Spotify capitalized on making my time with them very efficient.

The work request was well thought out and the managers were very competent and happy to be working for Spotify.

You will definitely be happy if you land a role with this company!

Great work environment
Research Consultant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 26, 2019
Everyone is great and super helpful. The work is autonomous and there is no micromanaging from higher ups breathing down your neck which is a relief. Definite resume booster and would definitely recommend to anyone considering applying.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Becoming official full time employee can seem like a drag

Long hours with no advancement
Finance (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 21, 2019
Pros:
-Great perks like premium Spotify, free food, and alcohol
-Great brand on your resume

Cons
-Long working hours from 7 am to midnight for 7 days a week
-No work life balance
-Management doesn't care about the wellbeing of employees
-No advancement and give false promises
-Frown upon when takes vacation or lunch break (end up losing vacation days)
-All the great party are fake because managers won't let you go so depends on what team you are in

Overall, it's great for someone who wants to work for one year and get the experience then move on to somewhere better. Too much restructuring and mid-management is inexperience. Talents are hired from other great companies but this company has poor onboarding and HR so beware!

Fun place with nice people, horrible corporate work culture
Customer Service Advisor and Team Lead (Former Employee) –  CambridgeSeptember 19, 2018
Fun place with nice people, horrible corporate work culture. Expect your manager to say things like 'You work when we tell you to work, the hours on your contract are just a guideline".

Laid back but incredibly productive and friendly
Advertising Assistant (Former Employee) –  LondonSeptember 16, 2018
The workplace culture was unlike any I have experienced before.

The workers were friendly, the atmosphere was calm (thanks to the music that plays almost constantly) and there is always food at the office.

The employees are of greatly varying ages and it made up of a highly diverse team of diligent workers.

While I was there I saw that there are numerous opportunities for advancement within the company - partially because the company is so young, but also due to the management style that makes it so that views and voices are heard my the higher ups.
Pros
Free personalised lunch every Wednesday
Cons
The AC seems to be on all the time, gets a little cold

Data Analyst Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 8, 2017
It is a typical Tech/Star-up working environment. It's fast-paced, self-driven and atonomous. It is a well-paid intern position, but the likelihood of returning is pretty low.

You'll have fun and be underpaid.
Marketing (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 5, 2017
Spotify is awesome, the culture is unmatched, however, the pay is probably some of the lowest in the market. If you can get over that, you'll enjoy the benefits of meeting some of the best in music and working with awesome people.

Very flexible, productive place to work
LEAD PRODUCT STRATEGIST / SR. PRODUCT OWNER (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 12, 2017
Spotify loosely follows the engineering videos they have published, with respect to the way their structure is laid out. Each squad has a very high level of autonomy and there is a great deal of trust in the organization. Movement between disciplines is easy, as is movement between teams. So, you can learn a great many things, if you so desire.

Real productive meet and greet session
Student brand ambassador (Former Employee) –  LeicestershireAugust 2, 2017
Starting off with dance lessons in the meet and greet sessions. Alongside ,was the free premium access to Spotify. The positive part about working in spotify was there was no specific desk job and hence was flexible and accessible from anywhere. Lots of free accessories were given like drinking cups and ping pong balls. It was really easy since everyone was aware of the campaign. Only thing was needed is to sign up people.
Pros
Free accessories
Cons
Not enough to learn
