How does it feel to work for Airbnb?

5.0 ★★★★★ - FAANG without the problems of FAANG

  • YES - Recommend
  • YES - CEO Approval
  • YES - Business Outlook

Pros

Amazing diverse collaborative culture. Surrounded by very smart and highly skilled people who are constantly working hard to improve their craft. Most people check their ego at the door, everyone is helpful to one-another with the common mission in mind. Management is compassionate, caring, and clear on expectations. Employees feel supported with the right tools, resources, and are very well-compensated for the hard work. Total comp is on-par or better than FAANG in many cases.

Cons

Company is at the intersection of travel and sharing-economy, with focus on mostly traditional idea of travel lodging. While the travel industry is on the rebound from the pandemic, the long term future of the model is not without uncertainty and risk. Lots of competitions and the idea is not unique and can be replicated by competition.

Advice to Management

Airbnb was one of the first company in the mobile boom to succeed in the new share-economy revolution, along side Uber and others. For me, and many, it is a share-economy company first, and a travel company second. As Uber and others have diversified to beyond just ride-sharing, Airbnb should also diversify it's product and services beyond home-sharing purely for travel, and look into other space sharing such as office work space, personal storage, RV, automobile sharing. Airbnb has the infrastructure and know-how to be successful in the share-economy space and be less-dependent on travel to avoid another Covid-induced downturn in the future.

  • Senior management aren't all great, especially the newer hires who 'settle' for a position only to laterally move to something else - then everything downstream has to change for a new leader.
