      I'm consistently impressed

      Pros

      The culture at Atlassian is probably the biggest draw. There are people who often might not necessarily value culture as much, but the culture here is the very reason why it's a great place to work. I'm constantly being impressed by the consideration around policy, work style, trust, and caring shown by management toward their direct reports at Atlassian. I'm also very impressed by my peers. There's a good reason the stock ticker is TEAM. Because that's precisely how people act here. People are caring and will go out of their way to help each other. I've felt very valued while working here. Their onboarding process is the best I've experienced, with lots of dialogue to ensure success. The training is pretty solid too, with a plan for ready for me on day one about how my first 90 days would go. That's pretty rare, especially given how well thought out it was. Being in a high technical field can be chaotic and stressful at times, but there's a lot of attention on employee and team well being. You won't run into issues where you're simply told "this is the way we're doing it".

      Cons

      The type of work can be demanding, but that is expected. The fact that I can't think of anything else that is a con should say a lot.

      Great Culture, Amazing Benefits, Humble Leadership

      Mar 7, 2021 - Senior Enterprise Advocate in Austin, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The benefits are incredible. With a family of four, all healthcare benefits are paid. Atlassian works hard to make sure the employees are taken care of and it shows. They invest in programs to support the mental health of everyone and provide ways to connect with others virtually (through the Pandemic). The leaders are open to feedback and are transparent, answering the tough questions in company-wide meetings, even when it's hard. The culture has been painstakingly cultivated to include all kinds of people. As a parent of a trans child, this in particular has been inspiring to see. There is an emphasis on promotion from within, and there are opportunities to grow your skills to serve the company in new ways.

      Cons

      As an organization that has grown through acquisition, not all systems are integrated, which can make for a difficult experience in learning how to do your day-to-day job. Atlassian is a largely self-organized, self-driven set of software nerds (I count myself among them and don't say that as an insult), as such, it can be difficult to find a human to help you to find answers. It's written down somewhere on a Confluence page, but everything is in Confluence, and if you lack the history and navigational expertise in that platform, it can be very hard to find what you need. Support is always a ticket, but I'm never sure what kind of ticket, what help desk, etc. Be prepared to have lots of systems to learn.

      Pros

      This is my first ever Glassdoor review. I was compelled to write this review as my experience was really great. - Managers trust his/her team and give complete ownership to execute the project work. - Company Values are not superficial, they really mean it and execute it daily basis - Cross team communication is just great - Communication is clear and transparent - Leaders and managers are empathetic and understands if there is any adverse situation. - High appreciation culture, appreciate even on smallest things - They encourage to take leave, refresh and come back

      Cons

      Nothing as of now! Keep up the Great work

      Culture maketh the company

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Amazing people with a lot of talent. Company and managers are always ensuring the best interest of the people and there's a lot of support available within the company for when you need it. Atlassian is a company that aggressively lives it values and weighs everything against it unlike most other companies where the only real value is making money.

      Cons

      It suffers from some symptoms of a large company trying to act like a startup. However, there's no real con to speak of.

      One of the best IT companies

      May 17, 2021 - Customer Support in Bangalore

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company provides an open culture and an easy way communicate within the organisation. Atlassian isn't perfect as a company and don't think there is one out there that checks all the boxes. Everyone in Atlassian (leadership level) are aware about this and hence are constantly trying to make things better.

      Cons

      There are areas that Atlassian can improve as a company; every company has these. There is enough trust for me to discuss these with the leadership and sort those out.

      Great Company with Amazing Values

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The work-life balance is amazing, the teams really care for people in the team. The Work is also interesting and anything you do will show an impact on Atlassian customers. The initiatives are great. The benefits are incredible. With a family of four, all healthcare benefits are paid. Atlassian works hard to make sure the employees are taken care of and it shows. The leaders are open to feedback and are transparent, answering the tough questions in company-wide meetings, even when it's hard. Open company is perfectly apt for this company. The TEAM anywhere is an amazing concept and opportunity for employees to work remotely, the way you like it from anywhere.

      Cons

      It's hard to find a company with so many good things and pay you better than this company.

      Cons

      - Pace is a bit slow - If you are not working for a core team, might not be as much tech challenge every day, you need to challenge yourself by 20% time and other opportunity

      I want to retire here

      Apr 29, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in Sydney
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Work perks such as food, drinks, generous allowances for equipment - Open company with no BS - everything is disclosed and there are no loaded management emails/decisions that do not eventuate - Great team, very easy to work with people in other teams and divisions - Smart people and awesome managers that bring out the best in people

      Cons

      Atlassian offers its staff miles more than any other company out there, although the vast majority of staff value what Atlassian provides, there are some that expect more. Said staff should really work for other companies (e.g. investment banks) to appreciate what Atlassian has to offer.

      Cons

      There is a learning curve with how to work with different teams through tickets and slack channels / leveraging Confluence if you haven't before It's not a typical sales role There is some confusion among teams with delegation of authority and who owns what when working with a customer
