Former Employee - Marketing

I worked at Airbnb full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Even with the redundancy, it was very well done and full of heart

Cons

Not enough communication between top levels and employees

Former Employee - Operations Specialist

I worked at Stripe full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

* Stripe hires great people and you will love your co-workers * Benefits are great, even with pay and stock options not being what they used to be. Especially good for parents or expectant parents.... * Great food in their really swanky office(s) * Flexibility for working from home regularly * Lots of self-taught learning opportunities, you'll definitely take on new skill sets

Cons

* No recourse for outright toxic management, to say nothing about mediocre or bad management * No feedback culture, very low scores on employee surveys each year. Umbrella reminders for employees to... give each other feedback regularly but no enforcement for management to provide feedback to their reports. * Job expectations are extremely vague and seem to be left that way on purpose * Appear to be doing broad layoffs in preparation for IPO and likely to be able to hire in lower-pay employees, so make sure compensation seems worth it if you are given an offer * Removed unlimited vacation * Expectation that you self-teach skills not listed in your hiring responsibilities in order to "level up," minimal to no training offerings in those areas. Exceptions for technical/programming skills - skills like project management etc. are expected to be self-taught with absolutely zero guidance. * Basically no upward mobility, though parallel mobility is accessible to some. * Work/Life balance is only achievable if you are okay with mediocre performance reviews and the consequences thereof. Unspoken requirement to run yourself ragged if you want to get good performance reviews, though also apparently no actual way/route to ever meet standards for highest "levels" of performance. Top performers seem to burn out and need to take medical leave after a couple of years, for which they're often penalized, yet never meet highest performance levels according to performance reviews.

Advice to Management

Provide an anonymous/safe way to report toxic management and follow up on reports. Even without personal experience, reports of toxic management came from multiple teams about multiple managers, with... the certainty they would never be removed.
