      I have been working at Reddit full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Reddit's been a great place for me to learn and grow. It's hard to find a job that allows you to be yourself at work, gives opportunity to make an impact and rewards good work - I've found all of that here with relatively few complaints. The benefits are incredible and if you come in with a good attitude, you'll find all the positivity you need to stay motivated. Creative ideas and community-building are the common thread...

      Cons

      Goals and objectives could be more clear from leadership - especially on big product bets. Have heard the re-org's can feel jarring, but I'm not as close to that. Little formal (or consistent) process, but that's sort of par for the course in a startup environment.

        I have been working at Reddit full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Great benefits, seems like gaining increased traction in marketplace

        Cons

        Product innovation just doesn’t seem innovative. It’s always a game of catch up and trying to gain parity with the powerhouses of google and facebook/ instagram. Remembering the human is a core value of reddit but many in management seem to have one track minds which can lead to toxicity in the company.

        Advice to Management

        Be more authentic and transparent with employees. Instead of just saying you care, make sure actions follow suit.

        Pros

        Some good benefits things like pet care.

        Cons

        There is no accountability with the exec team or leadership team. It seems every time it's time to do reviews it's also time for a re-org making it nearly impossible for anyone to give an honest assessment of their manager. Re-orgs are also a way for the exec team to push people out of the company who challenge them with thought provoking ideas. Worst thing of my 2 years at Reddit was watching how the women engineers...

        Advice to Management

        Stop talking, actually listen, you aren't right all the time or even most of the time. Let that sink in and then think about some of your decisions with the women of the company or anyone who has challenged you.

        Pros

        CEO cares about the product & the people. Room for growth if you happen to be well liked by People & Culture & find the right team. Perks - lots of perks.

        Cons

        It's chaos. Was very frustrating to work at Reddit because the CEO does care & is a great guy but the People & Culture group is in over their head and focused more on promoting their own personal brand through speaking engagements. The gossip never seems to stop and the negativity takes control. There are a few teams that thrive and seem healthy so if you can find the right team Reddit could be a great place....

        Advice to Management

        Stop making promises that can't be kept. Focus on the product and trust employees. The spoken values would be great if the company would live/work by them.

        I have been working at Reddit full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        It's a unique time to be apart of Reddit. We have millions of users, but there is still so much to build! It is super refreshing to have an Engineer at the helm who is transparent with employees no matter what level they are or what team they are apart of. Also, I like being apart of an org where my coworkers are uncompromisingly themselves. I like being myself at work. Thanks, Reddit! We also have really great benefits......

        Cons

        This is a start-up. We work hard and are comfortable with being uncomfortable. Reddit is not for the complacent or the unadaptable. If you aren't excited by the idea of leaving your comfort zone, might be the wrong place for you.

        Advice to Management

        Keep management updated on company wide changes. More data = less questions = happiness.

        Pros

        The company's at a stage where we're growing very quickly, resulting in a lot of growth opportunities for the employees as well. At the size we're at, it's amazing to see that you can have a direct impact on the company and the product. You can also tell that they really care about their employees - from the perks to the direct support from management.

        Cons

        With the rapid growth, things are changing very quickly, so you have to be ready to work in that fast-paced environment.

        - wonderful perks - the CEO is a really cool dude

        - highly clique-y. Manager gauges team members according to personal preference as opposed to contribution. It’s all about who can talk the talk. - no accountability for the quality of work. - be prepared to be thrown under the bus by your own boss. Tells you to work on unimportant projects if he doesn’t like you, or thinks that you may outshine himself. - my female colleague is manterrupted all the time. It’s kinda...
