Hi folks, Peloton SWE here. It’s been a rough week, and I’m starting to look at other jobs. Could use some help with referrals. Below are some places I’m interested in applying but don’t have contacts. If any of you work there and could refer me, that’d be greatly appreciated. Just DM me what you need from me.

    Pros

    I came from a large software vendor where everything was monotonous, and each day you would question what your purpose is. At Plaid, I honestly am so challenged every day. It's a chance to build, and to reap the benefits of your efforts. Best decision I could make. So, if you're in the same boat, make the jump. You wont regret it.

    Cons

    Nothing at all. Been fulfilling.

    Great Culture

    Sep 11, 2021 - Enterprise Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing and the quality of talent you will interact with on a day to day basis is top tier. For the most part leadership is transparent with what is on the roadmap.

    Cons

    The company started from growing with start ups and then moved to mid market. As it begins to move up market it needs to put more priority around supporting the enterprise. This means marketing materials, products as well as taking a look at pricing vs our enterprise competitors. At times it doesn't feel like the company understands that selling in to the enterprise is a completely different motion.

    Driven, thoughtful, personable

    Pros

    + Highly engaged and accessible senior leadership. C-suite makes themselves available for questions from anyone and answer them thoughtfully and honestly. + Strong transparency. People answer hard questions honestly and strategic company details are not just accessible but actively broadcasted. + Well-thought-out culture. Company emphasizes openness, empowerment, social support, growth, learning. + Strategic, focused organization. Lots of prioritization going on, company feels really in it to build far-and-away the best Open Banking technology out there, and teams think hard about how their work fits into the organization's goals and strategy. I don't mean just nice paper stuff; I mean the company really thinks about and gets ahead of its hurdles instead of handwaving them again. There's a strong sense of purpose and direction. + Strong future: Open Banking/fintech is expected to boom even further, Plaid is at the forefront, and if you look at publicly-available information and analyses of Plaid's future, paired with the company's culture, priorities, and hiring bar, you might find yourself quite optimistic about Plaid's future. Knock on wood, but stonks only go up! + Individualized career growth attention and performance reviews. + Company rewards being thoughtful.

    Cons

    - Lots of things to do. The transparency means a lot of information. The impactful work means a lot of prioritization and skimming. You have to get really good at staying focused on priorities and cutting out secondary needs, even when they're enjoyable or pressing. - Growing pains. Both technically and organizationally, Plaid is growing fast right now. This means some things are in flux. - Empowerment means responsibility. You're expected to really take ownership and find opportunities to contribute impactfully. I've never worked anywhere where "you own your career" has rang truer than at Plaid. - Lots of keep-the-lights-on work; some teams and Engineering Managers have a lot on their plate. - Company is super-social. You need to get used to talking to people, asking questions, etc., as a primary learning strategy. Formal processes and tools get a lot of love but they don't keep up with the growth nearly as well as people do. So you gotta really embrace 1:1's and coffee chats.
