Love my job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
So far, this is the best job I have ever had. I graduated from college two years ago and spent a year at a big company where I have no access to leadership and no one cared about my opinion, even though I was the one that worked with the company's biggest customers. Since starting at Workbar, I have an open line to both the CEO and CFO and my opinion is treated with respect. We have a great operations manager too. Everyone is open to teaching you if you are interested in different parts of the business.


Learning opportunities and great team


It's go go go from the minute you walk in the door, The company is growing so there is a lot happening.

Best job experience I've had since college

I learned so much at Workbar. Upper management is really approachable. The CEO had monthly calls with everyone individually that worked there. The hardest part of the job was the learning curve but they seem to be getting it together with all the resources you need to answer questions and help people. The biggest part of the job is just being friendly to everyone that works in the space. It's usually pretty easy because the members are really nice. It's just a cool place to be and work.


Summer fridays, managers are approachable, company is transparent

Inclusive and welcoming environment, great entry level position

This was my first job out of college and I spent two years as a Community Manager and loved it. There was a lot of autonomy, and I felt like I could contribute to making my job more efficient and better. You really do work for something bigger than yourself here. The company has a really good model and brings all different types of industries together.


Autonomy, inclusive, recognition

Great company to work for

Overall very good company to work for. It's a value driven company and it cares about its people. Its management team is passionate about what its doing and its place in the overall industry. You learn a good amount-from Salesforce to P&L management and how to work in a really social environment. You definitely have to come to work wanting to work because you're in front of people all day. A big bonus is that you meet a lot of startups and people working for bigger companies that like to engage throughout the day.


Social working, future forward, inclusive and great team


You're responsible for a coworking location-there's account management, sales goals, etc. It's not all events all the time.

Positive Work Environment, upper management willing to teach and help grow career

I was a Community Manager at Workbar. I learned so much-basically how to run my own small business. The best part of the job was the members in the space. Workbar does a good job at letting its Community Managers feel ownership over their location. The hardest part of the job was that you have to learn quickly and be able to adapt to changing environments. I liked that part but I know my peers felt like it was challenging. There is a lot of autonomy and I know they recently announced summer Fridays. The management has such a clear vision and it's interesting to learn so much about the industry and startups in Boston.


Summer Fridays, Team, Collaborative environment, start up feel, meeting so many people from diverse backgrounds


Really fast paced

I Wouldn't if I Were You

If you love being gaslit and doing a job you didn't sign up for then this is the job for you! The pay does not eve come close to the high level of stress/fear, long list of tasks to complete, and the horrible management you experience on a day to day basis. While you have opportunity to meet cool people from other companies (fingers crossed they want to hire you!), if those people (ahem, men) start to berate you and come on to you, management expects you to just deal with it because they don't want to risk losing a paying member. You don't need thick skin for this company, you need to be absent of a soul.


Cool networking ops, free coffee, autonomy (kind of)


Too many to list!

Toxic Work Environment

Difficult, toxic, disrespectful, arrogant, and fake superiors to work with. High paced work environment (in a bad way). Expectations constantly changing and being the last to know. Zero gratitude for work completed or ideas. Constantly being put down. Job responsibilities being added on to job description with no increase in pay. Unachievable goals. High turnover (for obvious reasons). This company is not mentally safe to work for.


Free coffee, Bevi machine, unlimited PTO


Low pay, no 401K matching

1-Star is to high

HORRIBLE management. They have no idea how to manage people and have no idea how to lead. Theirs no training but have high expectations. Its honestly a joke. The job description is so inaccurate it’s laughable. You do sales. And you also don’t get sales training. Oh and all the nice reviews they asked their current CMs to write. Note to management: if you have to tell your CMs to write nice reviews then maybe your the issue. Take some leadership classes and chill. Entry level ppl with no training dont have the will to work over 40 hrs and commit there life to a terrible company.

Need to get focused...

They do not know what they want. When they hired me they didn't have a job description and what they expected and what I thought they expected never overlapped. They never gave me clear goals and communication was extremely poor. I wish them the best in trying to figure out their direction and what they are doing, but if they do not get it together they are going to fail badly. They need to get their act together quickly.

Fun and fast-pace work environment

Workbar is a great job to give you learning experience in multiple departments. The members and colleagues are great and this company will expand your network throughout the Greater Boston area and beyond. Our work-life balance is awesome as we're off the clock after 5pm on weekdays. Our company culture is fairly flexible, we get 15 days PTO and can always reach out for help from colleagues. A typical day consists of sales outreach, member-engagement, account management, and event-planning to keep our community lively. This company will keep you on your toes and is experiencing rapid growth as we are a matured startup with many connections in the area.

Big promises without delivery

Workbar has some of the best employees, but in the recent growth it seems the employees are easily forgotten about. The best part of the job is getting to know the members that work out of the shared coworking spaces. They treat the employees wonderfully. Management is too quick to make decisions and unwilling to hear feedback from those on the ground. They also make quick hiring decisions without thinking about how it might hurt the employee culture. Best part of the job is independence. It truly allows you to make autonomous decisions and feel like a mini business owner. There is very little room for growth.


Amazing members, fun events, opportunities to network.


Management, too sales focused, community has taken a back seat to sales, high turnover
