    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.

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

    Pros

    This position has a lot of earning potential as commission is not capped.

    There is no work/life balance. You will find yourself answering emails and working during your own hours to achieve the necessary success
