    I worked at Airbnb full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The community is inspiring and Airbnb offers a great experience for most guests. Most staff really care about the world around them. Some incredibly smart and inspiring people used to work here, and a few of them are still around.

    Cons

    Large, slow moving bureaucracy. Completely impersonal experience as an employee. Real lack of strategic focus or understanding of users from middle management. Highly political culture. Complete misalignment of organisational design vs. problems that need to be solved. Very far from meritocratic. Not enough people with experience of making genuine impact when dealing with uncertainty. Collective decision making is worse here than in any other company I have ever encountered. Fear driven decision making.

    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.
