    „Mid-senior level potential employees should be *very* wary”

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

    Pros

    - Beautiful office in a great location
    - Some amazing, lovely and kind people
    - Some really intelligent and clever people + technology

    Kontras

    - Lots of extremely young + talented employees means some great people but many are too junior/afraid to speak up
    - If you're mid-senior level of experience be extremely careful - majority of senior leadership is only concerned with looking good and keeping their departments protected
    - Senior managers will lie directly to your face and to others
    - KPIs aren't taken seriously by management but you will be held accountable to them
    - You can be thrown under the bus rather than have managers admit the direction or performance on a project is underperforming, to the point where people will lose their jobs.

    Rat an das Management

    Wake up to what your senior management are doing/saying about people. If otherwise high performing and kind people are continuously getting fired but you never get to speak to them or find out exactly why it's happening, or you're getting conflicting reports, dig into it. You're losing good, hardworking people and your reputation will suffer.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Wattpad (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    - Great place to learn. We aren't really a startup anymore so figuring out how to execute while growing is a challenge that is also a learning experience.
    - Very friendly environment!
    - The company has put a lot of emphasis in the past year on career growth and now there are well-defined "tracks" that you can grow your career.
    - Lots of experimentation to figure out what is best for the user. User Obsessed is one of our company values.
    - Transparency - leadership (from the CEO down) has been very open and transparent about revenue, growth and direction since Day 1

    Kontras

    - Sometimes we don't move as fast as we possibly could. Part of the issue is with resources and hiring - we need to scale our teams faster.

    Rat an das Management

    - Make hiring the #1 (or #1a) priority in the next 6 months. It is critical that all teams have the right staffing so that we can hit our growth and revenue goals.
