    I worked at XO Group

    Pros

    Hours: Flexible (but well over 40) hours per week on average
    People: Amazing - smart, funny, fun, team players
    Atmosphere: very cool office, lots of events
    Work: Opportunity to work on lots of projects not necessarily in your expertise and really grow at the company
    Vacation: Management encourages vacation and I never had any issue with time off. They've all been very supportive through some medical health issues.

    Cons

    Too much change: Not being a stagnant company is great, but there is way too much change with management, organization structure, and turnover.
    Unclear expectations: You're working on X project but tomorrow you could be whipped around to now focus on project Y
    Stress: people take their jobs seriously and are passionate (a pro!) but the life or death atmosphere is taxing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearer direction, more (genuine) compassion and resource support for ALL roles at the company (not just product/tech).
