    Pros

    A place for personal and professional growth, lots of opportunities for you to make an impact and have fun while doing it.

    Nothing will be handed to you, you are expected to know your area and take the initiative, if you don't then you won't last.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, listen to employees more.

    I worked at WeWork full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a fun culture to be a part of in and outside of work.

    Cons

    Upper management will treat and talk to you as if there is no other company to work for in the world other than WeWork. They paint themselves as an understanding and all inclusive environment. They will tell you to be your self. However, you better learn when to duck your head down and not call out their BS. "Be yourself, so long as we like you."

    I worked hard at this job and the building I sold for was the top selling location in NYC for several months. Still, my manager felt my performance lacked. At WeWork you will be over worked. 8:30AM to 6:00PM Monday-Friday is the MINIMUM amount of time you will be working. Don't forget the weekly Monday night meeting and company happy hours. Once they find out you're not attending the happy hours, suddenly you're not a culture fit.

    Advice to Management

    When I interviewed for my position with the Global Operations Manager I asked him "What is the work life balance like?" He hesitated and said "Well... we don't like to say that work is separate from life at WeWork. Some nights I'm working till 9PM and taking tequila shots with 25 year old employees."

    Advice: Know how to answer the one question that EVERY employee cares about the most aside from pay and benefits.

    Also, 70% of your revenue comes from your community leads taking tours and selling the space. Try throwing them a bonus?

    I have been working at WeWork full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Since the company is growing so fast, there are plenty of career opportunities. I started a year ago as the third person on the team, there are now 60 people on the team globally. Positions on our team keep opening and we always try to promote from within, giving our team members the opportunity to grow.

    It still has the start up feeling in the sense that every individual's voice and opinion matters, so you feel like you are making an impact in the company and you're not just another number in a corporate world.

    Our team is young and full of energy so I come into work every day looking forward to working with my team, learning something new and contributing to WeWork's mission.

    Cons

    I can't think of a con, I absolutely love the company and my team

    I worked at WeWork full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free coffee, free beer, free meals on Monday evening after 6:00 pm,. Cool vibe casual office culture that is very deceiving.

    Cons

    Oppressive work environment with zero work/life balance. Culture is haphazard and chaotic with millennials running the company that are impossible to deal with as they back stab colleagues in effort to better themselves. This is. It a Company where hard work is rewarded. Management expects all staff to work 60'hours per week. If you like going in at 7 and going home at 11 this is the place for you.....NOT ME.

    Advice to Management

    Esther than summer camp, add more responsible qualified people to ge the job done 40'hours per week.

    Pros

    Nothing consequential, free meals mean you have to stay late... on a Monday no less!

    Cons

    Constant management inflicted anxiety, understaffing on purpose, little chance to advance, backstabbing, low salary, high turnover, etc...

    Advice to Management

    Grow the f*** up - you can be an innovator without being immature.
