    I worked at Etsy

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, stunning offices. Dog friendly office, most people were very nice

    Cons

    Constant chaos, massive blame culture. Politics and mind games in HR was the worst I have ever encountered in over 11 years of being in the workforce. Work life balance was a mixed bag. Some team members taking complete advantage of it whilst others were clearly suffering from stress as a result of not being allowed to log off without fear of being reprimanded. Unreasonable escalations seemed regular and very common...

    Pros

    Incredibly values aligned business which places employees and community at the centre of all decisions. Every employee is committed to Etsy's mission and lives it daily with all interactions. Highly collaborative environment where openness and transparency is encouraged. Fast paced and challenging work environment with great rewards! Great place to work!

    Cons

    There is sometimes a downside of fast paced and challenging, and that's Work Life Balance, however Etsy has a very flexible approach to when times are busy.

    Advice to Management

    As we grow Internationally being mindful of global timezones and involving international input with project enhancements / roll outs for process improvements

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

      Pros

      Etsy is a top leader in benefits, a warm and caring culture. Very focused on D&I, a vibrant and inclusive community. The mission is great and employees are passionate about the cause. Very intelligent colleagues with an incredible amount of best practice to learn from.

      Cons

      Decision-making is pretty centralized at the exec team level, with more of a "command and control" approach to strategy and decision-making.

      Advice to Management

      You have an incredibly talented team, would encourage trusting your team and delegating more decision-making.
