    I have been working at Etsy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I've worked at Etsy for over 5 years and 2 things that are still 100% true is that Etsy is a company where you can bring your full self to work and everybody who works there goes out of their way to be helpful. We have always strived to be a welcoming place full of diverse people and ideas. The thing I appreciate about the new executive leadership is that that is still true and we're getting better at being more transparent...

    Cons

    Planning, coordination, and prioritization continue to be areas that are undefined by Etsy's established culture and practices. This often can feel like chaos. As mentioned in the Pros section, everybody who works there truly cares about the company and their projects and strives to be helpful, but there can still be a lot of friction and overhead when it comes to resolving project conflicts (deadlines, staffing, etc)....

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve the guiding strategy such that it can be more actionable for prioritization (as mentioned in the Cons). Continue to work to add company-wide coordination and planning as a first-class aspect of Etsy culture and know-how.

    I have been working at Etsy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company has a more pragmatic and focused approach for the strategy set forth.

    Cons

    For old time employees, it takes some adjusting - for new-comers, now is a great time to join.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Some part of the pre-2017 organisation, process and tools is untouched.

    Cons

    A lot of great people - technical and management leaders - left willingly soon after the massive lay-offs.

    Advice to Management

    Put your people and customers first. Not Edge funds.
