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

    Pros

    This is a company that genuinely cares about you as a human being, not just an employee or a "resource". I'm constantly blown away by the leadership team who actually practice servant leadership. There's no ego at the top and there's real transparency when it comes to sharing priorities/ updates with the rest of the team. The benefits and perks are outstanding and the compensation is beyond what I've experienced at any other startup of this size. I am especially proud of Webflow after seeing how our leadership handled the COVID 19 shut down and economic downturn as well as the racial tensions bubbling up in the US. Webflow practiced extraordinary kindness when it came to ensuring employee wellbeing and took action when it came to making a commitment to DEI and education. No virtue signaling, no empty statements, just action. I feel so incredibly fortunate to be part of this team, especially during these turbulent times.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains for a startup where processes and structure can be painful to put in place, especially when you were a very small team not that long ago.

    Wow, thanks for making our Monday! I'm personally honored that you feel so confident in our leadership team- and we are grateful to you and all our team mates for giving feedback and rallying behind all these important (even if unexpected) initiatives that 2020 has challenged us with. And regarding the growing pains, 100% yes these are valid concerns. What worked for us as a team of 50 doesn't always work for our team of 175 today, and as we continue to grow, we will see more of these. I invite you continue to provide feedback, whether here on Glassdoor, in our next team survey, or even a Slack message to me. This feedback is incredibly important so we can continue to invest in the good things and solve for the pain points in a way that supports our dual missions- the goal is to continue to grow in the right direction even if the growing pains are at times, well, painful. Thanks again for the feedback!

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

    Pros

    - Excellent work/life balance. - Incredibly talented team who cares about their craft. - Everyone's very friendly. - Flexible time zones, so you can live just about anywhere you want (quite a few people at the company are traveling around the world as of this review). - Flexibility around what kind of problems you'd like to work on. - Compensation plan is amazing. - Code is generally clean & easy to understand.

    Cons

    - Code in many areas feels like alienware. Very well thought out, but doesn't follow popular JavaScript conventions, and sometimes hard to follow.

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

    Pros

    I applaud the founders' eye at hiring. I have never worked at a company where every individual is very good at doing the job they were hired for. It makes it easier as everyone is drinking the kool-aid (in a good way) on our vision. - Great team - Flexible working situation (remote, work from home, etc.) - Great perks - Yearly retreat (Tahoe, San Diego, Cancun, Portugal, etc.) - Independence and a pretty flat hierarchy

    Cons

    - Normal growing pains as the company is establishing OKRs.

    I have been working at Webflow full-time

    Pros

    Webflow is an incredible place to work. The founding team is a brilliant mix of talents and backgrounds that have come together to form the perfect leaders of the Webflow product and team. I cannot stress enough how each individual not only is a ridiculously skilled in their position, but every employee is kind and supportive to everyone else. And the founders have set forth an environment where we can all maintain ownership over our responsibilities, but have support and structure when needed. There is a very strong positive culture here that makes being a part of this company even more special.

    Cons

    Only downside is that we are still figuring out the right balance of management/individualism as we grow.

    "Very non-toxic"

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

    Pros

    Encouragement from top down to not overwork. Remote-first with flexible opportunities to travel to work in San Francisco office. Family friendly, flexible hours, but communicative so nobody drops off of radar. Non-toxic culture with engineers and other team-members from a variety of backgrounds. Best male / female engineer balance of anywhere I've worked... I wish Glassdoor made it possible to compare those numbers.

    Cons

    The eternal challenge: balancing legacy support with building new stuff.
