    I have been working at Airbnb full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture, the people and the environment are unique ! Airbnb offers an amazing Work/Life balance with amazing benefits.
    The product is really great and even after 11 years it's only the beginning so many great new features to come :-)

    Cons

    Growing in the company can be tricky as it's not by working hard you'll get a promotion but by doing chit chat with the people of department you wanna go.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people for the work they do and not the useless/fake chit chat to get promoted

    Great work atmosphere, smart people, inspiring product, fast growth, loads of work, pile of benefits, from food team, to health insurance, pension, stocks, holiday vouchers, events, community work...

    Pros

    Wonderful environment, all staff are very like minded as a result of the cross functional interviews. Culture is unique. The perks are also great.

    Cons

    I think that by industry standard, they don't pay as well as other tech companies, but the culture makes up for the pay gap

    Advice to Management

    I honestly don't have any advice - we have room to grow and opportunity to move internally.

    I worked at Airbnb full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - There is a tendency for staff to complain and long for "the good old days", but in reality despite teething difficulties Airbnb is a great place to work
    - Benefits are excellent: yearly $2000 USD travel voucher, high quality food and snacks that are healthy and sustainable, pension matching, well designed and comfortable office spaces

    Cons

    - Inexperienced middle management, especially many who got promoted quickly when the company was smaller
    - Lack of open and clear communication
    - Tendency to sugar coat 'bad' news
    - Lack of growth opportunities in certain teams
    - Far too San Francisco/US-centric

    Advice to Management

    - Stop sugar coating communications, or worse not communicating at all on certain topics
