    I have been working at Etsy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Etsy is a wonderful place if you can handle a fast paced, ever changing environment. I've been here for almost 4 years and the company has been nothing but supportive of me and my career and especially in times when things personally were not great. The company deeply cares about us as humans and for that I am thankful.

    Cons

    The only con is that we move too quickly at times, because of that we do often have to change directions which can cause a lot of fatigue among teams

    I have been working at Etsy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Plenty of career growth opportunities here and ability to have a huge impact. You don't usually get this with as large of a company (or as much technical scale) as we have: it's a pretty special place from that regard. The culture is also great. We have progressive benefits (half a year of parental leave!), yummy snacks, and engaged leadership that really knows what's going on in individual teams and is excited to speak to individuals on those teams.

    Cons

    Things move quick here. The people who are most successful tend to be comfortable working through ambiguity.

    I have been working at Etsy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    What a great place to work! Family nature, great work to do, caring people & teams, fun work to do and fun atmosphere. I expected to land in a new job that I would love after my great interview experience with the team; but, that was surpassed. I am very happy to be here!

    Cons

    No much, maybe that I would like move coffee on my floor :)

    I have been working at Etsy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Super creative and supportive team doing great things for great sellers. There's something magical about working at a mission-driven company. The new leadership is taking us to new heights.

    Cons

    Long time employees who got comfortable with doing the minimum are unhappy with the new direction and it's annoying to try to motivate them.

    "The poster of this review is entitled to their opinion, but as the actual Director of Support at Etsy (now and at the time the review was written), I feel it's my responsibility to say that this is not my post."
