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

    Pros

    - exciting business opportunity with tons of upside still ahead - very smart people to work with and learn from - good diversity of backgrounds and experience - no jerks, lots of respect and empathy for co-workers - opportunity to create and build something amazing - everyone has a hand in creating the business and helping determine its future - worklife balance is real here for everyone, including parents

    Cons

    Few to mention here... - too open? Sometimes conversations about small topics will take center stage in the internal news cycle which can be a distraction from the work at hand. - Life is great here and wouldn't trade it but it feels like we may be a bit over-entitled at times. It's not outrageous, but can be a little silly at times.

    I have been working at Slack full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smart, engaged, hardworking and (most of all) empathetic colleagues. Management/executives truly listen to feedback and change how they act based on what their front line employees are seeing. Up to and including Stewart.

    Cons

    You will struggle here if you're not fungible/adaptable. We're still growing super quickly so you have to be ready for your org, team, and function to change and for processes to be constantly changed as we scale.

    Pros

    Innovative product Incredible team across organization - smart, dedicated, energized, fun Empathetic organization Overall Slack is a wonderful place to work, and I have absolutely loved my time here.

    Cons

    Growing organization that is still finding its way from smaller start-up to now a 2K+ public organization. Sometimes processes can be overly tedious, and can feel like there can be too much of a big company mentality, when we still have the ability to be nimble if we could focus on that.
