    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Square full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Strong people-first culture - Pockets of innovation - Smart, generally hardworking people - Interesting projects and lots of cross functional work - Good benefits and perks - Lots of freedom and autonomy

    Cons

    - Certain teams (most famously, Corporate Development) are horrendously low performing and mismanaged - Unclear ownership of key initiatives - Lack of executive engagement - Lots of unskilled managers promoted to oversee large / critical teams

    Advice to Management

    There are key functions with incredibly pervasive problems. Until management makes high performance a priority, these will persist and spill over to other parts of the company.
