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

    Pros

    Love love love. There is so much love amongst people here.
    Culture fit interviews to weed about people who can't get along with others and does not have team belongingness.
    Food is not great but good, love micro kitchens.
    Good work life balance.
    People are very understanding. Say if you need to work from home for month or few because of some family emergency.
    Holiday shutdown. Everyone gets off from Dec 20th till Jan 1st. That's amazing.
    Very competitive pay. Similar to Google, Fb, Uber, Lyft, Stripe etc.
    Business outlook is very strong. Where other tech unicorns like uber are burning cash, we are profitable and increasing that yoy.
    Great product with no real competitor.

    Cons

    Tech is not that strong. Need some good tech leadership and guidance on the path.
    Food can be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
    Take your time to go ipo but do it correctly and only when it makes sense.
    No firing to clean books for ipo.
    Bring some tech leadership.
