    I think it’s fine. As long as you’re not dating someone in your management line or on your team. At bigger companies it’s not an issue.

      The repercussions transcend line of management. I would be a nitwit to even think about it.

      There are a more than a few work place relationships @ Airbnb that are totally fine and thriving. Some of those couples even got married at HQ.

      some airbnb engineers ive interviewed brought up the internal dating, but mentioned it like it was some weird fringe benefit.

      People are attractive, friendly, and you can date them. But I would imagine it’s the same at other large companies with less restrictive non fraternization policies.

    It depends whether she’s hot. My wife is, so totally worth it.

    Honestly I think it depends on why you’re dating. For casual relationships, I wouldn’t have even considered it. To meet a gal as amazing as my wife who I would want to settle down with? You bet.

    Only if you want to risk being blackballed from your profession and lose a ton of money.

      Wow, for dating a coworker or your boss???

    • Sapient Razorfish 4LTRU!5T
      In this political climate, either.
      Apr 21, 2018
    • Amazon omEP83
      Really? What political climate are you referring to? I believe things can go bad but I've personally not experienced it or seen it among my friends; at least, I haven't seen anything that resulted in more than just sad feelings and parted ways.

    But other wise where exactly you meet people? Asking for those who doesn’t party or workout.

    Depends. I've done it. Most recent person I've seen was a coworker who asked me out, but it was after he left the team/Amazon. I also had a fuck buddy on the same team prior to this guy asking me out, but they were bros and none of us wanted drama so it all worked out in the end.

    Best to avoid within your org/department. Certainly not in your chain of reporting

    But then you are in Uber, it’s normal and even happens a lot - including relationship between managers and reports
