Hi- I am considering a move from amazon to try a different company culture and leadership. I’ve been at amazon for 5 years, am still learn new things everyday, but feel a change will be good.

Do any of you have insights into working at Airbnb? Company culture? Challenging work? Compensation? Seattle office openings?

Thanks

    Honestly, I’d wait or look elsewhere. Big internal challenges at the moment. A lot of recent transfers regret the move. But depending on role and team, your experience could be different.

      I’m not sure if the reorg materially impacts anyone except few upper level managers who are gaining/losing direct reports? Also why do you see it as a Titanic situation? Growth rate is not rocketship level but not bad given business size

      I’m not sure how that survey can be reliable. During a QA Beth said we had like 8 reported incidents in the past year. The survey says it required 50 responses?

      Interesting. I’ve never even remotely experienced anything like harassment and have never witnessed it. i guess I’m not attractive enough lol

    Culture is excellent. Work is challenging. My comp is great, I don’t know about others. Seattle has 100 employees with plans to scale up to 400+.

    Reorg wasn’t that big of a change, as many existing teams shuffled around into different orgs and remained intact.

    Pretty happy here overall. I think the comp can beat Amazon generally, esp with refreshers and the recent bonus addition

    Generally higher than amazon if you trust the equity/valuation

    I heard there is an upcoming reorganization. I would recommend waiting out until dust settles.

    OP
    Thanks for sharing inputs about the internal reorganization.
    Any sense of comp?
