    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Etsy gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    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.

    Kontras

    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.

    Rat an das Management

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

    Pros

    Etsy was an amazing magical place with a fantastic culture. It promoted creativity, entrepreneurship, and community. The people were super talented and would all pitch in at the drop of a hat to make things happen, no one was above pitching in.

    Kontras

    Then Wall street arrived. Leadership cut 200+ jobs to make the bottom line attractive for investors. Lots of amazing talent left, people are now over worked, the place resembles a wake with the funeral soon to follow.

    Rat an das Management

    You promoted the wrong people, your exodus of talent should have shown you that.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Etsy (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Etsy is in a great period of transition. While that has been difficult for many people who have been at Etsy for a long time, personally, I'm excited and invigorated by the change in strategy and in leadership. It feels like Etsy finally knows what it's doing and where it needs to go. I think it's matured while still keeping those Etsy "weird" things that everyone loves. As other reviews have mentioned, we have great benefits, a great office, and kind people to work around.

    Kontras

    Frankly, some of the cons have more to do with the current staff that is so unhappy at Etsy. It's depressing to see people be so vocal about their distaste with the company. Etsy hasn't lost anything. One could argue that it's finally found themselves. Some of the attrition has been disappointing and...dramatic?

    Pros

    Gorgeous office
    Some of the best people you could hope to work with

    Kontras

    Amazing company culture disappeared in recent layoffs/reorg
    So many at Director level and up got there as a result of circumstance above ability to perform at that level or any relevant subject matter expertise

    Rat an das Management

    Many of the major decisions around Etsy's strategic direction made in the last 6 months were absolutely necessary to ensure a successful, (hopefully) independant future. Unfortunately, the means of implementation for so. many. changes. were completely tone deaf and devoid of any consideration for the dedicated, more than capable staff that found themselves in the rubble of the aftermath. You could not pick a worse audience to pull out corporate jargon and sports metaphors. Get in touch with your people and maybe you can slow the mass exodus and manage to save a small part of what made working at Etsy so special.

    Great colleagues, some people are really competent, but always the same get promoted.

    Where do I start from? Reorgs, many people fired, no more values.

    The company has been built by the same people you fired.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Etsy gearbeitet (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    + Nice office. Lots of money and care was spent on design. There is not a single HQ in NYC that as much common space as a % of total space as Etsy HQ. Of the 9 floors, only 5 are actually used for working full-time. We also have a floor in the building across the street which is the auditorium (Etsytorium) and some other common space. So call it 50% common space.

    + Great location for people who live in Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan. Close to the F and A/C subway lines. Bike friendly.

    + Pet-friendly.

    Kontras

    - Massive attrition of employees in last four months beyond the two big layoff rounds. We're just getting started. There are more departures in waiting as people are holding out on next vesting period (10/1) or other job options. Backfills are not keeping up and it's even harder now to attract the talent that the company desperately needs like data science, search, and other engineering needs. It won't matter what the "strategy" of the company is if it doesn't have the capabilities to execute against those goals.

    - Lack of focus still persists and senior execs are all trying to position themselves as "thought leaders" with Josh (CEO). It's like watching kids fighting for dad's attention. Minimal transparency with employees, more corporate speak, and almost no effort on retention during first 3 months, which has resulted in a yet to be realized wave of departures that will definitely accelerate later this year. Strategy without execution just leads to unachievable goals. And not squad goals.

    - Seems like investors are enthusiastic that someone will buy the company. Buyer beware and, for prospective employees, have you seen the stock price? It's been a rocket ship but don't be fooled because your stock is going to be worth half of that once investors realize that no rational company or financial buyer is going to pay this much to buy this company growing sideways towards nowhere.

    Rat an das Management

    What a pickle. How about just focus on being a best in class marketplace for handmade goods and do more on international in that niche. Cut everything else and let's stop pretending. Stop spending so much money on trying to reimagine commerce or whatever the F we can't possibly achieve now.

    Pros

    Prior to May 2nd, this would have been a 5 star review. Had far and away the best assortment of individuals I've ever met, very very smart Marketplace platform with engaged users, unparalleled internal tools built by admin, and highly scalable workflows. Again, prior to May 2nd, culture ensured that we had the best parties, catering, and workspaces.

    Kontras

    If the chosen few make it to director level, they get whatever they want (including firing whoever they want) and there's no ousting them. Management often has no idea what their direct reports are doing most of the time despite significant efforts to communicate on the part of the reporter. Way too many emails and meetings and not enough working. Very easy to talk your way into / out of anything without having any real knowledge. Support hub of the company is way underpaid, all the salary budget (outside of engineering) goes to Marketing and Project / Product / Product Marketing Managers who shrug their way through their jobs and leave all the work to their underlings.

    Rat an das Management

    Reinvest in the values (and because I know management's response will be that values are subjective, I'll clarify that by values I mean: commitment to sustainability, volunteer initiatives, community / local focus, small business) that made Etsy attractive to begin with. You will never get the talent you need to stay afloat as a GMS driven public company by pulling the plug on what has defined you thus far. Very soon, churn will reach a tipping point and there will not be enough people to run this massive platform anymore.
