Pros

The people at Airbnb are amazing- everyone is genuinely smart, enthusiastic, and friendly. The employees deeply care about the company mission and the well-being of the Airbnb community. The work is also interesting, impactful and challenging in the right kind of way.

Cons

The criteria for being evaluated and moving up in the levels is not entirely clear.

Advice to Management

I love working at Airbnb, I'd recommend keep focusing on the culture as you have been, and thinking about growth opportunities for employees who have been there a while.

    Pros

    I work as a freelance photographer. It is great for the flexibility and that it allows me to work in a variety of countries with great ease. Although the amount of work varies greatly depending on location. They always pay fast and on time. How helpful they are if an issues arises caries

    Cons

    The amount of work varies a lot. This is the nature of being a freelancer of course, but they purposely limit the amount of work to each individual and hire more than they need. So it would be better if they had less photographers who could do more. They dont treat somebody who has been with the company for 5+ years any better than somebody who was just hired. Equality is nice, but at the same time its nice to reward those who have dedicated a significant amount of time to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Dont treat all issues with generic corporate responses. Actually address the issues at hand with respect.

    I have been working at Airbnb full-time

    Pros

    - Culture is amazing. Picture colleagues setting up a fake coffee shop every week to make free coffee, ice cream given out randomly, people sing happy birthday every week.
    - People are smart. Like super smart. It's humbling to work with them.
    - Challenging and meaningful problems to solve.
    - Empowers everyone to develop their individuality.
    - Lots of emphasis on movement between teams as good thing.
    - French toast Fridays are insane.

    Cons

    - Scrappy work environment, lots of things to do that competes for attention.
    - Constant changes, can feel unorganized from time to time.
    - Hard to remember who's the right point of contact.
    - Lots of tribal knowledge that took a long time to learn.

    Advice to Management

    Although on boarding was amazing, I still see many new comers take time to get up to speed. The company needs a proper documentation of the organization. Can be a confusing place to work in.
