Featured Review

Current Employee - Product Manager

I have been working at Spotify full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Focus on work-life balance Benefits for mental health, hobbies & work team building Flexible holiday and 6 months Pat/mat leave Very transparent senior leadership Great company values and... treatment of employees

Cons

- Sometimes a little chaotic - Some projects struggle to get priority at leadership level meaning you're stuck a little in limbo. - Some start-up ways of working still present in Spotify as a large... company meaning it takes a little longer to onboard and get up to speed. - Can be hard to move upwards as people stay for so long.

Advice to Management

Focus on less things at a time and really close them out before moving on. Hire post focus not before to avoid teams in limbo Use the squad model more effectively to shift teams focus rather than... hiring new teams.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Ably full-time for less than a year

Pros

Everyone is looked after at a human level and Ably genuinely care about each individual and their development. You get to work with some incredibly talented people and are afforded the room to fail... fast and improve.

Cons

None I can think of!

Advice to Management

Keep sharing the good, the bad and the ugly. It's great to feel a part of the journey no matter what.
