    Pros

    Great culture between IC’s and direct managers. I think Honey had a unique culture centered around pushing one’s boundaries while making work super fun

    Cons

    Upper management is god awful. Honey used to have a great management culture but with PayPal, a wave of social-climbing managers came. They primarily care about padding their own resumes and moving onto other FAANG companies without providing any real value.

    Pros

    used to be many more pros- health insurance is decent

    Cons

    Since being acquired by PayPal, Honeys culture and values have gone down the drain. I don’t believe this is uncommon when an old school company with very corporate mindset acquires a startup. That said, if you’re ok with a mediocre salary, having a leadership team who doesn't care at all about your growth and therefore work as little as possible, This is the place for you.

    Pros

    our team is collaborative, fun, and enjoyable to be surrounded by. i look forward to coming to work everyday. there's opportunities for growth through risk.

    Cons

    after being acquired by PayPal, our team's culture and process has changed into less of a "start-up" and more of being a part of a larger business/team.
