    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Golden handcuffs - free food, great benefits, 401(k) matching, etc. I never left work later than 6:30.

    Cons

    CS org was totally mismanaged. It was dissolved in NYC and SF. Internal mobility is a joke. In NYC office, teams are siloed and there's a palpable "pre-IPO" vs "post-IPO" employee split.

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

    Pros

    * People are generally nice and experienced * Great benefits and stocks * Generally easy going performance review cycles * Upper management seem to want to listen, but don't do much or have the power to change things * Career development is good but depends on the team

    Cons

    * All the good folks who actually want to innovate/build have either joined Cash or left the company. Everyone else is complacent * Little sense of ownership and too much bureaucracy making it hard to make an impact * Quality of Project/product management org is poor
