I have been working at Asana full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

+ Amazing CEO who has best interest of employees in mind
+ Leadership team doesn't cut corners
+ Thoughtful and transparent around decision-making
+ Thoughtful and strategic about growth of business and where to invest resources.
+ Smartest, self-motivated teammates I've worked with so far; they also don't have as much ego as other places.
+ Invests in employees through trainings, empowerment to make decisions, career coaching
+ Work life balance is amazing
+ 3 meals a day by in-house professional culinary team
+ Value of empowerment allows you to make decisions that impact the business instead of dealing with politics.
+ Really good equity packages allow you to feel invested for the long-term
+ Expanding very, very quickly at the moment.
+ Feel inspired to do my best work and feel supported to do that
+ Actually using Asana internally - inbox zero and transparency across the entire organization is so refreshing.
+ Really creative happy hours and company outings; not an excessive drinking culture like at other startups I've been in.
+ Feels really mature for a company at this stage.

Cons

- Sometimes wish we could move faster
- Easy to not complete things fully because there's so much stuff to do.

    Pros

    Asana is a place that enables you to do great work and empowers you to be a better person. It is a joy to come to work each day to contribute to a mission I truly believe in. It is inspiring and motivating to be surrounded by such a high caliber of peers who excel in their field of expertise, while also having fun together, and the leadership team sets a strong example of putting our core values into practice. The office environment fosters creativity and allows for a combination of focused work and collaboration. The culinary team provides fuel to keep us energized and prepares some of the best meals I've ever enjoyed. In all, I couldn't imagine a better place to work, and I feel grateful every day to work with such an incredible team.

    Cons

    I have a hard time finding any negative aspects of working at Asana, and when any do arise, we have the appropriate outlets and channels in place to address those concerns to find a resolution.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You all are such an inspiration and joy to work with, and I appreciate your transparent, empowering, and mindful approach to leadership.
