    Pros

    The tool makes life so much easier. It allows you to get a perfect work-life balance, being more organize, achieve more, challenge yourself in the good direction ... The company values are great, the team is amazing ...

    Cons

    Hyper Growth leads to a lot of changes internally so you need to thrive in ambiguity

    I worked at Asana full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Benefits - Salary, Health, Free food etc Some great people

    Cons

    How the company is presented is not what it's like on the inside Passive aggressiveness is the norm Cultish vibe Unfortunately this company is not all it's cracked up to be. If you are starting out your career, it could suit you, but don't go here if you've any experience behind you, it won't matter. It's the Asana way or the highway. Diversity & inclusion goes out the window, they may have the stats, but realistically, you have to learn to talk in a certain way & act in certain way to survive (you do get coaching on this, which is weird in itself).

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

    Pros

    Mindfulness is a buzzword at a lot of companies right now, but Asana is genuinely committed to making sure that people have a good work/life balance, and I think that people here really believe that this balance promotes productivity rather than hindering it. I've never worked somewhere where it honestly feels like so many people are contributing to building something bigger together, and not just that they're fighting to have an individual contribution recognized while keeping their head above water. A lot of that is represented in the product itself - since we're all using Asana every day we're geared towards collaboration in a way that I think is rare. After being here over a year I still really believe in the product, in the business strategy the company is pursuing, and in my colleagues too.

    Cons

    As with most tech companies, there's a very flat structure which can make progression feel difficult or opaque, and a certain amount of initiative is required in finding interesting projects to work on. If you're comfortable with expanding your skills and have a manager who is sensitive to these needs though, it's much less of a problem.
