What is health insurance like at Calendly?

Pros

So many wonderful things about Calendly: Competitive pay and benefits. Solid health insurance, unlimited PTO, etc. Work from home stipend provided, as well as, other stipends and small rewards here and there. Management cares and listens. My direct manager is actively helping me achieve my goals and move down the path that works for me. Also very open to my feedback on processes and not afraid to be honest with me about my work. During COVID, culture has been tough to keep thriving and healthy but they are striving to keep everyone happy and continuously make improvements. Overall, everyone seems sincerely genuine and hard working. I have never been happier with my job. No work place is perfect but Calendly is very close.

Cons

Not to be that guy but... I can't think of any real cons.

Advice to Management

Keep going in this direction and actively listening to your employees.

What is the retirement plan like at Calendly?

Pros

I recently started at Calendly and I can say that every single person I've met so far has been so nice, professional, and engaged/invested in learning more about me. This is the first job I've had in over 10 years where both my manager and her manager are female which is a breath of fresh air after being in quite a few male dominant companies. There is a level of transparency that I have not seen at my previous companies. We have a monthly company wide meeting where we discuss different topics and company updates. Our recent one was about D&I and how Calendly compares to other tech companies. While we still have work to do we are definitely leading the way and ahead of many other major tech companies that people usually look to first when thinking about D&I. They treat you like an adult. They trust their employees to get their work done in the way that works for them and at least on my team I don't feel like I'm being micromanaged at all. I have more freedom here than I did at my last company. Awesome perks that I think show a commitment to the start with human philosophy. Stipends to get your home office set up, vacation stipends, pick your own perk stipend, etc. The company is at the beginning of their growth curve and it is an exciting time to be apart of the team.

Cons

No 401k match right now which is a bit disappointing. I know it's something that is being kept in mind as the company continues to grow though. If you don't like change or need a lot of structure this might not be the company for you. It's a quickly growing company so sometimes priorities change or there are things that still need to be implemented from a process standpoint. I believe the leadership does a good job of communicating their plans and roadmap for growth though and seem to be very open to feedback.

Advice to Management

Continue to focus on hiring people that truly are a "culture add". With the expected growth it's important to make sure that we continue to add people that start with human and treat everyone with respect.

Does Calendly offer parental leave?

Pros

- Product that solves a real problem - Some great coworkers, especially on the support side - Good work/life balance (everyone is out the door by 4-5 p.m.)

Cons

Heed the other reviews that mention poor leadership, inappropriate comments, high attrition, and no career progression. They're accurate. Joining Calendly is not a good career move, unless you lack other options. Here's what I saw: - Senior leadership, and a few mid-level men, made a variety of inappropriate comments about women, including: commenting on a person's body during pregnancy, reduced potential for career progression while a parent of young children, and the skills that are "lost" during maternity leave, and more. - There was not a real HR department in place at the time I worked there. Issues were not addressed appropriately. - Ambiguous "head of" titles were held by women, but there were no women in real leadership roles. Few promotions except among low-level support staff and enginneering. - Very high levels of attrition. "Regrettable attrition" was so high they stopped reporting on it at company-wide meetings. - Below-par talent. Generally speaking, the best people who came in also left quickly, so you're left with a company of B-players. They also pay low-end of the market, at best. - 50% of the C-Suite when I started left within a year of joining the company. - A surprising amount of technical debt, and a somewhat stagnant product, at this point. The folks leaving recent positive reviews seem to be very junior, in support (which was the one somewhat functional part of the business), and haven't got anything else to compare this to.

Advice to Management

Unfortunately, I think these issues stem from the leadership team itself.
