    Pros

    Employee culture is phenomenal. Every employee is positive, helpful, open, and kind. As an employee, you know the company thinks highly of you. There is an on-campus daycare, gym, and cafe. The cafe has healthy options, the gym has good equipment, a personal trainer, and classes. The staff is diverse, with many different age groups and cultures represented. The company has a value system of keeping employee morale high, so that the employees will keep client morale high. Employees stay a long time. All usual benefits are offered, along with free coffee. The office has many paid outings and lunch opportunities. Employees are encouraged to move upwards in the company, switch departments, and to find their exact niche within the company. You can move departments 6 months after employment

    Cons

    The health plan is high deductible, but has an HSA and low premiums. No benefits until 30 days of employment and is not retroactive. No 401k matching until 6 months of employment, but you are immediately vested. Moving from a small company to a large company is difficult, and many changes are typical--you will need to be a quick learner and adaptable. The company offers a lot of support to help you through these changes, though. They don't hire outsiders for most management positions, unless you are in sales.

    Advice to Management

    Offer employer paid short-term disability and an option for a low deductible health plan. Open up management positions to more outsiders.

    Pros

    Dress code is extremely casual. There is no other job on the planet where you can roll in wearing gym shorts and a hat and make 80-110k. It depends what Sr Account Manager you have but mine is awesome, doesn't micro-manage. They pretty much make it so that you determine whether you are going to keep your job. If you are good at sales, you will make great money with a flexible schedule and awesome benefits

    Cons

    Just like any sales job, there are ups and downs. This is a sales job...if you think of Account Management as Account Management, you probably won't succeed but if you understand that this is a high pressure sales job then you will do well

    Pros

    Great employee culture. Good hours and benefits. Managers are willing to help in any way they can. Overall, a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Pay depends on how good your month is and that can fluctuate. Change happens quite of often so if that bothers you it may not be the best company.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. The pay, benefits, and atmosphere are all great. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Cons

    Due to the relaxed atmosphere, some managers sometimes find it difficult to manage appropriately. I also had a few managers that had issues with micro-managing.

    Advice to Management

    If I had to give any advice to the different managers at Angie'a List, I would say to make sure that they act like a manager, and not a friend.

    Pros

    The culture of Angie's List is one of teamwork and growth! The people were awesome, the work was hard and you got out of it what you put into it!

    Cons

    Sales requires patience but if you keep changing up your game, you can succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep having fun!

    Pros

    Great culture and teamwork within department, management was top notch. Huge amounts of growth for the company in short amount of time.

    Pros

    pay can be extremely appealing. When you gain trust from your manager and prove yourself you can set your own hours

    Cons

    high stress and luck plays a part which leaves a lot of your success up to chance. Office politics plays a big part in your ability to move up

    Advice to Management

    too much micromanagement. Need to stick to a plan and see it through to the end. Too many aspects are ever-changing

    Pros

    Fun culture, opportunity for advancement with hard and good work, rewarded for good performance, great people, fun buildings and campus.

    Cons

    Once the company went public, internal bureaucracies started, which is expected. I did not enjoy the changes that being a public company brought.

    Advice to Management

    Try and remain as much "small company" as possible given the public status. Continue to reward employees through promotions based upon merit and not length of time served.
