Great people & cultureAug 2, 2016 - Principal Product Manager in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Airbnb is an excellent place to work. The people are top notch and a strong culture of "belonging" keeps a-holes, politicians, and unproductive people away. Things move fast and people who adapt well, do well. The office is spectacular and the day-to-day comforts are top notch.
The company is going through a transition from big startup to big company, as such some things are being developed as the company grows. The company takes its people and culture seriously but some things like development plans are still in the works. Like many startups, Airbnb is still a place where you have to actively manage your own career and build skills.

Great company, strong DS team, interesting work. Not so great for DS Managers.Mar 23, 2023 - Data Science Manager in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
It is a great company to work for, very interesting problems to work on, super smart people around.
Great place to be an IC, don't come here looking for a Manager role. Not great career prospects in the management space. The org has been flattened, with managers pushed to do IC work, unless they have at least 8 DS reports (which most rarely do). With hiring slowed down since 2020, managers can't find enough ICs to fill a team.

Compensation is nearly 2x my last role. Brilliant talent. Remote flexibility is amazing. Work/life balance is a real priority. Company values of belonging aren't just lip service, they actually carry over in all the little ways, which I've never seen before. Solving challenging and complex problems. I truly do like my job, and would like to stay here for a really really long time.
The vibe is a bit more serious than I expected - people have a really strong commitment to craft, and there's less joking around than I've experienced in past organizations. And (the flip side of the benefits of remote flexibility) it's a bit difficult to feel connected with coworkers given how little I see them IRL (I'm in NYC)Continue reading
