Community Lead (Current Employee) – Texas – May 29, 2018
- words of management do not match actions of management - team is not united locally - 9+ hour workdays with little to no breaks - decent pay/sales bonus structure - opportunity to travel - lots of company growth expected
Community Service Associate, CSA (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 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, NY – March 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.
Community Management Lead (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 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.
Free food, alchol
Long hours, mandatory after hours events. Poor management. No growth.
Finance & Accounting Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 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.
Community Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 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
Fun perks, good friends
Poor Management, daily changes to job duties, long hours
Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 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.
Community Services Associate (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – March 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.
Cleaner (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – February 27, 2018

CSA (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – February 10, 2018
WeWork is very promising and up and coming business. They offer full time benefits, PTO and a variety of many other things thru out the company. Work Monday and Friday and off on weekends,paid holidays.
Facilities Lead (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 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.
Interacting with entrepreneurs
Management, Nepotism, Immature, Work Life Balance, training
Technical Support (Current Employee) – New York – January 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.
Wonderful Environment to work in. Many bright individuals you‘ll come across. Opportunity to network with other like-minded individuals.
Community Service Associate (Former Employee) – 120 Park Ave – December 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
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 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.
Everything. Read additional negatives reviews because theyre true.
