From Great to TerriblePartnership ManagerFormer Employee, more than 1 yearNew York, NY
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.
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...12

-good work/life balance -lots of opportunity -fast paced I returned from mat leave not that long ago and have a different perspective on the workplace than I did before. As am ambitious person who doesn't want to have to take a step back, it's been rewarding to continue to advance, feel like I have the same opportunities as my male peers, lots of women leaders, can work from home 3 days / week, and generally feel like there isn't a stigma to being a parent.
-Artsy does a lot of different things. Sometimes it feels like too much or things can be a distraction -Some teams can be a bit siloed from the rest of the organization (though this has been improving)

Artsy has gone through a lot of change in the past few years, but with the success of the company at the core of all decisions made. Exec and sr management always try to be as open as possible (and this is much more open than other companies I've been at) and leave the door open for feedback, debate, and discussion. Flexible, supportive, and transparent HR structures allow people to get their work done in a way that suits them best, and company and team goals are out in the open. When you do good work, it's noticed around the company, lauded, and rewarded.
Wide disconnect in family leave policies btwn team members based in the US and those based in the UK. While this is driven by different national policies, and the US policy is good in comparison to some US companies, the difference is hard felt.
