    I worked at Airbnb for less 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 platform and as such, communities interact periodically, this budget was used sparingly, and barely one meetup was organised, when in fact there was a need of atleast 2 meetups a month. But such ideas were always shot down citing budgets and lack of achieving the objective. The objective which somehow changed during every planning session. The micromanagement, and the doublespeak in terms of acquiring new hosts was demotivating. It is as if the independence that was promised at the beginning of the job was not there at all. If you are a contractor here, you are going to be a contractor only.

    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 less 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. - Looks good on the CV but not worth the struggle of reporting to managers who shouldn't be there in the first place. - Pretty superficial work.

    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.
