    I worked at Bankrate

    Pros

    Company has name recognition
    Company is profitable

    Cons

    Poor senior management -- they have succeeded more because of luck and inheriting a business that unintentionally had very strong SEO than business skill or decent management skills
    Promotions -- titles and salary -- are given based on whether it's someone they want to hang out with and not on performance
    Dumpy no personality offices
    Stingy on equity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look harder at those who work hard and have the ability to move up
    Look beyond presentations and spreadsheets to see if people really understand the business

    Bottlenecks need to be fixed to make Bankrate a top company to work for.

    I worked at Bankrate

    Pros

    Benefits like health care, matching 401k, other employees, location.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a project to move along, it wont. There are way to many things that slow the process down in QA and IT. I came from a small company to Bankrate and got much more done in a smaller amount of time. Too many bottlenecks at Bankrate and because of this you will see many of the employees using work time for play time. Play Farmville lately? I like to be busy at work and this job was tough because I had to wait for approvals that never were in site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find and fix your bottlenecks so projects can move along and you will see and increase in productivity.

    Also the Accounting dept. needs to set-up a process to work with all the acquired companies instead of working against them. Standard forms, a phone call to explain your processes. I dont care how busy you may be in this dept. these types of things will save you time in the long run.
