    I have been working at Snap full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great mid-sized company to work for, with a highly scaled app and a very fun culture. The impact a good engineer can have on the company's bottom line is astonishing compared to larger firms. The company's rough post IPO years are over now, and things are back on the right track.

    Cons

    The fast pace of work may not be for everyone. The technology is less mature than at larger companies.

    Pros

    Culture is amazing -they focus on being kind, smart and creative and really mean it. Innovation is in abundance. They want to make a positive impact on the world and it's super authentic. Rare to find... And the business is doing really well so it's the real deal. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Honestly, none. It's the best place I've ever worked. Never been happier.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Snap full-time

    Pros

    Innovative design, everybody is copying them, above market compensation used as a retention tool

    Cons

    The culture is toxic. There's almost no leadership diversity (my mgmt chain was 5 layers of white males), HR was hostile, and too many impactful decisions were made opaquely with unknown justification which eroded trust in the company.

    I have been working at Snap full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get a ton of independence, many people are smart and driven, and there is a lot of growth happening so it's an exciting time to be working here. Also it helps that Evan is quite an inspiring leader and has been leading the company through COVID well so far.

    Cons

    When it comes to ad-tech, it definitely still has a lot of catching up to do relative to the other big players. Product challenges can be tough to work through. There is still some skepticism in the market over advertising on Snap but this is improving bit by bit.
