    Incredible technology-first culture

    Pros

    Poloniex values its engineers and designers incredibly highly. There is tons of transparency with leadership, and there is a relatively flat hierarchy in terms of decision making. Diversity is huge as well, with WFH culture being a huge component.

    Cons

    Dependencies on trends of the cryptocurrency market can be unpredictable.

    Focused & Talented Team

    Pros

    1. Very focused team post spin-out from Circle. Keep up the focus and hitting goals! 2. Great culture - HR team really cares and supported the employees through Covid. 3. Everyone seems to be doing everything possible to turn the company around. Great team atmosphere. 4. People are passionate about crypto and live it everyday. 5. Senior leadership is doing an amazing job at the moment - please continue to keep in tune with employees.

    Cons

    Suggestions: 1. Equity so people feel more invested 2. Scrap the values - 6 months to make them (agree with the other review!). We have a culture (a great culture) - we don't need working sessions talking about values for >180 days. Would have worked if we just made a decision on them within the first couple of weeks. 3. Uncertainty about the future 4. Lack of career progression -- as much as I love it at Polo I'm not sure where my next steps are 5. Some people are overworked and likely burnout to be expected. 6. Need more female employees/leaders!

    Hard problems, interesting challenges in a fun industry

    Pros

    Since the Circle spinout, Poloniex is definitely on the upswing. The company is much more focused on success and new features have been shipping much faster. Negative employees from the Circle days stayed at Circle and got laid off, employees who joined Polo are focused on the goal of growing the exchange. Crypto is a very interesting and fun industry and Polo is one of the most well-known exchanges in crypto. Looking forwards to the future now that the Circle baggage is gone. Senior management is focused, I believe in them. The office is very beautiful, good views of Boston. Other employees are smart / dedicated and good vibes throughout the company.

    Cons

    Lack of equity / profit sharing

    Pros

    You get to solve interesting and challenging problems around trading, security, usability and scale while working in exciting space. Also, we have a lot of fun and have a friendly culture where best ideas are welcome from any level and any role.

    Cons

    Sometimes priorities shift and you have to go with it. If you like feeling like your work matters and want to be part of something mission critical this can be a pro.

    Pros

    - some smart/awesome people left (but they're running for the exits) - still some decent snacks

    Cons

    - run by leadership who just wants to shill his coin (and does not respect women) - other leadership is an absolute joke who commands zero respect and does nothing - turning into a scam - toxic environment - looks awful on your resume, this company's reputation is in the trash - no future
