    Pros

    I have been working for 4 months at Deliveroo for an internship.
    It was a really cool experience as the team is young, supportive and dynamic.

    Cons

    The opportunity to have a long term position is hard.

    Pros

    Really flexible, no one really cares if you can't work. I reckon it's impossible to get fired.

    Cons

    Management are basically nonexistent and impossible to contact. If you want to transfer to another city, good luck.

    I worked at Deliveroo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really cool and fun environment to work, I had a lot of fun and meet amazing people. You can definitely grow, have a lot of responsibilities and it's good. The CEO is really inspiring and an amazing person and he is doing a great job.

    Cons

    Growing too fast, too many people who want to get involved in projects, really bad organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Bad management, I highly recommend to review most of the managers and the organisation.

    Pros

    Amazing company doing innovative things in tech. Transparent, collaborative and inclusive environment, everybody respected equally, great management and exciting projects. Flexible working, lots of free food, and a ton of opportunities for socialising outside of work hours.

    Cons

    We're a big company now and communication can sometimes be missed, however that's clearly unintentional and always being worked on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Fabulous culture that values diversity of thinking and experience. People work hard to get things done together. Strong vision, great communication amongst teams and leadership, lots of fun and challenging problems to solve, plus the lovely food!

    Cons

    It is a real, tech startup, so if you like corporate structures and a slower pace, this is isn't the place for you!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. you've laid out a solid focus, enabled innovation, been really honest and transparent (communicative), and are "keeping it real" despite the growing pains of intense growth. Proud to be a Roo.
