    I have been working at Bankrate full-time (More than 3 years)


    fun culture among employees, pay is competitive, opportunities to get some good experience especially at lower levels


    too political. not enough communication of vision to employees. too much emphasis on short term versus long term.

    Advice to Management

    better communication, clearer career growth paths, more emphasis on long term goals rather than next quarter

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Bankrate.


    I submitted for the position online. I was contacted by HR and set up an interview. I met with HR and then a couple of managers from the department. The interview was fairly simple and straight forward. It lasted maybe an hour or so. I was offered the position very quickly and I accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked if I could spell the word "mortgage" because that's about the only skill you need for this job.   Answer Question


    No negotiation. They told me the range of salary for the department and they offered me the max.
