    Great company but no upward mobility

    I really enjoy working at Pinterest, but its a larger company and there is no career outlook for our team. I am currently a contractor and there is no conversion plan for this role, so this team sees a high turnover.


    Growing pains, no upward mobility or conversion plan

    Honestly the best.

    Business Outlook


    Every company talks about culture but I've never seen a place so clearly embrace and live up to its culture (in a good way). People at Pinterest are some of the smartest I've ever worked with (and I've worked at top companies in Silicon Valley) and yet they are truly NICE and Pinterest-y. And there's a drive and hustle there - people stepping into different roles and wearing hats as needed to get sh*t done. Very little ego, just drive.


    Nothing significant that I haven't seen much worse elsewhere. There is the inevitable political game every once in a while but far less than other companies still and of course growing pains as the company has expanded quickly. The strong culture keeps a lot of these problems in check.

Diversity and Inclusion
In April, we shared our 2022 Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) Report under the theme “Inspiring Action.” At Pinterest, we’re on a mission to bring everyone the inspiration to create a life they love, and deliver an experience that reflects their interests, tastes and culture - no matter who they are. We cannot deliver that experience if our people and our product do not reflect the diversity of our world. “I’m inspired by our progress so far, along with the dedication that Pinterest demonstrates every day, as we work to embed inclusion and diversity in everything that we do.” – Nichole Barnes Marshall, Pinterest Chief Diversity Equity & Inclusion Officer Learn more about our latest progress and efforts on I&D and building a positive place online via our 2022 I&D Report.
