    I worked at TheStreet full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I feel very lucky to have worked at TheStreet. Aside from offering a good salary and great benefits, TheStreet is the sort of company that encourages personal growth and experimentation, if you decide to just go for it. The sky is really the limit in terms of what you can try, provided you do a good job and prove that your projects have lasting value. There's full backing from management when you are proactive. There are a lot of young people in the company and good friends to be made all around. People are hardworking and nice. Jim Cramer and Elisabeth DeMarse are both great leaders and very accessible.

    Cons

    The company is still growing and with all the changes taking place, there can be a lack of communication down the grapevine. This is to be expected, but prepare to have to ask and inquire a lot to know what's headed your way in terms of assignments and obligations.
