productive and fun workplace
Junior Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAAugust 1, 2018
Wework is so diverse and fun. Also a worthy experience, everyone there is very nice and welcoming and always willing to help if needed. There is a little room where you can have personal phone calls and eat your lunch in there too.
Pros
New snack every Monday morning, free lunch
Cons
short break

Not what the hype is all about
Community Manager (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJuly 30, 2018
This company cannot sustain its growth in a way that allows its employees to get promoted. Just because this appears to be a start up, it is now so far from it. They are being forced to hire outside management because they do not develop their current managers effectively enough to promote from within. The overall culture has been tarnished. It is very much a "corporate" company and be prepared to keep your ideas quiet. It used to be welcome in this company, as with most start ups, but if you speak up, you might as well exile yourself. Do your self a favor, go to a WeWork, network and find one of its member's companies to work for. Also, note how much the WeWork employees are face down in there computers and don't get lunch breaks. Don't worry, a recruiter or during the interview process, they will say "some people just can't handle the startup life" and remember, WeWork is not a startup. They are worth over $20 billion.
Pros
You meet cool people!

Community Service Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 28, 2018
Love/hate relationship with WeWork but I would definitely recommend this job. In my time working there, it was a cool experience. Met some cool and interesting individuals there. They have cool events as well. That's always a plus, LOL.

Sr. Development Project Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 23, 2018
WeWork is a fast growing and has an energetic mix of young and older employees, with locations around the world that as an employee you have full access to. The hardest part is finding a good work life balance, this is talked about regularly but is is hard to achieve.
Pros
Free beer and food.
Cons
Too many meetings

Poor work-life balance
manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 9, 2018
The company has mandatory retreats and late night meetings. Good company if you are 25 years old and don't want to have a social life outside of the company.

Good place to work with a great environment and very fair structure. Very well balanced between work and leisure, and provides all the work-space essentials one would want.

Terrible
Community Service Associate, CSA (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 4, 2018
I was physically looked down by the manager, discriminated and overworked because of some reasons he never open to me. He judged me without asking me about myself and placed me different from every-other employees.

Fun to work but stressful, AP department is a mess
Accounts Payable Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 14, 2018
Accounts Payable is a mess, unorganized, unstructured, too much stress. The AP manager has no idea what she is doing. NO TRAINING AT ALL. Poor management, lack of work life balance, and cut throat tactics, especially in the AP department.

Fun workplace, terrible management
Community Management Lead (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 12, 2018
WeWork is very fast paced and can be a fun working environment, but also very disorganized. They often have very young managers and advancement is limited. High turnover. People leave or get fired very indiscriminately.
Pros
Free food, alchol
Cons
Long hours, mandatory after hours events. Poor management. No growth.

Awesome Opportunity
Finance & Accounting Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 9, 2018
For a startup company, it was an awesome experience working with WeWork. I learned the ropes of startup companies being able to see how easily things can change. How problems were being solves with new innovative ways since it was a new company new problems would come to light every day.

Fun Until it Wasn't...
Community Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 7, 2018
Depending on the luck of the draw you could wind up loving your job, OR, during one of WeWork's weekly re-orginizations, you can get stuck with a new manager who is more than likely your age, possibly younger, who thinks they are holier than thou and without any justification, other than simply not liking you, they can fire you after years of hard work and dedication
Pros
Fun perks, good friends
Cons
Poor Management, daily changes to job duties, long hours

Low Pay, But Amazing colleagues
Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 5, 2018
There is a ton of political culture and lack of advancement, especially for minorities. I would work here for 1 to 2 years and then leave for the resume boost. A ton of turn-over and management who are unwilling to learn basic best-practices. I was also being paid less than colleagues who had less experience than myself so make sure to do your homework before applying here.
Pros
Good offices
Cons

a bit intensive, but overall a fun place to work
Community Services Associate (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 1, 2018
Fun place to work at. Very bright and positive environment with a seemingly great balance between leisure time luxuries and hard work. The work load is a bit intensive, especially for the night crew, but the company makes sure they show their appreciation in both small and large ways. A place where socialization and teamwork fuel the fire to new beginnings.

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
Technical Support (Current Employee) –  New YorkJanuary 27, 2018
Hard to add to what everyone else has already said, but a pretty terrible place to work, and one which doesn't care about its employees. Cuts corners wherever it can while trying to maintain the image of be a fun-loving place to work.
Pros
Free coffee and beer
Cons
Clueless, unscrupulous management, callous executives
