TikTok recruiter reached out for a Product Specialist role. Thinking of not going with it after reading about the WLB and culture. Anyone works at TikTok or has heard about what it’s like there? I love the WLB at spotify, only complaint is the pay.

I've heard that pay and benefits are great there depending on your role but WLB is extremely poor. There are a lot of international meetings since it's a Chinese company so that's a contributing factor to those long hours. You'll have to be okay with some late nights in exchange for better pay. It might be worth seeing if there's a way for you to grow at Spotify if you want to keep that WLB.

TikTok has the 9/9/6 Chinese working hours, which are brutal and based around your manager’s time zone

From everything I've heard, TikTok is not ideal for those who value WLB. Pay is good, but you have to think about what matters most to you.

Do you really want to work for a Chinese company controlled by the CCP?

Haha well then I’ve got nothing. It’s a purely moral argument not a financial one.

Honestly, I wouldn't risk it. If pay is a concern, grind at Spotify and wait for a better opportunity elsewhere. It's a lot of trouble from what I've heard at TikTok and not worth the increase if you ask me. B

I'd stick with Spotify if you are at all concerned with WLB or company culture.

I agree with EA1 - I looked into TikTok for awhile, but after reading about the crazy bad hours and schedules, I backed out. Cool tech, but not a cool work culture at all
