ill be working in the NYC office in an operations role (non-engineering). does anyone have any advice?

the negative glassdoor reviews are a little concerning, but of course i’ll only take this into account with a grain of salt.

    Spotify is terrible for engineering, which I'm sure is most of the glass door. Everything else is fine/normal

    It's not as bad as our rating. Most of it is in rnd, which I'll admit has been frustrating. But since you're not joining that part of the company you should be fine.
