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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Having worked at multiple Silicon Valley giants I'd been burned by long work hours and little reward in the past. At Airbnb everything changed:

    - Leadership seems invested in employee growth - mobility is encouraged and there seems to be a clear commitment to internal promotion

    - Work/Life balance is celebrated -- we're encouraged to WFH when needed and completely shut off when on vacation (the $2000 Airbnb stipend is a major plus!)

    Cons

    - Airbnb has historically been a warm environment and transitioning into becoming both a friendly and feedback driven culture has been a struggle. That said, they're definitely trying to create clear guidelines around performance + success.
