    Supportive, caring culture

    Pros

    I've never experienced a culture like the one that I have at Instacart. Unlike most companies, when they say unlimited time off, they mean it. When they say they support working parents, they mean it (and make sure that their managers are following that guidance). When they say they value diversity, they mean it (majority female C-suite!). The culture simply can't be beaten. My team is beyond supportive of one another, and we all strive to lift up each other. The org is also large enough that there seems to be a job for every talent and skill level.

    Cons

    Pay is not usually commiserate for comparable jobs at other companies, and teams sometimes do not collaborate.

    Pros

    Opportunities to grow depth and breath of experience. People are surprisingly very kind across the board (yes, even the brilliant engineers are approachable) and intend to do right by the customers, shoppers, and employees. Lots of opportunities to grow programs and functions from the ground up. Have noticed very low amount of territorialism / hyper political activity like I have seen at other companies in SF (see: Salesforce, Google, Facebook). I think the reason is because this company is very much still in a pivotal growth stage. Not everything has been fully matured, but it’s rapidly improving every week and every month. Get in while you can to grow something before it matures fully and becomes “boring” :)

    Cons

    Long term planning for programs is improving, but needs more structure around prioritization and accountability to get the truly highest impact items done first.

    Need Immediate Change

    Pros

    - There are some very nice people. - Instacart employee discount is good. - New CEO is really trying to change the culture in the right way.

    Cons

    - It is ABSOLUTE pure chaos. All lines of business run in silos and teams have no idea how to effectively work together. - NO WORK LIFE BALANCE. Most emails get sent after "regular working hours" which makes it extremely hard for working parents. We are expected to live and breathe Instacart. There is no "leading by example" because this type of behavior is coming from the top. - There is a clear separation between Hackers and all other teams - and not in a good way. - Compensation is laughable. They are not competitive with other roles and companies in the SF Bay Area. They rely heavily on equity which hopefully will be worth something soon, but all other SFBA companies make overall cash value competitive. - Leadership churn. Lots of leadership (S-Team, Director and above) have recently left. Those who are left are struggling and it's very visible. - Everything is P0 so we are always scrambling.
