    Je travaille chez Square à plein temps

    Avantages

    As our company has been acquired a few months back, I discovered the life at Square... and that's not pretty. I've rarely felt so unconsidered and dehumanized. If you are looking for good money, work there, but run away if you want a fulfilling and rewarding experience.

    Advantages:
    - Good money
    - Perks

    Inconvénients

    - Culture
    - Executives behavior
    - Everything else

    Je travaille chez Square à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    - Gourmet breakfast lunch and dinners, a smoothie bar that has some of the best smoothies I’ve ever had, and even a ginger shot (with grapes for chaser) to get your aura right in the mornings.. 4 on-site lunch areas, breakrooms stocked with the most amazing snacks and drinks ..

    - Great paternity / maternity leave program. 4 paid months off!

    - Super transparent company culture. Every other Friday we have a company wide meeting (with different fine wine and appetizer pairings), where different groups discuss what they’re working on, where Jack Dorsey himself engages with his Squares, and listens to us voice our grievances, whether professional or personal opinions, (and he does so with great compassion and concern for all).

    - Awesome CEO that genuinely cares about every single person that works for him. He’s created a very welcoming and inclusive culture.

    -Great company events aimed at creating a great, connected culture within the company ! Outrageous company picnic called square games with open bar and hilarious inflatable games and activities and not to mention all the good food! Great events for our merchants.. awesome holiday party.. and even just the random celebrations. Like Squares birthday.. and others.

    - Pay is WAYYYYYY above market. Especially if you consider the fact that my stocks rocketed 250% in the past 7 months .

    -The smartest and most personable colleagues. I seriously have made some of my best friends through this company. No beaurocracy. Everyone is humble and kind and respectful and happy.

    -Flexibility in work schedule as long as you’re getting stuff done. I am able to work around commute hours and even WFH 1 or 2 days a week.. although I really miss being in the office the days I’m not it ..

    -Lots of opportunity to make a name for yourself within this company, and given all we’re working on internally in terms of our own ecosystem of offerings, you are going to be sitting on a pretty penny in 5 years if you work hard here.

    - CEO is a saint. God bless him for all he does and continues to do for his employees and for the rest of the world. He believes very strongly in being humble and letting the results speak for themselves. It may be why we don’t spend so much money on trying to be ranked the best place to work.

    - Management is amazing. Very supportive of personal and professional development.

    Inconvénients

    I feel like this true of any company I’ve worked at that spoils their employees, but some people begin to feel entitled and whine about the most nonsensical stuff. Like some of these reviews for example. None of you are oppressed. None of you work at a place that you can’t stand. You’d be somewhere else otherwise. And if you think it’s any better anywhere else, by all means, it’s at will employment.. but I will let our boomerang rate (people that leave and then come back) speak for itself.. and as someone who has worked at other these so called “best places to work”, trust me. We have it so, so good.

    Conseils à la direction

    Please don’t ever change.

    J'ai travaillé chez Square en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    Overall, I enjoyed my time at Square. As a software engineering you are exposed to all kinds of interesting problems in the financial space. Engineering talent was a positive surprise.

    Inconvénients

    Company grew from 2000 to almost 4000 relatively quickly. Career advancement can depend on department and manager, although it's a very typical problem at most places I have been working at. Being on-call is expected. The on-call experience is also very team dependent.

    Avantages

    They serve good food including all meals and fresh juices

    Inconvénients

    - most groups have lot of work pressure
    - high turnover rate if manager is not good then no body listens to you...
    - overall good for singles not good for family persons

    Conseils à la direction

    They need to have 360 degree review in order to catch bad managers

    J'ai travaillé chez Square en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    - Super flexible time off and work from home days, as well as maternity/ paternity leave. If you have young kids, this company is great for you.
    - They try to be inclusive of all cultures during holidays.
    - They're very aware of gender pronouns and try to stand against conventional gender roles.
    - Managers and executives are very accessible. They work alongside people and stay humble, which sets a nice tone for the company.
    - Good core values (nominally)

    Inconvénients

    - Monetary compensation waaay under market value.
    - Because the company isn't exactly start-up size anymore, it's REALLY hard to move around internally. Not great for people just starting out in their careers who need the flexibility and need to gain a variety of experiences.
    - Upward mobility is also a battle depending on your team. They prefer to hire externally.
    - Management is new and inexperienced.
    - Not great at really understanding where underrepresented people are coming from. There's a lot of explaining you'll have to do to coworkers and managers, since most managers are not part of underrepresented groups. This was probably the most frustrating part.
    - The company talks a good game about transparency, but I didn't ever feel like I got honest answers when I asked questions.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Hire other managers of intersectional underrepresented groups. You'll solve a lot of those other problems with a broadened perspective.
    - Have a better (not more rigid, just better) path for upward mobility, particularly for people just starting out.
    - Maybe start by asking the aforementioned groups how you can better assist them, rather than coming up with a plan without their input (which is, in my experience, how it always happened).

    Avantages

    Pretty office with fancy appliances. There are some good projects. The pay is decent at least.

    Inconvénients

    Managers are really aggressive and overbearing. I work like a dog and don't get any recognition. At every one on one meeting my manager never fails to remind me of my shortcomings.

    Conseils à la direction

    Get better managers that know how to coach their people.

    J'ai travaillé chez Square en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    I've really gained some life skills working there. I was trusted the moment I stepped a foot in the door and was respected when asking questions and encouraged to change procedures and processes that slowed progression and did not benefit the customers. I was put in charge of new development projects with any guidance I needed and was told about what other teams were working on for the sake of transparency, clarity and being able to help them if I could and wanted. Overall would definitely go back to square if I have the chance to move back to Ireland .

    Inconvénients

    Some of the work hours were long, but only by your own choice.

    Conseils à la direction

    Follow up with interview candidates to give feedback on the interview, I know it takes time but it's such a personal touch and really helps people apply for jobs in the future.
