      Capital is cool , slackers get away just fine - highly competitive people seem to slog but mostly depends on your manager !

      Big place, depends greatly on location, LOB, team, etc. My experience here and elsewhere is that work life balance has a lot more to do with the precedent and expectations you set early on.

    I've heard it's terrible at Stripe. They had to scrap unlimited vacay because no one was taking any.

      Not true. It was a mix. Some folks were taking too much and some weren’t taking enough.

    I feel like I’m missing something in this thread but Atlassian’s work-life balance (at least in US) is pretty great.

      Pretty great by Bay Area standards? I’ve noticed the standards are very very different vs other parts of the world.

    depends on the team. Pretty good if you don't join a product team with lots of big launches.
