We(can)Work it out

Jul. 16, 2020

Once regarded as one of the most highly valued unicorn companies, the last year has been a rough ride for co-working giant WeWork.


LinkUp dove into WeWork’s jobs data last fall, when every day seemed to bring the company more bad news. After publicly filing their IPO paperwork in August, WeWork immediately began to experience challenges in the face of investor and media scrutiny. Concerns were raised not only about WeWork’s shaky path to profitability, but also about questionable behavior by its leader, CEO and cofounder Adam Neumann.

At the time, WeWork’s job listings rose and fell in lockstep with its valuation and capital – with a much publicized 78% drop in valuation in 2019, its job listings dropped 22% as well. Things went from bad to much, much worse, ending in the removal of Adam Neumann as CEO, and an indefinite delay of its initial public offering.
