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

    Pros

    Remote work and great coworkers

    Cons

    The company is trying to grow at a rate they cannot support, making a completely overwhelming experience for those at the bottom. There is no plan in place, our job responsibilities change constantly and there is no end it sight. All of Support feels very burnt out and very abandoned by our leadership. I would not advise working here.

    Pros

    Very LGBTQ+ friendly, fun company culture, WFH during the pandemic, good benefits package.

    Cons

    Minimal options for career advancement, no communication about performance bonus, their COVID leave policy debits your PTO first then you get to access your leave policy. They consider most moves "lateral" meaning if you switch to a more specialized department you'll still be getting entry level wages.
