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

    Pros

    Great product, fantastic teammates, engaging problem space

    Cons

    Engineering lacks strategic vision, company is disorganized, it feels like we reorg every three months. Tech debt keeps piling up and products don't ship due to lack of engineering accountability and management infighting

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Etsy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Positive mission and purpose, the customers are inspiring and loyal. And there is still a lot of potential in the marketplace to help them thrive. 2. The engineering team is full of collaborative and talented people. 3. The compensation, benefits, work/life balance and facilities are all really solid and a good model for others to follow.

    Cons

    1. Communication and data between teams doesn't flow freely but rather siloed and selectively. A handful of negative players appear to thrive here creating unhealthy friction. 2. The PM role lacks a strategic outlook and there is limited growth opportunities. Most are essentially pushed to manage projects, not deliver outcomes. 3. The PM org is being run by someone that never worked as a product manager w/ a management team that hasn't led product at scale for consumer tech businesses. 4. It's not a learning culture. At the end of every quarter, for example, there is a freakout, reshuffling of teams, tactics, etc. because some unrealistic goal(s) won't be hit.

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

    Pros

    Etsy is a place where you'll meet people you'll keep in touch with for a lifetime. The people and the energy is so special. Pros: working with people with strong empathy; the best engineering team. both teams i've been on at my time here have the most talented and generous engineers ever.

    Cons

    It's a large company, with a lot of products and a lot of research material so it takes a while to ramped up on everything.
