Notion has terrific people, management with a thoughtful point of view and vision, and many fun technical challenges. In engineering, t's a good mix of veterans from established tech companies and early career engineers (few new grads, though). People are given a lot of autonomy and recognized for impactful work. A value they profess is that they want people to do the best work of their career here, and while it feels lofty, I could see it happening for me. They dogfood their own product extremely well. People seem to genuinely enjoy writing technical specs, meeting notes, etc, here. Upper management, at least from my perspective, seems efficient and functional. They communicate priorities clearly and repeatedly, making sure to link everything up with the company mission. It definitely feels like Notion could be one of the companies that comes out of current economic conditions better than before. The New York office is a great crew!!
Usual things like: someone built something in the early days, they're no longer at the company, you have to dig and ask around to find context. You will have a hard time if you expect everything to have an existing owner.
Advice to Management
Keep up the spirit of restraint. Use the resources we have to hyperfocus on what actually matters. Put even more ears on the ground. Understand how people experience Notion in the real world and how we can make it better for them.

Notion is far and away the best place I've worked! I am genuinely excited to go into work each day 🙂. + Notinos are deeply passionate, ambitious, caring and empathetic, ranging from diverse backgrounds. + Notion has delivered an amazing product with a high quality bar, loved by the community, with really cool impact every day. + There are lots of interesting challenges in the engineering space: complex product & code & design tradeoffs to tackle. + Notion has an incredible company culture, environment & people teams, and company events. + Notion has fantastic benefits, equity, pay, etc.
Notion (like many startups) is not for everyone -- expect to wear lots of hats and step up often in an extremely fast-paced environment. - There's occasional product & design thrash from lots of opinionated, passionate people -- which leads to some friction.
(1) Continue to hold a high quality bar and focus on building for the long-term. (2) Review processes actively to reduce thrash and help grow employees. (3) Give folks autonomy and time to build the best building blocks for the future and avoid breaking things and introducing tech debt.

I like the office-first culture, but this probably isn't the company for you if you prefer remote work.

Something that surprised me was how much I enjoy returning to an office! Don't get me wrong, I love working from home, but the energy in the office makes me excited to go in repeatedly. Everything about this place solidifies that Notion is a company that cares about its people and it shows:
Pros in a nutshell:
Welcoming in office experience
Notion is truly an exciting place to be. We use our product for almost everything (cool to learn how versatile it is!). You don't need to be a super user, there is a lot to learn about the product in onboarding and beyond.
I got nothin'.
But I have a word minimum - there is something really special about returning to an office (in a hybrid model) but it's not for everyone. This wouldn't be an ideal company for those who are not located near an office (or not willing to relocate to one). With that said, I didn't think I wanted to return to an office and Notion proved me wrong.
Oh, and you may develop a hot Cheetos addiction.
