Benefits are really top notch - monthly food stipend, mental health and fertility services, cool swag, nice offices, etc. The product is obviously very cool and something I feel a lot of people are very passionate about. I've never worked at a company before where I've personally really cared about or enjoyed the product, so that is cool.
Management is relatively a mess. Actual ownership is pretty non-existent across the board and priorities are constantly changing to the point I felt like it was pointless to even begin working on something because it would change again in a few weeks. It's definitely very clear who are the "favorites" and most of the favorites are social suck ups (sorry, don't know how to say that more tactfully). Additionally, I know Spotify is known for its WLB, but be weary as this is TOTALLY dependent on your role and org. I realize this is pretty true for most companies (not just Spotify) but one of the reasons I joined was for the advertisement of WLB. It was ironic because I have never become so burnt out in my entire career and as quickly as I have at Spotify. I'm not sure how career opportunities were back in the day, but career advancement did not even seem possible for me.
