Disapproves of CEO

I worked at CouchSurfing full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The food is phenomenal

The office is open and airy, with swings, ping pong table, and plants/trees

A really cool platform that creates a great community

Cons

More than one mass layoff and several other firings made for a company culture where employees wonder whether they would also suddenly find themselves unemployed one day

Revenue model ideas that changed on a weekly basis made for uncertainty

    I worked at CouchSurfing part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great food
    - Friendly people
    - Didn't feel like you were a slave to the man
    - Chill, open vibe

    Cons

    All of the pros were remnants of the previous regime. Capital ruined this place.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency rules all.

    I worked at CouchSurfing full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, handmade chef meal for lunch and dinner, spacious fun office, competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Definitely capital ruined this place. Bunch of employees got fired suddenly including people just got hired within a month. I don't think this company has clear vision and strategy to generate revenue to pay back to VC unfortunately.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not forget there are actual people who love doing Couchsurfing all over the world. This is about being curious, making a connection and giving them more than you took.
