      A La La Land Like No Other

      May 25, 2018 - HQ - Employee in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      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.

      Pros

      Great mission. Inspiring leadership. Socially conscious organization. Lots of incredible challenges to solve. You're working on a product that you use, and talk to customers every single day. Collaborative culture.

      Cons

      This is a crazy startup, so you need to be comfortable with change and rapid iteration. Benefits could be better.

      Great culture and team

      Apr 29, 2021 - Community Lead in Boston, MA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The culture, team mentality, and people are incredible. Nearly everyone I worked with was engaged and willing to help another teammate.

      Cons

      Not necessarily a con, but being part of the Community team (the team staffing each building) is a hospitality first job - meaning you get all the joys and challenges of working in the same building as the members.
