Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Etsy gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)
These one star ratings are silly. The truth is, Josh Silverman has articulated a vision and created focus like I've never seen before. Most employees are generous, helpful, and fun to be around. The company is still committed to having a positive impact on the world.
Everyone is waiting to see whether Etsy is still a good place to grow a career or if it will slowly but surely burn through its experienced workforce. Don't expect training for new skills and don't expect to go to a conference without a fight.
Middle management is a mixed bag. Some are toxic and abusive. Others are fine.

Protect your front-line employees. They still care, want to do good work, and are exceptionally talented.
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.
