    Great place to learn and have flexibility

    Nov 16, 2022 - Analytics Engineer in Washington, DC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Spotify is a great place to learn and grow your skill sets. Lots of time given and handy learning modules. Spotify offers a really great work-life balance for most engineers. The office is a really fun place with lots of perks, and they let me work remotely permanently (not just for the pandemic).

    Cons

    There are definitely evil tech companies out there and this is not one of them. That being said you do have to hold your nose a bit, with the issues around misinformation from Joe Rogan for instance.
