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

      Pros

      -Culture -Smart Executives -Genuine and intelligent people -Impressive and well curated office spaces -Creative and fun company events (community hours, talent shows, etc.) The company has had an impressive turnaround from layoffs and through uncertain times and most current employees are optimistic about the present and future.

      Cons

      Passion and intelligence alone does not equal a job well done. Continue to improve internal communications, teamwork, leadership, etc.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to successfully make smart business decisions, with our sellers and employees best interest in mind.

      Pros

      Teams, culture, flexibility, technology work/life balance

      there can be a lot of over communication and little to no email discipline. I spend a large part of my time informing people on what I do and have done instead of doing...

      Keep investing in technology.

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

      Pros

      - Company strategy seems much more focused than before the change in leadership - I currently work on more impactful projects than I did before - I work with really smart people every day - I'm always learning new things - My manager(s) have always made space for me to tackle new challenges to grow my skillset - My manager(s) have always been very kind and thoughtful, and take feedback well - Compared to every place...

      Cons

      - HR and people management in general is a bit messy -- it's not always clear how you can get promoted or get a raise - Product org has lacked senior leadership for a very long time, leading to sub-optimal product management processes and a lack of overall product strategy. Onboarding for product managers seems to be nonexistent, and I see us hiring a lot of very junior PMs who might be very smart, but seem to me somewhat...

      Advice to Management

      Set a higher bar for Product Managers, or take more time to support junior PMs in their growth. Be more open and transparent about compensation policies -- invite more discourse, rather than making a change and announcing it without room for folks to ask for change (even though they do anyway, thankfully!).

      Pros

      Amazing culture. Supportive, positive atmosphere. Massively talented and passionate employees. Great perks, good pay.

      Cons

      Too many meetings, too much formal feedback too frequently. Health, 401k, and vacation time are average.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the great work. Scale back a bit of the goal setting and feedback to a manageable cadence. It's a positive process, just too frequent.
