    Disapproves of CEO

    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).

    Advice to Management

    You are running a business, not a yoga hub. Get some senior, experienced professionals in to help you, then let them manage the change required. Communication via Asana product as the company grows is not working, it suits some, but not all - stop the keyboard warriors & the trolls, they passive aggressively crush people. It's creating a toxic environment & you can't even see it.
