Hi all! Im wondering how the culture is at slack at the moment. I’m complentating a career change and am approaching the end of the process with slack.
It looks like the company has grown a lot pretty quickly, and the stock is starting to settle after the IPO. How are things there (compensation, work/life balance, morale, intersting work, etc....)? I’d appreciate your thoughts!
Folks also take WLB very seriously and when the day is done, you are expected to go home.
Morale is quite high, which I was surprised by given the drop in stock value from IPO levels. For example, the last post made to internal Slack section on blind was over 5 months ago! Nobody seems to have anything to b*tch about.
The perks (SF office) offered are at or above anything that a "cool" bay area company offers these days, except two things:
- No daily lunch and dinner (lunch served on Mondays, HH on Thursdays and breakfast on Fridays)
- No unlimited PTO. Standard offer is 3 weeks.
Comp: If you can bring competing offers, Slack gets really close to Tier-1 levels of pay. Especially in engg.
Overall, it's a great place to be with a few minor shortcomings.
