"Like most companies, there is always work to do to improve, but Pinterest isn't as bad as some of the others, and women are more respected at the table. The company has flexible work and benefits that support new parents, mental health benefits, PTO, and more. The pay is equal and transparent, and the people are friendly. If you get a kind and smart woman manager, it's even better."

"There is good work to be done, but this is not the long term role where you can expect to be rewarded for your efforts. The managers are struggling with their own identity issues and suffer as a result of sexist culture - and that travels downwards into how they treat their staff. It’s very much the “we are a family” verbiage we all know to be a red flag, as it comes with lack of boundaries and lack of respect. "

"Mat leave is 4 months with one month before mat leave starts and one transitional month upon return. Unfortunately, it depends on your manager to allow you to take the full time off before or after your transitional month."

" Its a great place to work. Supports inclusion and diversity."
"Despite its flaws, Pinterest is far better than any other place I've worked in how it treats women."
"Pinterest is doing a ton for moms and women. The recent hring of a female head of Diversity and Inclusion is a good step. The maternity and paternity benefits keep improving, and we are one of the best employers about hiring pregnant women. For such a small company, it's really impressive to see the number of pregnancies happening right now! There's a growing concern about lack of women at the executive level, but we have a few roles "to be hired" at the moment. If those can be filled by women it would be a huge step forward."
"I work in a more female-dominated org (can't really talk about the eng side) and have been treated very well. Everyone I've worked with has been down-to-earth and eager to learn and teach. However, because people are so nice, you can at times miss out on learning opportunities (as in people don't want to point out to you areas of improvement or they tend to beat around the bush). Management is definitely male-dominated, especially the higher up you go. However, it's an ongoing discussion, which is nice, and women meet regularly to discuss how to improve things."
