    I have been working at Square full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Company culture: the culture at Square is amazing and one of my favorite things about this company. People take the time to get to know others and constantly have check-ins with people across different departments. -Incredible employee benefits: great 401k, dental, health, vision, and other benefits you wouldn't even think of. I was shocked at everything offered -Mission of economic empowerment: everyone at Square works so hard in order to accomplish our mission of economic empowerment. The work we do is truly inspiring which I can't say about any other place I've worked. Our sellers are always thanking us for helping them which makes it that much better. -People: every team is different, but i love the people on my team. They're always willing to collaborate and work on different projects to get things done. Lots of brainstorming goes on -Leadership: across the board is great. every leadership member is such an expert in their space and willing to share their knowledge and be transparent with the entire company that you're constantly learning and understanding new things. they truly are people to look up to and who you aspire to be

    Cons

    Sometimes with such a large company, it can be hard to keep track of everything going on. Like any other large company, it can also be hard to move up - but that doesn't mean your salary and equity don't get increased every year.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Square full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free Food, Good benefits (health insurance, maternity/paternity leave of 4 months, commuter benefits, somewhat of a 401k match), flexible PTO, multiple office options to choose as homebase.

    Cons

    You could not negotiate salary if you were hired/promoted into another role/department. Rules and policy in my department changed constantly. PTO was hard to come by and was always a point of contention among those in Customer Success. Not all leads managed equally - someone might allow you to work from home, while another one would always deny it. Company culture is very cliquey... it was very hard to make friends.
