As someone who had a bad experience in a job but decided to stay around with hopes that something better will potentially come, I wonder how professionals in here determine if a job you got an offer from is the right culture and you can feel good about it?

Your gut.


It’s a crap shoot. The market is so tight right now for talented individuals that companies promise the world or state one thing and provide another.

You can’t wait for change. You need to be proactive if you want something new.

Just posting to this bowl - avoid Stripe. Stripe’s culture is trash for the following reasons:
- 15% Partially Meets Expectations target
- Asshole managers (mostly from Amazon)
- random PiPs and ‘disappearances’
- Sales and Marketing orgs’ exclusion from the Bonus Choice program
- our inability to hire an external CMO, likely due to culture problems
- 2x’ing headcount during the pandemic, but bungling remote onboarding - 60% unfavorable Stripesat results from new joiners

I can go on.

I know that there will be lots of room for vertical and horizontal growth though. The 2nd agency is very similar to where I am working now with great company culture but less pay
