lunch delivered to your desk,

      Cons

      Slave drivers, lying is the company's culture, no morals, they will lie and pretend to care about you while they are really just planning on firing you. They only hire young people and do not have ethnically diverse workforce. They are a male dominated company. If you are not in your 20's don't plan to go any place with this employer. They don't have a set of standards for anything they do they just make everything...

      They will allow you to sign up for career mapping even though they have no intention of allowing you achieve this.

      Free lunch so you can work longer and never leave the building.

      Cons

      The usual high school environment with their immature cliques This is an entry-level sales position to cold call leads of a phonebook, google their marketing is weak.

      Advice to Management

      Be transparent and Treat everybody equally also quit being abusive towards your employees that are not part of your clique or race.
