A SquareSpace recruiter reached out to me recently for a engineering position in NYC.
I have read a lot of bad reviews on Glassdoor, so I am wondering if I should avoid going there for an onsite, thoughts?
The ICs are usually pretty good across the board but management is questionable. Lots of team leads, managers, and directors with little management experience or training and don’t know how to manage. It’s hard to get promoted or get meaningful raises. We haven’t figured out how to do product management so projects aren’t well planned and managed at all. New feature work is always prioritized over performance and reliability improvements so the codebase is riddled with tech debt.
The few longer and more well written reviews on Glassdoor are pretty accurate. Feel free to DM me if you have specific questions.
