          I worked at Airbnb for more than a year

          Pros

          Very few pros I can think of, apart from a very supportive group of immediate co-workers.

          Cons

          when the senior-management had stated a parameter of quality Airbnb accommodations, without knowing how much of the said accommodations exist in the market, unrealistic targets were doled out to contractors, which were very very hard to achieve. No specifics were provided in terms of quality. There was a budget provided for educating potential hosts about how to use Airbnb, but since it is supposed to be a community-oriented...

          Advice to Management

          Please don't treat contractors like they are slaves. Please try to understand the market before you hold contractors responsible for performance. You should think twice before firing people who really want to be a part of making Airbnb big in India, but cannot do so because the kind of controlling tactics and target-achieving strategies employed by a few people in the Gurgaon office are suffocating.

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

          Pros

          It's a cool brand to work for. The business model and the company story are very inspiring. Some benefits and a pretty flexible and chilled out job.

          Cons

          - Airbnb is a great company and a great product but the brittle company culture in India will be the end of it. - Culture trickles down and dies at the middle management levels which is a disgrace for a company that claims to take its employee happiness and culture so seriously. - Chronic micromanagement. - You're learning very few tangible skills that will can be applied to other jobs. - Don't join on contract. Period....

          Advice to Management

          Know what the company stands for, how you want to do things in a market and and hire senior management people accordingly. The contractors are the ones who are executing all your plans on the ground so it only makes sense to not treat them like slaves. You are not saving the world, please take yourselves a little less seriously.

          I would run out of space typing this out but here goes. 1. No one and i mean no one has decent communication skills. Infact emails are sent out in abbreviation format. Like for is 4 and you is "u* and i could go one forever. 2. When they hire you on contract, they think they own your soul. From making WhatsApp Groups to hounding you on email with what i call terrible grammar, it's miserable to be working here. I...

          Advice to Management

          Before you fire people, get to know them a little. Make the effort to listen to people. Don't listen to a few and then make up your mind. Get a few Supply Managers who have decent diction and can type emails minus the terrible abbreviations. Don't think you know best cause of the designation or title you hold. You do not know what's going on in one market sitting in Gurgaon and neither will any one apart from the person...

          I worked at Airbnb

          Pros

          Good environment. Young enthusiastic employees. Work life balance,the company lets u travel, sends you to locations. Good job for people who like to travel and explore.

          Cons

          The job title and the work under it don't exactly match. As a quality analyst you would mostly be doing calling and checking on the users.

          I have been working at Airbnb

          Pros

          I have recently joined Airbnb and its been an exciting time. One of the best reasons to work here is the culture. The team is amazing and they all go out of their way to ensure I feel like I belong. That I am part of the Airbnb family. The office setup is so different and amazing. I would recommend Airbnb to anyone who thrives on excitement and change. Its an amazing company to be a part of.

          Cons

          Nothing I can think of. I love it here.
