How often do you see PIPs at Pinterest? On a scale of 1 to Facebook/Netflix, where do they stand?

Is there anxiety associated with working at Pinterest, like do you constantly worry about meeting expectations?

    Anxiety stems from the company disappearing in the next 5 years

      Pinterest isn't doing that bad. If Snap is still around I'm sure Pinterest will be fine.

      Seriously how do you work at Google and have no reasoning and logic behind your comments.

      A 10+B valued company with a 1+B revenue doesn’t vanish like that.

      “Pinterest isn't doing that bad. If Snap is still around I'm sure Pinterest will be fine.” This is accurate.

      @Rredington, any observations related to PIP at Pinterest?

      Nope, I have not been involved in any from either side in my time at Pinterest, so I can’t really speak to them at the company, but I have experience in both sides at previous companies.

      It wouldn’t have been that bad if there’s open communication. But the major challenge I see is managers using PIP as a political tool. Creating that pressure on employees, even if they are good working.

      Amazon would have been a better choice than Netflix, there’s no PIP here.

      No PIP: you just get fired

  • They became more aggressive on pip recently, each mgr has been assigned certain quota of pip. Heard about engs laid off because of perf. So just fyi.

      Whoa, that is concerning as I was considering joining. Can you elaborate on the quota aspect?
      Is it structured in a way to where a manager has to essentially find someone to PIP every quarter/year?
