    I worked at Etsy full-time

    Pros

    Great people, beautiful offices (when we could go to them). Awesome remote work policy, fun and supportive environment. Competitive pay. A compelling mission and sense of community.

    Cons

    * Bad benefits. If you're a remote employee, be sure to check coverage in your area before accepting your offer. * Ambiguity, chaotic atmosphere and inexperienced leadership. * A LOT of young, first time engineers. It's great that Etsy gives that opportunity to people but also means there's a real lack of experienced people to provide mentorship. * Didn't feel data driven, that aspect seems to be highly team specific. * Didn't feel there was anywhere to move up, probably depends on your role.

    I have been working at Etsy for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people and company culture. Generous benefits (fully paid health care, 26 weeks of parental leave, flexible work arrangements, etc). There's heavy focus on the company's mission and values: "to reimagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world." Nice to feel connected to the community and a part of something bigger - using business for good.

    Cons

    None I can think of!

    I worked at Etsy for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, culture, benefits, and outlook. Many smart people that I'd like to work with again if I could.

    Cons

    Little bit relaxed for an ecommerce company. I'd recommend that people spend less time reading and more time working.

    Pros

    So many things! Great people who are smart and kind. Love to hang out with my coworkers. Company culture is very transparent with no bs. In addition to this, all the usual perks and advantages (material & non-material) of working at a progressive and successful tech company. Chad is a great CEO.

    Cons

    Wish lunch was provided on more than two days a week

    Great people, great product. Top tech company to work for in NYC, so our staff is top notch. Good atmosphere, and a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the stock has been having trouble since IPO and many are underwater on their options, which is not a good thing.
