    I worked at Square for less than a year

    Pros

    I am deeply grateful to have worked at Square. They took a chance on hiring me and my experience helped me to grow tremendously. I was trained by two of the best managers I’ve ever met - brilliant people who changed my perception on how a company can be run. There were negatives but the positives mostly outweighed them. I met some absolutely wonderful people whom I will never forget. Overall my experience was life-changing, though short. There were frustrations but I was happy every single day I spent at Square. Great meals, snacks, gorgeous views and comfortable work spaces. Square was my second home.

    Every company is a microsociety with it’s politics and cultures; Square MUST abolish it’s use of contractors who are treated like second-class citizens to be tossed aside when no longer needed. This would solve a lot of the company’s toxic business practices and culture. Equality starts with a company’s treatment of its workforce. The CEO must take ownership of these inequalities and get involved in coming up with solutions.
