    Pluspunten

    Smart coworkers, easy to get a long with. Pay is ok especially for very good work life balance. Total compensation depends on when you joined and how your options are worth, but base salary is good and so are benefits. New NYC office is very confenient and nice. Work can be interesting depends on your team.

    Minpunten

    Near constant reorganizations. Very inexperienced management, from middle management to the top. HR is nightmare, but good news is most of the people can just avoid them. No RSUs. Pay not competitive for very senior people so hard to hire them. Some people have not things to do, because there was too aggressive hiring and now too many people work on small problems.

    Advies aan management

    Hire experienced managers. Give better comp to senior people and RSUs. Consider performance based bonus.

    Pluspunten

    - Free food
    - Trips to Stockholm
    - lots of activities

    Minpunten

    I am getting tired of the constant reorgs. My team had a great vibe and then was suddenly uprooted and hasn’t recovered. Morale is low across the company because of this.

    I’ve felt stuck in my role without advancement. Unhappy with manager who doesn’t seem to be able to help or provide any guidance on moving forward.

    Advies aan management

    For the love of God, stop the reorgs. It hurts employee morale and disbands effective teams that are actually doing great work.

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij Spotify (Langer dan een jaar)

    Pluspunten

    - great work/life balance
    - a "cool" product
    - great benefits (parental leave, free healthcare, 4 weeks of paid vacay and plenty holidays)
    - trusted to take on highly visible projects

    Minpunten

    - absolutely no structure and priorities changes on a daily basis
    - a lot of talent leaves quickly because the company is not well-run
    - a lot of leadership is held over from the start-up time period and do not have much experience in big tech
    - low salary for a top tech company
    - because of the low salary hiring managers/directors is difficult--i only had a direct manager for 6 months and a director for 6ish (only 2 months of overlap).
    - no clear professional growth strategy, and managers are in charge of promo causing for much bias
    - career conversations are not really taken seriously
    - asked to do top level work with below average start up-level resources
    - lack of centralization leads to a lot of duplication and difficulty with keeping track of data, tech ownership, etc
    - little data used in making important company decisions

    Advies aan management

    Invest in structure and processes. Spotify high autonomy is only possible with high alignment, and the company seems to have neither at this point (VPs creating pet projects/product with no data justification and no alignment on company strategy)

    Pluspunten

    They pay reasonable salaries for being Stockholm although definitely not above average. The environment is good and people are friendly. If you have worked for Spotify you will be attractive on the market.

    Minpunten

    The stock options program could be better, it is a joke. It feels like the competence in the company is steadily declining, and the bar is being lowered all the time for new employees. The secrecy around salary bands is frustrating, and it is hard to know whether it is worth the effort to advance in the steps program given that you have no idea how it will affect your salary.

    - Very smart and friendly coworkers
    - Safe work environment (in engineering at least)
    - A lot of trust is given to the employees to do their jobs correctly and to do what's right for the company
    - The most inclusive workplace I've ever seen

    Minpunten

    - Some growing organisational pains. The "Spotify model" is good but is reaching it's limits, in my opinion.
    - HR is very slow in this company
    - Compensation is at market level but no as high as other tech companies

    Pluspunten

    Cool office, great perks, new employees get a trip to Stockholm, 6 month maternity leave, cool events and parties. Fridge is always stacked with beer and wine. Free lunch, snacks, soda, breakfast everyday. You occasionally get a free shirt or some sort of swag here or there. We also get the occasional performance and celebrity sighting. Video games galore. Ping pong is popular in the office.
    Aside from that, the people I work with are wonderful. Not only are they great work wise , but they know how to have fun too. Can’t complain about management either. My managers are always looking out for us and want to see us grow and progress in our careers. Things are always changing at Spotify, which is great because you are never bored. There’s always something changing or something new happening that might impact your work. I see this as a good thing since it keeps you on your toes and provides you with more exposure in a sense.
    Overall, pretty cool and awesome place to work for.

    Minpunten

    Finance tends to work some long hours, especially during month end close. This might interfere with any fun Spotify happy hours or events, but not the biggest deal since there’s always events. Also, working late is pretty standard with most finance positions.
