    I worked at Etsy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Etsy is a top leader in benefits, a warm and caring culture. Very focused on D&I, a vibrant and inclusive community. The mission is great and employees are passionate about the cause. Very intelligent colleagues with an incredible amount of best practice to learn from.

    Cons

    Decision-making is pretty centralized at the exec team level, with more of a "command and control" approach to strategy and decision-making.

    Advice to Management

    You have an incredibly talented team, would encourage trusting your team and delegating more decision-making.

    The employees here really care, but some might be overworked.

    I worked at Etsy full-time for more than 2 years

    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...

    Advice to Management

    1. Bring in experienced PM leadership. PM management that has worked hands-on on highly-scaled, complex, consumer businesses besides Etsy. 2. Reexamine strategic objectives process - how, who, and when KPIs are determined, reported, etc. - and how you decide desired customer outcomes and what to build. 3. Work on people and culture. The mission is hypocritical if people aren't being decent humans to each other....
