    I worked at Airbnb

    Pros

    One the surface, one of the greatest places to work. Everyone is friendly, talented, and driven. They feed you three meals a day, and the food is GREAT. There are also kitchens everywhere with unlimited drinks, snacks, coffee, espresso, cookies, and so on. Benefits are out of this world. Pay is out of this world. Office is located in the city so no hopping on a bus to South Bay.

    Cons

    Leadership is still figuring things out. Half of the staff is contractors. They claim to never have headcount to hire anyone new, but the company hires 50+ people a week. Because everyone here is so talented, everyone feels like they need to have an opinion on everything which causes confusion and things to happen very slowly.
