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

    Pros

    The leadership org is cognizant of of pain points and actively seeks to improve There is a cohesive culture where it feels most everyone believes in the mission to humanize eCommerce I have noticed that if you are honest about your career trajectory, management will give you a roadmap Great work life balance

    Cons

    Some roles could use a more defined scope. If you are interviewing for a role here, make sure that you ask about your first 30/60/90 days and what success looks like for that time period.

    I have been working at Etsy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working at Etsy has been a great experience for the last 3 years. It's been up and down, but in a good way. We definitely move fast, and are constantly changing and pivoting but in this industry it is paramount that we are continuously iterating on our roadmap to stay competitive. We celebrate wins, we are inclusive, we care about the environment and about our social and economic impact. Etsy really cares about you. You...

    Cons

    The only thing I'd say that is a con is that moving quickly and changing directions can get a little exhausting for some. So in order to be successful at Etsy, you have to be resilient and not take it personally if we decide to change directions every now and then. Some folks feel like they have great work life balance, others might not. But it really depends on the environment you came from. We definitely work really...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - continue to be transparent in communication, listen to us as employees and celebrate wins.

    Pros

    Great product, fantastic teammates, engaging problem space

    Cons

    Engineering lacks strategic vision, company is disorganized, it feels like we reorg every three months. Tech debt keeps piling up and products don't ship due to lack of engineering accountability and management infighting

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

    Pros

    Etsy is a top leader in benefits, a warm and caring culture. Very focused on D&I, a vibrant and inclusive community. The mission is great and employees are passionate about the cause. Very intelligent colleagues with an incredible amount of best practice to learn from.

    Cons

    Decision-making is pretty centralized at the exec team level, with more of a "command and control" approach to strategy and decision-making.

    Advice to Management

    You have an incredibly talented team, would encourage trusting your team and delegating more decision-making.

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

    Pros

    1. Positive mission and purpose, the customers are inspiring and loyal. And there is still a lot of potential in the marketplace to help them thrive. 2. The engineering team is full of collaborative and talented people. 3. The compensation, benefits, work/life balance and facilities are all really solid and a good model for others to follow.

    Cons

    1. Communication and data between teams doesn't flow freely but rather siloed and selectively. A handful of negative players appear to thrive here creating unhealthy friction. 2. The PM role lacks a strategic outlook and there is limited growth opportunities. Most are essentially pushed to manage projects, not deliver outcomes. 3. The PM org is being run by someone that never worked as a product manager w/ a management...

    Advice to Management

    1. Bring in experienced PM leadership. PM management that has worked hands-on on highly-scaled, complex, consumer businesses besides Etsy. 2. Reexamine strategic objectives process - how, who, and when KPIs are determined, reported, etc. - and how you decide desired customer outcomes and what to build. 3. Work on people and culture. The mission is hypocritical if people aren't being decent humans to each other....

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

    Pros

    - Good pay & benefits. A lot of opportunities to learn. Great office perks.

    Cons

    - Very demanding. Depending on the role, it's hard to put in just 40 hours a week and get your job done.

    Advice to Management

    The employees here really care, but some might be overworked.
