Can anyone provide a referral to multiple roles: Facebook (Meta) Adobe Google Visa Mastercard Twitch Microsoft Citi Warner Bros. Discovery Etsy Also looking for referrals for Director of Design, Head of Product Design, and similar titles. I have product and design leadership experience from DeFi, spent years as an IC and manager in FAANG and also worked heavily in innovation in healthtech at One Medical Group before IPO/Acquisition. Many thanks to the entire fishbowl for the help. It's rough out there.

And it's not even close. Imagine working for a company where guiding principles and mission statements aren't just empty words. They actually mean something, and people try their best to follow them. The company shows that it values its employees by providing a clean and well-maintained workspace with food, coffee, beer, and kombucha; transparent and clear communication from the executives during ; and a whole host of excellent benefits including good health insurance, a good amount of vacation time, unlimited sick/mental health days, and in many cases WFH/hybrid options depending on your role. Work/life balance is a big priority and is frequently discussed among both managers and ICs (individual contributors). There's also a strong emphasis on career growth and learning opportunities. Before Etsy, I had never felt so supported and comfortable at work.
Mainly it's just that the company is big, so sometimes it's hard to get the right information or find the right person or team to help with a problem. However, when you consider how big the company is, this is less of a problem than you might expect due to the various well-organized systems and resources that employees can use to communicate and share info.1

Great WLB, people are kind and care about each other. There's a strong culture of calling out wrongs, even at the IC level, whether or not it's actually addressed. Benefits are good, not great.
Lots of burnout and unclear/changing expectations. Middle and upper management don't feel like they are in tune with what's going on at the IC level. Teams are built around GMS driving goals rather than product spaces, which means everyone can and does develop features/code across the site. There are no lines of ownership or consistency in coding patterns, and also an alarming lack of area experts since "everyone owns everything". A lot of decisions seem to be made from the top without great communication or input from people at the bottom. I've felt a lot of resistance to adding process or setting clear expectations due to lack of time or "that's not how Etsy works"7

Everyone is nice and friendly
Chaotic management with frequent reorg, not much engineering culture, product rules all
- 1.0Nov 4, 2023Senior Product ManagerFormer Employee, less than 1 yearBrooklyn, NY
Seemingly cool culture, free food
After the initial honeymoon gets over it is basically a show of inadept leaders (aks Directors) who have formed their own tribes and promote their own agenda under the disguise of company goals. What once used to be a bottom up culture has now been brow-beaten into compliance. They talk about coaching mentality but the real culture is NOT growth oriented, its PIP. Every year some staff will be FORCE fit into saying they did not meet their goals and a PIP is designed. They will make it a short term affair designed to ensure the employee is leaving. I have seen new employees as early as 6 months fall under PIP.5

Open about remote and hybrid working
The management culture (for all departments) rewards people who cut employees loose and start over with someone new, rather than giving support to those that need it. Super sad to see great people cut for not checking the "right" boxes.1

Great work life balance, diversity and work environment
Not much pressure, may not be best for someone seeks to grow fast1

- Actual work-life balance - The company is exceptionally mindful of our impact in the greater world: be that ecological, economic, or social impact. It is reflected in the software we create, the engagement with our sellers and buyers, the events we do, and the organizations we partner with - You work with particularly intelligent and driven people - Exceptional benefits like 6 months parental leave for all genders, 20 free therapy sessions per yr, unlimited sick and mental health days, IVF and egg freezing support, and catered lunches and breakfasts by local chefs for folks in office - Our CEO is accessible and seems to genuinely care about Etsy's employees and their wellbeing - It's a company that is easy to be proud to work for
- There are a lot (often too many) approvals required to get projects across the finish line which makes it difficult to complete work in a timely manner and often even develop as impactful outputs as intended - Limited opportunity for career advancement (role and compensation) - Extremely risk-averse - Many things are considered "urgent" which can then take priority and make it difficult to complete projects on your roadmap1
