    I have been working at Stripe full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great office environment Humble and friendly people all around Awesome medical and work/life benefits

    Cons

    Ineffective and inexperience managers: I have seen many people managers promoted into their roles without any real training or prior experience at all. People management involves being responsible for the growth, wellbeing and career trajectories of actual human beings, Too many junior managers at Stripe simply given the role of managing a team without having any clue what they are supposed to do on a day to day basis. This results in ALOT of unnecessary attrition of otherwise good talent which I have personally witnessed. Not enough emphasis and importance placed on the growth of APAC offices, product localisation, new market launches, local pain points and talent development are often overlooked/deprioritised and severe lack of internal mobility that is otherwise seen in the US/EMEA offices.

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

    Pros

    - Smartest yet most humble people I've worked with - People are generally very nice and humble - Strong focus on trust + transparency internally that allows you to learn _alot_ - Very easy to access and voice your opinions to execs (several forums to interact with them directly) - Strong focus on rigorous thinking and not doing things simply because $competitor_x or $tech_company_y are doing it

    Cons

    - Sounds cliché but the company's focus on being "nice" can get in the way of getting work done
