    Pros

    - Incredible, talented coworkers who actually care about the business and team as a whole - politics present, but kept to a minimum level. -flexible working hours and free lunches!

    Cons

    - Evening meetings with Korea can make WLB tricky for some people -Improvements can be made about inter-team comms -Pay is slightly below standard for a tech company in Downtown Seattle, not too serious though since benefits are pretty generous - Growing pains! our team is still not big enough to cope with insane growth. -can't get to experience the exciting part in Korea(they don't operate in USA for ecommerce :( )

    Pros

    Unique in the sense that its largest unicorn (more than a billion dollar valuation but still not public) e-commerce company where more than 70% traffic is through mobile. Lots of opportunities for innovation due to the intersection of mobile first , fully cloud based and application of machine learning its popular apps. Its focus on unique and most superior last mile delivery experience for customers gets a lots of unique things done in logistics and fulfillment. Contributions are promptly recognized and rewarded.

    Cons

    It's still a startup and has huge investments from multiple venture capital firms. It is doing well , growth more than 40% YoY but the leeway is pretty less they have to keep growing at this pace . Unlike Amazon in the USA, Coupang will face stiff competition from heavy weight like SK group ... Also , late evening meetings are tilts the work life balance a bit . However, they compensate that by having flexible work hour policy. Regarding Mid-level managers , there a lot of senior Individual contributors from big technology companies , who have been either elevated to Management role or been hired as managers and their lack of experience in managing smart IC's shows up at times.

    Pros

    The company is doing very well, and is on track to be a huge player in the global e-commerce market. Any role (engineering, analytics, marketing, etc) will have a chance to work on a massive scale that impacts millions of people.

    Cons

    If you're looking for an extremely regimented work environment, you should know that Coupang is run more like a startup with a flat hierarchy.
