    Pros

    Artsy was a fantastic place to work when I first began in 2018. Great team culture, room for growth, and exciting plans in the pipeline for the company. Growth was not always on par with goals, but progress was being made regardless. Additionally, employee perks, like snacks, offsite and the like were fantastic.

    Cons

    Within one year of working at Artsy, things deteriorated more rapidly than I've ever seen. Management took a turn for the worst, along with multiple rounds of layoffs. Shady business practices took hold on my team, and the sales team essentially had a 100% turnover rate. Finally, nearly the entire leadership team, including the two founders of the company, stepped down. Artsy is a company in rapid decline, and although it was a cool place to work - stay away...

    Pros

    The people. I've worked in many company environments and Artsy creates a very safe space for collaboration and thought partnership. It's great to work for a company where you feel trusted and encouraged to express your thoughts and opinions.

    Cons

    We're in a high growth phase which is exciting and provides opportunities to work on new 'unchartered' areas. If you're excited to stretch yourself and work through ambiguity, then this can be quite positive.

    If the art world can be transformed, Artsy will be the company to do it

    Pros

    Hands down the smartest, most empathetic and supportive group of colleagues you can hope to work with. People at Artsy are invested in the success of their peers, teams and company. The opposite of sharky sales culture. Most people are passionate about art, creativity, individuality and lots have cool creative practices on the side. Company culture emphasizes open dialogue, productive feedback, and an informal, light-hearted vibe whenever possible. Product & marketplace momentum has never been higher, catapulted by Covid. Product and marketing roll-outs that seemed wishful thinking 2 years ago are becoming reality. Artsy is miles ahead of any competitor. Executive team stacked with experience is on the ball with making sure it stays that way as the competitive landscape heats up.

    Cons

    Tough clients in an even tougher industry. Limited possibility to grow beyond senior IC role although lateral moves happen frequently. Experimental new initiatives that get rolled out quickly have led to a lot of changes in how to work with clients and partners. Can be hard to keep track of various moving pieces, especially in remote context. Changes take a lot of adjustment and bigger workloads way heavy on the teams coming out of a year of managing partners (& their emotions) non-stop through the pandemic.
