    I have been working at DoorDash full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    DoorDash has an amazing company culture that really cannot be beat. It has a start up feel and perks to boot. The people however are what make it unbeatable. DoorDash has successfully hired a group of people who thrive on competition, teamwork, and that truly love this company.
    Management is extremely transparent, which you often lose in growing companies like DoorDash. They truly care about the success of not only the company, but of all employees.

    Cons

    I sincerely can not think of any cons to working at DoorDash.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    I have now been at DoorDash for over 4 months and it has been an amazing experience. I work on the outside sales team and we have such a bright and driven team. Everyone is here to help us impact local businesses and deliver good to the community. Outside of the sales team, the entire company is growing so rapidly and the trust within the company is something I have never seen before. We are a very transparent company and very driven to be the best. The team is here to win together and to make a difference. If you are motivated, driven to help others, work well with others, want to make an impact at a fast pace company, join DoorDash!

    Cons

    We move very fast, just being organized is important, which we do a majority of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep including us in the decisions we make as a company and keep up our transparency! Onward and upward!

    Pros

    - Company doing well, making customers happy. Those options might be worth something someday.
    - Quick to adopt new technologies, so you won't get behind the industry curve.

    Cons

    - Management is really young, and out of their depth. The founders lucked into the business with their school project, and are riding the success to multi-millionaire futures. Unfortunately this doesn't mean that they have any idea of how to run a successful business.
    - High-ego engineers. Tech meetings which should be fun and supportive often devolve into ego contests where engineers try to squash each other's ideas. Worst engineering culture I've ever seen!
    - "Unlimited vacation" actually means that you have to feel guilty about time off, and you don't get credit for unused vacation when you leave. Don't get fooled by this ripoff!

    Advice to Management

    - Realize that you aren't a start-up any more, you're a small-to-midsize company.
    - Make plans past the upcoming quarter.
    - Don't treat your employees like pawns on your personal chessboard.

    Pros

    Doordash Culture is Unlimited Vacation Policy

    Cons

    Holiday days off only when a holiday is on a week day. For example in the year 2017, when Christmas Eve falls on 24th, you don't get holiday on Friday the 23rd.
    For some reason Christmas on 25th, but they do give holiday on 26th Monday.

    Advice to Management

    People need holidays

    Pros

    DoorDash is growing fast either on company size or on its business. Things are moving fast too. Company and teammates encourage the culture to give feedback on everything and the ownership of product. Working hours are flexible. You decide what to do and when to do as long as teammates are positive on these contributions. You will want to run fast because everyone surrounding is fast.

    The Internal infrastructure tool chains are pretty good too. With them you can have environments for developments within 1-2 days. You will have contribution right after joining the company without suffering from getting configuration done.

    Benefits are very good too. Buffet lunch are provided everyday. Reimbursements for parking and transportation are provided. Sequoia Swift Benefit is used to provide dental / vision and medical benefits. You can set them on your own.

    Cons

    Too many things to do and almost everything needs negotiation. Sometimes there are many context switch in one day. It's not really a con but an evidence the company is growing and needing more workforce. It just requires more effort from you to prioritize things

    Advice to Management

    well done
