Worst Place I Worked At
Facilities Lead (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJanuary 29, 2018
Title: Facilities Lead
Location: Seattle, WA

1. Work Life/Balance : It was awful to work certain days from 6am -2pm and then attend phone call meetings or make adjustments to my schedule and accommodate members. You are also required to install a phone app and received messages even when you’re not at work.

Sorry but if I’m not working, do not message me.

2. Compensation/ Benefits : You receive PTO and Sick days. You will need it to gain back your mental health.!

3. Management: Work smarter is irrelevant to Lazy. The guy spends his time watching baseball on his computer. Enforced the importance of meetings but I think it was more to waste time instead of make progress. Passive aggressive at times. Disrespectful during on boarding process. Nepotism. A whole lot of gossip. Lack of inspiration. Get to know a persons goals before you’re so quick to make assumptions about them. A simple Thank You would be great.

Management needs to be able to gauge the stress level of their team. Your Community Associates and Leads are on the front line. Step your game up ! Empower them ! Get off from behind your computer and do more to equip them for success instead of handing off your baggage. It’s work, not the airport.

4. Job Security/Advancement : I think It’s lenient but the turn over rate is so high, there’s always new employees who come in with the need to prove themselves so they end up stepping all over another.

5. Job Culture: Know when to be serious like the rest who are serious about what they do.
Pros
Interacting with entrepreneurs
Cons
Management, Nepotism, Immature, Work Life Balance, training

Soulless environment

Pros
Free coffee and beer
Cons
Clueless, unscrupulous management, callous executives

Community Service Associate (Former Employee) –  120 Park AveDecember 19, 2017
Members are the best part of WeWork. So many different people with ambition and hustle. Good Culture and environment to work in. Days can get bad if no coverage available as more work can accumulate over time. Management should help associates alot more with Front Desk & Kitchen Areas. EVERYONE should be FULLY trained in all job duties. Other then that pretty Dope culture to be apart of
Pros
Free Food, Good Music & Awesome Members
Cons
Poor Management & Short Staff In Some Locations

Immature culture unprofessional management
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAOctober 22, 2017
Work life balance - Your work is apart of your life. Go home and spend your Saturday/ Sunday expecting work related notifications. If you don't participate, well you're not a good fit.

Benefits- Medical and dental is provided like every other company. No match 401k. You can invest in company stocks but don't expect a profit until 5 years later.

Job security- Like the previous responses. Nepotism and cut throat. High school cliques . Immature people in over their heads. Your co-workers won't hesitate to step all over you just to make themselves look good to management. Even if you are a high performer. They'll gladly smile in your face and the next thing stab you in the back to get you fired.

Management- They're no different. You would expect management to hold a high standard and not participate in gossip but wrong.Instead of remaining mutual, they show favoritism. Instead if communicating with the individuals involve, they pick sides. Poor leadership in result of hostile environment. Say one thing and do the other.

Job Culture - Nepotism. Immature high school cliques. Lack of racial diversity. Superficial ego stroking.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Everything. Read additional negatives reviews because theyre true.

Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 14, 2017
Management was confused about goals and mission of the company. Is it real estate or technology? Management was young, cool and totally in over their head. No clear vision on whats next.
Pros
Nice office

Construction Lead/Development Project Manager (Former Employee) –  NYC, NYSeptember 3, 2017
This is great for someone who is 22 years old and is excited by the thought of beer on tap 24/7 as well as frequent social gatherings. But, for people with lives outside of work...good luck. Personal lives are not respected. The people that work here are AMAZING and talented, but aren't appreciated nearly as much as they should be.

Community Service Associate (Former Employee) –  studio square but also many other buildingsAugust 28, 2017
A day at work would be simple and straight forward with tasks that pop up here and then nothing serious or crazy to impede on your work schedule. Ive learned how to change beer kegs and learned of a variety of different business from customers. Many people are laid back and nice to you they get their work done and the urban lifestyle is reflected around the buildings. The hardest part of the job is doing favors for customers outside your job description because its hard to say no. The most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that you are not micro-managed.

The Worst Company I Ever Worked For.
Real Estate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 10, 2017
WeWork promises you the world but under delivers on its promises. The company is made up of first-time job seekers getting taken advantage with free coffee, no work life balance, and below average pay. The CEO has done a good job of faking it until he makes it, but the entire leadership staff is made up of a bunch of ego driven narcissists. I was taken advantage of every day for nearly 1 year. Eventually I had to leave because I was constantly getting insulted at work by my manager.

Immature large company claiming to be a startup when convenient.
Manager (Former Employee) –  USAJuly 27, 2017
Be prepared for an unprofessional experience from start to finish. While there are some individual exceptions (good people who will likely leave), every single department is mismanaged. High turnover, poor communication, constantly shifting priorities, sketchy managers and a general immaturity pervade each function. You will be exhilarated at times, but mostly frustrated, until you leave. Fake it until you make it (management a boatload in an IPO) should be their motto.
Pros
Free beer when it hasn't run out - you'll need it.
Cons
Very unprofessional hiring and management, office politics, nepotism, uncertainty about everything, long hours, low pay, high turnover

Sales (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 14, 2017
I think if you are looking for a sales position here do not join for the money but join for the culture. Very culture driven organization and young employees. Upper management is changing for the better.

a typical day at work is fun but a lot of cleaning if you are a customer service associate. most people are friendly although you have your typical stock up girls. overall be ready to deep clean.
Pros

some female members are so dirty in the restroom
