"From my experience while working at Squarespace I see women in leadership roles equally as much as men are. The people they hire are very diverse and come from many different backgrounds, cultures, nationalities......both men and women of any gender. "
"Women are empowered and promoted regularly. In fact, I believe I have seen more females promoted in my time here than men. It is truly an organization that is supportive of women and I am very happy I joined for that reason and many more. "
"Squarespace has given me the opportunity to work alongside and learn from incredibly talented and intelligent women. "
"Squarespace is a very inclusive environment that has a strong foundation set for supporting women in the company, and is actively building towards refining that support."
"I believe that all employees are treated equitably and have the opportunity to be successful."
"In my nearly five years at Squarespace, I have been given countless opportunities to develop. I'm worked for and alongside numerous talented and inspiring women leaders. I just returned from my 20 week parental leave and felt completely supported before, during and after."
"Squarespace is focused on providing each employee with the opportunity to succeed no matter your gender or ethnicity. There are female role models at Squarespace to look up to and encourage your growth. "
"Its an excellent place for women and mothers. The leadership team is 50% women and there is a lot of flexibility for working mothers. "
"This is a place you can shine and be supported. "
"Squarespace in my experience has been a place where your voice is heard."
"Squarespace is an overall great place to work. I'm very happy here, and my coworkers are all smart, relatable people who make even rough days a little better. Of all the companies I've worked at, it feels like the place women are treated with the most equity, though in my view there is always room for improvement, and this would hold true of likely any workplace. "
"Inspiring mission to empower creatives, entrepreneurs and small businesses. Incredible people and culture, with many working parents. Half of the executive team are women, which is rare to find."
"I would say that I think that it's a great place to meet other career-driven women and build relationships with women."
"Maternity leave and health care benefits are great! There are mother's rooms at every office location with a breast pump, bottles of water, sink to wash bottles, cleaning supplies, etc. Our medical plan has been nicknamed the free baby plan where there's no cost to have a baby!"
"I'm surrounded by intelligent women who support other women and it's made Squarespace a wonderful place to grow my career. "
"The benefits are fantastic for families or those trying to start a family."
"With so many of our leaders being women, we have completely shattered the idea of a "bro" culture. this is a non-competitive work environment with a lot of empathy for parents and caregivers, backed up by policies that help with fertility, leaves, and other family friendly policies. There are also fantastic women role models for those of you who are looking to navigate the challenges of being a female leader."
"I believe that women are treated equally and as a parent, the benefits and flexibility/support have been really wonderful."
"As a female who joined the company as a functional leader in the last year, I can say that I have been given tremendous runway to build out my department and truly drive the strategy. I was recently promoted in under a year. In the time I have been with Squarespace, I have seen numerous other females (who have proven themselves in influence, leadership capability and functional expertise) be promoted internally which has impressed me. I have also never worked with kinder or more authentic people, including my initial hiring manager, my then skip-level manager, and my current manager (all 3 are female by the way!) "
"As a woman, I have had a great experience working at Squarespace the past 3 years. I find our culture to be extremely supportive, where employees have strong relationships with their managers & teams, but also with people outside their group. Employee's feedback is not only listened to but valued and acted on by leadership. Our policies are often very flexible in order to support our diverse population of employees and their needs, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic."
"It's a supportive culture, and a flexible environment where I haven't had to choose between my family and work life. - especially as a mother of young children. I've always felt the ability to build on my skills and learn new things. "
"This is the first company in a long time where I'm not expected to be on-call 24/7 and I can genuinely have down time and not have to look at email. There is a genuine respect for work-life balance and family (however broadly you define family, not how some employers choose to define). I've found the team I'm in to be very supportive of one another and this year there has been an extra special sensitivity to the challenges that working from home have brought, especially those caring for others. The other thing I really love is the opportunity for change. People are open to new ways of doing things here and that's been a huge boost for me as other companies I've worked have been very set in their ways. "

"Squarespace do an incredible job of supporting their employees to balance the demands of work and home life. The policies are in place to make sure that we can take any time that we need, but more importantly, our senior leadership team actively encourage us to prioritize our own wellbeing."

"Supportive, high-growth company with a ton of potential. We have a women's employee resource group and the community continues to grow. I am excited for the future of Squarespace."

"Company is placing more of a focus on diversity and inclusion initiatives. ERGs (employee resource groups), including [email protected], is one way the company is supporting underrepresented groups. We have a strong representation of women leadership at the top, which is encouraging and ensures there is a balance of perspective. I'm not a working mother (yet) so I can't speak to that aspect, but there are a lot of working mothers around me who WFH when need be and that's totally acceptable."
"There are many women in leadership roles but the majority are new or very inexperienced/ineffective managers (this is true of men as well), which leads to a lot of dissatisfaction from employees that stems directly from poor leadership. That being said, the actual perks and benefits are extremely generous and many of my friends who are working moms have been able to successfully return to their role post-baby."
"The benefits are really amazing. They cover me, my partner and our child 100%. We paid nothing when I had my baby and then I received 18 weeks paid before being slowly integrated back in with ongoing support."

"There are certain teams with more women represented than others, but hiring and retaining women is definitely a priority here and it's a great place to work."

"This employer encourages women with recurring women in the workplace seminars and panels and women's month events. They tangibly support women with tampons and pads in the bathrooms and a peaceful nursing room. "

"I'm one month into working here, coming from another mid-sized company. The culture is more grown up, more serious. Respect is give off the bat, and people assume that you are here because you know what you're doing - you don't have to prove to be worthy or an expert (the hiring process proves that). Squarespace is investing heavily in People and Culture as the company is growing at a fast rate. Lots of opportunity to come in and shape what this amazing company will be. Four of the biggest things I look at when joining a company: Diversity at the top. Great product. Strong brand. Financially stable (more than stable in this case). This company has it all. "
