    A Management Mess

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYounger, hard working teams that promote social atmosphere and volunteerism. Lots of events and opportunities to feel good.

    ConsLong hours and a lack of leadership on most levels. External spin of amazing place to work with awards, but behind the scenes a lot of burn out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a clear plan before you veer left then right.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A lot of potential just missing some key players.

    Manager, Sales (Former Employee)
    Richmond, VA

    ProsFun and very competitive with great pay.

    ConsNot very realistic goals that are based off of numbers that are not proven.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mixed bag...overall bad taste

    Programmer (Former Employee)

    Pros1. I think there are some genuinely great people there
    2. The benefits were pretty good from what I remember

    Cons1. I had a horribly rude manager experience during a team meeting
    2. My impression of the general morale there is that the people are not happy
    3. The culture preach is way overblown...its more of a fabricated culture than an organic true one...that's my view

    Advice to Senior Managementthis company needs some serious overhaul...I wasn't there long enough to really say what all needs done...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Refusal to do Management cleanup i.e. Client Services

    Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsFun culture, competitive compensation and strong CEO

    ConsSnagAJob.com continues to hold on to and even promote managers who kill employee morale and ultimately the complete vision that the founder has for the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhy SnagAJob continues to hold on to some of these folks in management is one of the secrets of the universe. Listen to your employees and the feedback that they have provided. All the consultants in the world will not change the fact that some of these Managers and Directors should not be managing.

    Company with lots of potential, not much else

    Sales (Former Employee)
    Glen Allen, VA

    ProsGreat culture, solid and diverse benefits.

    ConsRampant burn-out, not enough employee development and support coupled with too-eager attitude to toss people out, mind-boggling bad decision making (and decision reversing), zero collaboration between different teams, cocky and ineffective middle managers, and way too much attention paid to consultants (if you've written a book and had something/anything to do with a successful dot com on the west coast you too can tell this company what to do!)

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to lead, not just build culture; stop the mindless acceptance of outside consultant's advice; build a culture around employee trust and respect rather than frat house beer, antics, and slides.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people and culture, poor management and process

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Richmond, VA

    ProsFun, exciting, engaging atmosphere
    Management has a lot of things right such as the culture and physical environment
    Management definitely has a strong resume
    Benefits are great

    ConsManagement at Snagajob is chasing down the newest trends without having a solid foundation Management is secretive in a scary ways at times instead of being upfront (Big Brother)
    Despite the culture Snagajob does not know how to handle employees where it 'counts'
    Management does not seem to keep promises it makes to employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet you processes in order
    Be careful of your advisers/consultants: they don't always know better than employees
    Move the office out of Glen Allen and your probability of success should increase

    This is NOT a #1 small company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits and salary are competitive and the casual dress code

    ConsWork-life balance does not exist
    Does not live up to the internal values that are preached on the walls
    Do not be fooled by the casual dress, the environment is cut-throat
    Favoritism from middle management means there's a lot of room for unfair decision-making
    Unhealthy and unbalanced company
    Little room for career growth

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
