    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

    As with many hyper-growth companies, the people who feel the most engaged tend to be flexible and self-starters. Not necessarily a con, but may be a different way of working than some prospects might be interested in. In addition, rapid global expansion requires flexibility, patience & the ability/openness to pivot as needed.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing the commitment to scaling & evolving Asana's culture as we go after the global opportunity in front of us makes employees feel seen, heard & appreciated. Keep it up!
