    I have been working at Slack full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - You work with awesome, like-minded and accepting people who are driven to succeed and help you succeed - Great company culture and perks - Even starting my job with Slack from home due to Covid-19, they have been very accommodating and have made me feel like a part of the team - Transparency across management - Challenging and productive work environment - Room for growth in your role, and into others roles - Managers who want you to thrive and exceed

    Cons

    - You'll have to work the odd weekend shift in this role (not often tho, and you get a day in lieu). This isn't a huge con - Not much else - Slack is the best!

    Slack has an incredible culture and leadership that is unlike anything I've seen at any other company. Everyone lives their values of being empathetic and they really care about their people. The product is amazing and the alignment between different teams is a breath of fresh air.

    Cons

    Like any fast growing organization, the need to adapt to change is prevalent.

    Cons

    - Easy to hide in the organizational shadows and do very little work - Over-sensitive culture infused with strong 'woke left' narratives and not afraid to push it in your face! - Status quo management and development culture.. repeat that week's popular phrase as stated by executives and you'll do well - Heavy in the management layers - Inappropriate leveling criteria for engineers, leading to low technical competence

    Pros

    The environment is friendly and fast-paced. There's a tagline of being here to do the best work of our lives -- and I get the sense that folks really buy into that.

    Cons

    There's a lot to learn getting started, and something changes almost every day. If you like problem solving though, this isn't an issue!
