      I worked at Airbnb full-time

      Pros

      Great culture, amazing product, some nice benefits. Good location.

      Cons

      Most sales related roles aren't challenging. The product spreads mainly by word of mouth, and the through the odd partnership. The UK office was so far detached from HQ that all the decisions were centralised with no creative authority being given outside of the US. Pay was low but that's the price you pay to work for one of the top tech brands on the planet.

      Advice to Management

      Empower satellite offices to make decisions. Give employees a roadmap and incentives to stay and progress through the company.

      Pros

      You have some great execs who came in with leadership experience running a big team whom you can learn from.

      Cons

      The HR leadership team is very political, short sighted and never spend any time with the team coaching, guiding and role modeling the core values of the company.

      Advice to Management

      Get rid of the HR leadership team

      Exciting and ambitious company, good people, fun and friendly atmosphere, office trips, travel coupon perk.

      Minimum amount of holidays, gaps between the local offices and San Francisco headquarter, lack of processes and structure can result in chaos.

      Advice to Management

      Create and provide better structure for the team and communication. Improve connection and communication between the local office and San Francisco.
