"Great community, amazing common spaces, cramped offices"

What do you like best?

The common areas are amazing overall, some locations better than others. They always have a lot of events going on with free breakfast of some kind on Monday mornings. We host a monthly marketing meetup there and they help promote it. They also provide a lot of great benefits (discounts, etc) which can help with recruiting. They have a pantry called the Honesty Market with snacks for sale at reasonable (for NYC) prices. The community staff are very helpful. The conference rooms are good but inconsistent, some missing phones, TVs or whiteboards.

What do you dislike?

The offices are very very small. The price you pay is really for the common space and the community. If you think it terms of square footage, it's outrageous. Many people don't know how to behave in small offices and can make a lot of noise. Supposedly we are not allowed to block the windows but that rule is never enforced so it can feel like you are working in a tunnel sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Worth it for the community and common areas, as well as attracting younger employees, but not for the minimal space you get.

"Collaborative Space and Fun Environment To Be In"

What do you like best?

The space is open, friendly, and there's always a great vibe in the environment; I never had any problems with this space at all and I only moved due to a move in my geographic location. I would only say that the offices could benefit from being even bigger with more room to move; that's it!!!

What do you dislike?

To be honest, there was nothing that I really disliked about the company or the space - my ONLY suggestion would be to get MORE offices in locations in the areas that are not metropolitan. For example, there is a New York City and Boston location but there are no locations in the areas that are close to there but not metropolitan (i.e. the Jersey Shore area). This market would also greatly appreciate a product like this, trust me!!

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a space that can be shared and do not mind the environment where it is more talkative, then COME HERE. You will not regret it!!!

What Coworking Spaces solution do you use?

"short term it's ok, but not quite for those who need privacy and focus"

What do you like best?

Coffee, beer and kabumcha, use of meeting rooms, great app and website to make bookings easy and fast, high speed internet

What do you dislike?

price, and locations were ok, however the layouts were often cramped and it made it hard to focus as the clear glass walls were not good for sound or privacy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

be sure to spend some time in them before really making the commitment for a desk if it isn't your style or it's too hard to focus, but month-to-month plans there really isn't anything bad about trying it out.

"Pricey, but great for networking/community"

What do you like best?

WeWork is the most mature of the various coworking networks, and as such has been able to focus recently on community and networking. This is definitely helpful for building connections in the tech industry (and make no mistake, it's *all* tech industry)

What do you dislike?

WeWork is expensive. Coworking spaces in general aren't cheap, but most have more accessible plans than WeWork

"Cool concept, will be interested to see how it adapts and grows"

What do you like best?

Having a physical address, having a space to store stuff, having a central point of meeting, or home base for staff members and partners.

What do you dislike?

Lots of gimmick with some real problems… Sometimes slow, unreliable internet; often the open, shared environment can be too loud; don't love that people who bring dogs don't keep eye on them; phone booths are often full; reserving conference space isn't easy on sight, has lots of glitches.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would recommend if you work from home!
