The Work-Life Bowl

Product Manager

WSJ: WeWork CEO says employees who are least engaged are the ones who want to WFH, while those who are most engaged are the ones excited to come back to the office. WTF is this boomer BS? Jesus, hire adults who don't need to suck up to you at the water cooler in order to like their job. Can we please push back against this narrative? Many of us have worked very very hard this past year, with great productivity, and this is what we get to hear? 😡

    Great place to work!

    Pros

    If you’re willing to take initiative and and be resourceful, there are tons of areas for growth at the company. Leaders are open to promoting within and finding the right career path for each person. Some amazing people who work at the company. The company is gaining a great reputation externally. Friends and family have commented at how amazing the press is around earnings and I absolutely love the new brand campaign we launched. The leadership and team working on that is doing a great job! It makes you feel proud to work at the company.

    Cons

    The company has gone through a lot, but headed in the right direction. Sometimes roles and responsibilities can be blurry, but it seems that’s being worked on across the company to be better aligned.

    A La La Land Like No Other

    May 25, 2018 - HQ - Employee in New York, NY

    Pros

    VERY cool HQ--beer, fruit water, and other treats on tap, free breakfast, amazing decor, lots of events and cool trendy vendors who bring free stuff--if you like to humblebrag via Insta, you'll love this place. Some cool people --celebrities come in and out, your colleagues are generally very attractive folks, there's a sense of excitement and true commitment to the work (borderline evangelism) depending on who you work with and what you do. Name recognition and valuation -- company is a rising star and it's worth having on your resume. A cool mission on the surface--bringing community together, helping people do what they love (making work a passion rather than a chore) through connection.

    Cons

    This place is like drinking from one continuous Kool-Aid jug. VERY cult-y and cliquey. You are either in or you're out, and if you're out, rather than cut you loose right away, they gaslight you. It's actually kind of shocking how many people I've seen be treated so poorly here, and perhaps no coincidence that they were folks of color. Kind of hard to find the down to earth people I did find. I enjoyed the Community teams and Security/Ops/Real Estate people I met, probably because they were constantly "hustling," but the HR team (the PEOPLE team, for goodness sake) and a lot of other "prominent" faces were consistently rude, with an overinflated sense of self and zero idea of how the WeWork "values" translate into behaviors/contributions from a prospective employee POV. You have to have been there since the start, or be prepared to ingratiate yourself, to get any traction in your professional development or career path. I was always shocked how badly my manager wanted to be liked, and how much they were willing to do to be liked, to get any kind of clout and/or promotion just bc they hadn't started out at WeWork as a community team member. Never mind that they were super qualified for their job. Pay varies depending on who you are; some people earn market value...some people very very much don't, and there doesn't seem to be any consistency that determines which is which. TGIM. Thank God it's Monday. Mandatory Monday meetings. Sometimes they circulate tequila shots. Is that a plus? Not sure. Summer Camp. Adult Summer Camp. With EDM, people in salmon colored shorts, and lots of loud rowdy entitled folks. If that's anything but a con for you, you probably belong here and godspeed.

    No Adults In The Room

    Pros

    -> Good work/life balance -> Fully remote, but offices are very nice -> Low-level employees are great people

    Cons

    -> Company REFUSES to hire. Some positions have been open for 2.5 years -> No one is backfilled. When someone leaves, that position is gone forever. All teams are understaffed, most have been understaffed for >2 years, many teams are completely gone and others must maintain their projects -> Middle management and upward are completely incompetent -> The entire company changes priorities every 3-4 months, top-to-bottom -> My team has been reorganized 9 times. I am on my 8th manager in 4 years. -> The cruelest and most cut-throat managers get promoted, the compassionate ones don't -> Technology org particularly is an absolute rats' nest of chaos, incompetence, and politics -> You will not get promoted. Even with the absolute highest possible performance reviews, you will never be promoted

    Hectic, but really can't complain that much

    Pros

    - Excellent pay - 24/7 access to all weworks worldwide (great for finding bathrooms in NYC) - Strong liberal values (off for juneteenth, celebration of minorities and women in tech) - $8 off of lunch - Great team / work environment - Great work/life balance (when people work past 9-5, sometimes they are even given a tsk tsk, other times you can tell the managers are quietly glad)

    Cons

    - Hectic. The effects of 2019 are still felt. - So much old code is just left there, and the people who wrote it were either fired or left. - Often feels very organized. Stuff, and people, are all over the place.
