    I have been working at Airbnb full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Nice office / some really good people - Exposure to tech

    Cons

    - Do not be fooled that the Montreal office is Airbnb; it's not. - Managers who do not bother attending training / adhering to the culture - Zero opportunities to progress (comes up in every employee survey, year in year out) - People will steal your ideas and throw you under the bus because they're so scared and stressed by God-awful senior Leadership

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

    Pros

    Great people. Definitely a west coast vibe. A lot of smart and hard working people from around the world. Benefits are great and some positions pay well.

    Cons

    If you are in sales watch out!! You will find yourself working all hours of the day. With zero work life balance. This is expected of you. Impossible to work less than 55 hours a week. If you have a family I would think twice about applying here. I would travel to come back 3 weeks later and see people in their 20’s age as if it was 5 years later.

    Montreal office is in a tough spot. Often overlooked and tough to make an impact on the overall business. Changes come often and direction is not always clear.
