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

    Pros

    Overall good culture and mission Great leadership team Great office and perks

    Cons

    Some teams are pretty dysfunctional and top-down WLB is often not as advertised and doesn’t offset the lower comp (vs other tech companies) No bonus, stock refreshers are rare

    I have been working at Spotify full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Colleagues, Good product, positive culture. It's really nice to be in a place where you use the products that you are supporting, and where the candidates and people you work with are

    Cons

    Sometimes a lack of clarity on what our individual goals/growth should be. There are a ton of different areas for expansion and it can be hard to pare them all down to actionable items.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - really cool organisation doing some pretty cutting edge things - pretty diverse group of people working here compared to other places I've worked, leadership seems to be taking D&I seriously as well - pre-COVID times -- stockholm office is incredibly international, super easy to feel at home as an expat in Sweden - the best work life balance I've ever had at any company (helps to be working in Sweden, for sure) - company has really considerate policies around COVID, providing extra monetary support and emphasising mental/physical health and safety

    Cons

    - as an audio platform, we're still figuring out how to navigate our content policy, and i wish we'd listen more to the most marginalised employees/listeners we have - a lot of re-orgs can be hectic
