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

    Pros

    Work life balance is great. The projects are interesting and we are given great autonomy. Leadership feels like they care and they make a lot of effort to communicate and improve.

    Cons

    The organization and teams are a little murky.

    I worked at Vimeo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Vimeo is a cool company- the product is cool, the employees are from diverse professional backgrounds, and to Vimeo’s credit, they try to be inclusive of all gender-identities, races, etc. Work/life balance can be great on the right team.

    Cons

    There’s an underlying, unspoken toxic culture that really makes it impossible to enjoy working there as a minority, and is causing a lot of employees to be leaving as of late. People are often fired mysteriously and management tends to sweep things under the rug rather than address them head on.

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

    Pros

    Work/life balance is taken very seriously. Leadership actually listens and takes action on employee feedback. It feels great to be at a company well-positioned to succeed. I feel very supported by my superiors and lucky to have such talented peers.

    Cons

    Some of the enterprise products (the area of our business targeted to drive the most growth) are very confusing with lots of product overlap. We desperately need to clean that up. With Sales growing so rapidly, I’ve found several cases of Sales miscommunicating to clients.

    Pros

    - CEO - Anjali is transparent, forward-thinking, and approachable. She makes everyone feel like part of the team regardless of their level within the org. - Compensation and benefits - Vimeo provides generous and holistic benefits to its employees (strong work/life balance, flexible PTO/sick time, 401k matching, etc.), plus strong compensation. - Vimeo listens to employees' inputs - e.g. stock video idea came from a current employee who was encouraged to build on his vision and make it come to life.

    Cons

    - Doing a lot at once - stock, core product, enterprise solutions, etc.

    Pros

    much cooler product than most tech companies D&I taken seriously. plenty of problems over the years but has a employee base that tries to hold the leadership accountable

    Cons

    managers change over and over again, opportunities for career growth are rare product is going in a significantly less cool direction than it used to be layoffs and mass hires have completely changed the culture, mostly for the worse
