I have been working at Motley Fool full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Because of the Fools commitment to transparency and focus on developing it's employees I whole heartily believe that I have learned more here than I could ever have hoped to have absorbed from any MBA program.

Cons

The Fool doesn't suffer fools. This isn't a job you "phone in". If you are not used to bringing your A game to work then this isn't the place for you.

    Pros

    The People, we call them Fools. Everyone here works together to accomplish The Fool's mission and have some fun while were at it. Plus we have a great office in a great location, did I mention the game room.

    Cons

    That I have to go home at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, the war to balance foolishness & work is an ongoing battle.

    I have been working at Motley Fool full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You're first and foremost a member - if you're not taking advantage of all the investing brainpower that's all around you then you are missing out on an amazing opportunity. I don't feel like I'm coming to work when I pull into the parking lot in the mornings - I truly enjoy what I do and the people I work with.

    Cons

    I feel like the company could use a little bit more overall focus - we sometimes get a little distracted by whatever the latest trendy book says.

    Advice to Management

    I hear all the time that it's a "flat" organization - but that's just not true. There's definitely a core group of cool kids that seem to steer the company zeitgeist. Also, your taste in music acts is not all that great - just sayin'.

    That’s a great line - “I don’t feel like I’m coming to work when I pull into the parking lot in the mornings.” We want all Fools to feel that way, and our culture is definitely oriented around ... More
