    I have been working at Atlassian full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Atlassian is an extremely positive environment to work. A place with open communication and an amazing chance to exchange knowledge with different teams across the world. You can work with the product usability, reflecting on the client experience and also building scalable infrastructure in the backend.

    Cons

    Still a company with a lot of young professionals. Sometimes you lack more seniority in the teams.

    Pros

    - This is a place you love working at - This is a place that respects who you are - This is a place you want to be growing in

    Cons

    Sometimes it can feel 'too big', like any other big tech company. However, given the environment es less uptight and openminded you have at your disposal the tools to overcome this.

    I worked at Atlassian full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I had four incredible years here and just finished up this week to move home to Europe... Atlassian will give you the opportunity to do the best work of your life and it really is true. Overall, a wonderful culture and 'Workplace Experience' team who look after and spoil you rotten. No company ever gets everything right but Atlassian really has heart. The Founders are incredibly passionate about what they do and you...

    Cons

    Be weary of too much change management in succession e.g. in performance review, comp. etc. We are definitely trending the right way and for the better but ensure you're well staffed in the People Team so folks don't burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Open an Engineering office in Europe so those of us can stay with you! ;) The best of luck to all of you. Working here felt like a second home and I'll always be cheering you on.

    I have been working at Atlassian full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Lots of smart people - Extreme level of autonomy - Strong values, that are apparent when making decisions - Generous perks and remuneration - Easygoing, blame-free culture; more interest in fixing & getting it done

    Cons

    - Sometimes smart people can decide that their clever solution is the best one, resulting in lots of clever, unique solutions (lack of unification) - High autonomy can sometimes result in employees lacking short-term direction, even if the long-term goal is clear - Sometimes the "get it done" culture can suppress a good opportunity to slow down, relax, and reflect - instead of moving from one thing to the next These...

    Pros

    - Great work life balance - Food stations and free drinks - Team work - Great company culture - Flexible - Clear company direction - Awesome products

    Cons

    People get the freedom to explore so teams often do things slightly differently, which can cause confusion. But this depends on which department you are working it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Hard to fault. Great workplace and atmosphere. Values that were lived and breathed. Very genuine and transparent business.

    Cons

    A bit entrepreneurial and lacking some discipline for my working style. I felt I had to BE the culture and accept the loudest and most dominant ideas at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing it the way it is. But maybe take better care of some of your outlyers who aren't quite so dynamic but have a lot to give.

    I have been working at Atlassian full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    * Atlassian has purposefully foster an incredible culture * Atlassian has a lot of really great events * There are always bootcamps running for you to learn about anything * The quarterly company wide hackathon is awesome * The free amenities and food are amazing * The work life balance is whatever you want it to be. Some people work 9-5 some people do more and some people do less. They also have a lot of events...

    Cons

    * Some of the repo's have legacy code pains * It's hard to diet with so much free food (even though they offer A LOT of healthy options)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and don't ever stop caring about the values because for once they are actually working in a company. Stay as open as possible even as the company grows. Promotion path could be more clear, more work needs to be done on it.
