"Great community, amazing common spaces, cramped offices"

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Monthly office rental for small business

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 provider:

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"

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Having my own space to work in so I can get more done and have a home away from home; provides desks, chairs, space, and an environment for other people to work 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 provider:

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!!!

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

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Having an affordable temporary office in a different part of the country was very helpful. The month-to-month relationship was great and amenities were nice. There are a variety of options which were also good to help as I returned to main, home-office and could maintain some benefits of membership

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 provider:

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"

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Besides the obvious use for startups that don't have their own spaces, coworking spaces like WeWork are ideal for remote work. Sometimes it really just requires actually getting out of the house to be productive

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

"WeWork is awesome"

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Their conference rooms are wonderful. The spaces include A/V gear and delightful details like custom wallpaper and marble tables.

What do you like best?

They have excellent front-desk service. They cover the cost of utilities. They provide refreshments.

What do you dislike?

They have no Canada locations, but hopefully they will expand. They are available in many locations throughout the USA.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

I recommend expanding to Canada.

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

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Provides us with a working space that makes sense for our small, mostly remote staff. Gives us a physical location and address, which makes things so much easier for tax and insurance purposes, and gives us the space to store physical things, like documents, etc.

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 provider:

Would recommend if you work from home!

"Great for Small Teams without Projected Growth "

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

WeWork was a good solution when it was 3 people on our team. As we grow, it's been hard to find the right amenities for a team of 10+ people.

What do you like best?

Staff is very friendly and courteous. Young/hip vibe

What do you dislike?

It's not private at all (difficult working with NDAs). The ops staff does not clean very often. Hard to book conference rooms.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Great for teams of 5 or fewer

"I've been to nearly all the WeWork's in DC...and it totally depends on your location"

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

WeWork staff is all super nice...so that's cool. Even after an old colleague was not very nice to them, they remained very composed. It all depends on what location your at if things will work like you want, though. The older locations tend to have more issues. Each location has a different "vibe" some are very low key while others are more suit-and-tie. The best view of DC, I've seen other than atop the Washington Monument is from the WeWork White House.

What do you like best?

That nitro coffee, baby! Also the nap rooms and being able to move around the city!

What do you dislike?

There's a different feel for each one...and things like air conditioning were INSANE at some locations. Omg so cold.

"Modern fun well-situated co-working"

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

When starting my recent startup, WeWork was the perfect 'office space' - great location and facilities, and allowed the flexibility to move between co-working space to a dedicated desk to our own office and back again depending on the staff or partners I had as we built and pivoted. Nice team, great resources.

What do you like best?

The flexibility of being able to scale your space up and down and the on-hand facilities (conference rooms, coffee etc)

What do you dislike?

There really wasn't anything I disliked except for some billing errors which were resolved.
