      Wonderful place to work

      Pros

      - The company and CEOs genuinely care about its people: in everything from the gay marriage plebiscite, to bushfires, to COVID, the company has always made its people feel supported and cared for. - A lot of smart people putting in their best efforts for their product and teams. Your teammates are all trying to do the best work they can. - Good pay. Not the best, but certainly not the worst either. Base salary + equity + bonus makes for a fairly decent compensation package. - Work/life balance strongly encouraged. - Huge variety of products and teams, each with different kinds of problems to tackle. There's always stuff to think about.

      Cons

      - Fairly difficult process for recognition and promotions. - Confusing org chart and hierarchies. These things are often changing too, which can be hard to follow. - A lot of information gets thrown at you, all the time. Information about your team, info about your org, info about adjacent teams, adjacent projects, info about the strategic direction for our products, etc... It's all very overwhelming, constantly. - The company has taken a huge pivot towards remote work. Definitely a pro for some, but there have been teething problems in terms of company culture and practices.

      Pros

      Great perks, culture and mission

      Cons

      There are a few senior leaders that are fuelled by toxic narcissistic obsession and create a difficult environment for their teams. Most teams are not like this though, and most managers/leaders are very supportive

      - Great salary package - Huge learning opportunities - They care considerably for their employees

      Cons

      - You can feel lost for a while. It takes a long time to learn your role and impact at Atlassian. - The products we work on can be fairly vanilla. Very creative designers may not be interested

      Progressive company with great benefits

      Pros

      Everyone you work with is super smart. It does feel like the company cares about their people and even the global community, i.e. the company is run on 100% renewable energy, we get paid time off for volunteer work, charity donation matching up to (I think) $2500 per year. Something else that I'm impressed by is the progressive, open culture where people feel open to speak about issues other than the typical mind-numbing water cooler talk at a company-wide level (issues like loss, suicide, infertility, taking a break for mental illness, etc.). Paid therapy sessions. A budget of $500 per year for wellness. Time off gets automatically approved.

      Cons

      The worst thing about working at Atlassian is the cringey silicon valley humour that sometimes socks you in the mouth when there's a US-based meeting. Not quite "corporate" cringe, very much in a league of its own.
