    I have been working at Square full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Company culture: the culture at Square is amazing and one of my favorite things about this company. People take the time to get to know others and constantly have check-ins with people across different departments.
    -Incredible employee benefits: great 401k, dental, health, vision, and other benefits you wouldn't even think of. I was shocked at everything offered
    -Mission of economic empowerment: everyone at Square works so hard in order to accomplish our mission of economic empowerment. The work we do is truly inspiring which I can't say about any other place I've worked. Our sellers are always thanking us for helping them which makes it that much better.
    -People: every team is different, but i love the people on my team. They're always willing to collaborate and work on different projects to get things done. Lots of brainstorming goes on
    -Leadership: across the board is great. every leadership member is such an expert in their space and willing to share their knowledge and be transparent with the entire company that you're constantly learning and understanding new things. they truly are people to look up to and who you aspire to be

    Cons

    Sometimes with such a large company, it can be hard to keep track of everything going on. Like any other large company, it can also be hard to move up - but that doesn't mean your salary and equity don't get increased every year.

    Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Square.

    Interview

    Most of the communication was by phone and email. The process was transparent. Everyone I spoke to was very friendly. They all made a stressful process manageable. However, scheduling the times for each interview stage was tricky as each interviewer was located in a different time zone. Overall a positive experience
