    Pros

    Good work-life balance, and the company generally does a good job at not hiring jerks.

    Cons

    A designer-driven company with an aversion to any kind of data-driven design - or even collecting data on user behavior. As an engineer, expect to be treated like a fungible cog, unless your manager really has your back and knows how to use political subterfuge to keep you safe.

    Pros

    Amazing diverse collaborative culture. Surrounded by very smart and highly skilled people who are constantly working hard to improve their craft. Most people check their ego at the door, everyone is helpful to one-another with the common mission in mind. Management is compassionate, caring, and clear on expectations. Employees feel supported with the right tools, resources, and are very well-compensated for the hard work. Total comp is on-par or better than FAANG in many cases.

    Cons

    Company is at the intersection of travel and sharing-economy, with focus on mostly traditional idea of travel lodging. While the travel industry is on the rebound from the pandemic, the long term future of the model is not without uncertainty and risk. Lots of competitions and the idea is not unique and can be replicated by competition.
