    I worked at Airbnb full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company led by untalented managers making a profit off of people’s homes for a fee and a cost to the community.

    Cons

    Company led by untalented people, racial discrimination, no consideration for the community. Many engineers don’t last more than 1 - 2 years at most. Executive staff is making a profit hiring and laying off employees to do the heavy lifting and when the work is complete they have no intention of keeping you. They will lure you in with long term incentives that they have no intention paying you off with, they treat... employees badly. Don’t be convinced easily with perks and amenities any company can flash you with words and flashy things but at the end of the day these bozos don’t deliver. This company is not what you think the executive staff runs a mediocre web page making a living profiting off the community listing other people’s property to make a fee. A hotel builds a building and caters your needs these people would have you stay with anyone one off the street with no concern about you or your loved ones.

    Former Employee - Cx Support 
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Perks were insane, some great people, great office spaces.

    Cons

    A LOT of people in management and upper management who do not belong there by any means. Zero attention to bugs or resolving them and products and new features are almost always rolled out unfinished or with issues for the media attention and then quickly sidelined. Far too many "interim" roles which are basically a huge shaft to both the person in the role and the people depending on them. Many employees are... obscenely entitled from years of perks. Things seem to be getting worse with the opening of numerous wework offices that completely disregard what used to be an obsessive attention to company culture and the jamming of far too many people into offices. Office culture is incredibly immature and borderline toxic with gossip and pettiness. Despite a mission that is literally "belong anywhere" they continue to support listings in illegal Israeli settlements and will not touch this issue no matter how many times employees bring it up.
