Manager needs improvement, good culture overall

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The manager I worked with was terrible, and needs further training to do her job better. The amount of responsibility versus the payoff for this role was not worth it by any means.

Pros

Free food and coffee

Cons

no breaks besides unpaid lunches, poor management

Poor work life balance/high chaos

Startup mentality, over allocated staff, long days, little appreciation for efforts, inconsistent messaging from top down, low maturity as an organization, burnout, history of high attrition, likely due to leadership issues and over allocation of resources without extra compensation. Elitist attitude toward coworkers and lack of support and recognition from coworkers and leadership. Extreme focus on diversity, at the expense of the homogeneous. Lack of time to attend training. Loss of on site benefits of lunches and nice workspace due to Covid, etc. etc. etc........Extra workload due to Covid, not enough money to cover expense of working from home, mixed messaging on future remote work policy

Great place to work

Like any Tech company in San Francisco, there are a lot of perks but Slack has a laid back work environment that allows you to do you job and be creative.I can't wait until Covid allows us to all go back to work!

Wonderful work environment and mentorship

Slack was one of the best research and work experiences I have ever had. The research team was stellar and provided the mentorship I desperately wanted. They provided constructive feedback on my work and guidance on being successful in the industry. The company culture was supportive and great. They wanted you to be happy and go home at the end of the day. I felt like a part of the team since day 1. The perks and people were great. 10/10 an amazing company to be a part of.

No real training

They pretty much sink or swim you .if you can't adjust to their system without training you are let go. They also let the FTE employees roam free without and responsibility. So it's on you to learn and train yourself and if you mess up prepare for a write up.

Pros

good people and users

Cons

poor management, micromanagement and only contract positions available no full time

Terrible company with horrible people

If you actually care about yourself, do not work for slack. It is a horrible company with bad management written all over it. I would not be surprised if it went bankrupt within 7 years.

Overworked and underpaid

Procurement staff is hostile and threatens the team if you submit an rfp on every occasion. Toxic work environment and management steals your work and credits it as their own.
