    Working at Etsy is incredible. There is nonstop momentum, and you work for a company that ultimately does good in the world. The BK HQ is lovely, the food and atmosphere is inspiring.

    Managers aren't always held accountable for people management - more emphasis on project management.

    Pros

    Great compensation, generous RSU packages. Remote work. Amazing corporate culture and fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Hire & Fire company. I worked for Etsy for 1 year, 1 week and 1 day. My management changed and the new manager never liked me. I had a mostly ok review and then one day I found out I didn't work there any more.

    Advice to Management

    Give people opportunities to improve perceived deficiencies in their job performance instead of just ending their position.

    I have been working at Etsy full-time

    Pros

    Creative culture, friendly c-level executives, excellent benefits, beautiful office

    Cons

    People are made managers without any thought into whether they will manage well which often leads to poor communication and under supported teams.

    I have watched many co-workers treat lower level staff with incredible disrespect and I have been shocked at how this was tolerated and accepted. The company does very little to combat this and it makes for a very uncomfortable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Every job matters, every person matters, this is a team.
