    I have been working at Angie's List full-time

    Pros

    Very casual environment. Good PTO policy. Decent salary. Free parking (on crappy parking lots though). Free gym. Super friendly employees (mostly).

    Cons

    No career path whatsoever. Buildings/room/office suck. Very shady landscape. No respect (engineering/IT). Highly chaotic and unorganized. Some are slacking off all the time while others are working their asses off. Some really unprofessional employees out there (yelled at you when things went wrong). If possible, get a contact and learn more about the company/department before accepting the offer. Huge turnover rate. It was a good place to work but not any more.

    Advice to Management

    This is a very promising business model. However clearly some people in upper/middle management are not qualified (no credentials or experience) for what they are doing now. Lesson 101: get ride of all the employees who are not qualified for their jobs.

    I have been working at Angie's List full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty easy work... About it. Site is constantly down/ marketing is constantly blasting (spamming) emails so there's plenty of work.

    Cons

    Management has no clue what they are doing. They constantly change things, just for the sake of change. The system they implemented doesn't work as it should. AL is leaking money, mostly based on the fact that they advertise on every tv/radio stations in the US. No clue on how to hit target demos. Losing stockholder's money left and right. Currently costs more to gain a member than that member actually pays to join the service. Cutting pay across the board to make up for their indiscriminant spending. Site sucks, hard to navigate, constant down time. Email marketing is just as horrible as TV/Radio marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. You aren't running a storefront, you're running an online firm. Quit spamming members, quit running ads on every single channel, and for god's sake, knock off the Automatic renewal. You're talking advantage of the elderly, and it's almost criminal. You're SEO sucks, which is also almost criminal. You're so busy worrying about the wording of everything, only because you're walking a very fine line. And if you do not start to scale back on the ads/sponsorships, you're stock will continue to plummet. There's a reason you have never been profitable...
