Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Etsy gearbeitet
Benefits, work life balance, mission, and positive impact on the world
A lot of bad managers who have no clue how to manage people. People get promoted to or hired for manager positions without regards to their people skills, leading to bad chemistry on many teams. Career progression can be very slow and coupled with below par compensation for many positions, it's hard to build a long term career here. Tooling is falling behind and internal systems are not reliable. Pervasive fear of change and boldness especially due to fear of sellers and an overbearing legal team. Management doesn't listen.
Rat an das Management
Consider both hard skills and people skills for evaluating managers. Get more efficient and bolder. Reward hard work and make Etsy an attractive place to work for strong performers.
Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juni 2015 bei Etsy (Berlin).
The interview via Skype was very brief. I assume by admitting I don't use Skype often I immediately eliminated myself from the running. Funny thing was I'd actually skyped 8 times in the prior week, all with friends or their spouses in three countries who have each worked at least 15 years at various large corporations in high level managerial positions. (Their mock interviews were much more intensive and difficult than the real one.) Unfortunately I didn't mention this nor the reason I don't use Skype often is because I'm too busy and prefer to communicate on the phone so I can multi-task (clean, organize, cook, do laundry), something which is difficult when you are sitting in front of a computer looking at someone.
I received an email requesting an interview a week after applying for the job online. The interview was about 10 days later and then I didn't hear anything for another 3 weeks after inquiring via email.
Glassdoor wants a city for where the interview took place. The problem is if its over Skype, then its taking place in two cities, in this case New York and Berlin.
