Pros

Great people, great culture, and amazing benefits are all reasons to love the Fool, but I love that the Fool promotes innovation, contrary views on myriad topics, and autonomy in everyday work. When I go on vacation, I miss the Fools that I work with, and when can you say that about a place of work? I also love that the Fool promotes working hard as well as enjoying your time away from the office.

Cons

Next steps in your career aren't always laid out, but that can be a great thing, too, because you can find your own path!

    Pros

    If you have an opinion, there are ample opportunities to let it be known. They have information sessions quite often that allow you to think about new or current business strategies and ways to improve our business. But most of all, they have the knack for work/family balance. "Ask, and you shall receive" is how I feel around here when it comes to what you need for your family. As long as you are doing a great job.

    Cons

    At times, they have strategies that are overblown and fail. I am sure this is for every company on the face of the planet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep testing new and current strategies to ensure they are in line with our purpose and values.

    Pros

    I couldn't have asked for a better summer internship than working at The Motley Fool. Beyond the amazing work environment, the Fool made sure to involve interns in important work, to the point where I felt crucial to the business by the end of the summer. You will meet fantastic people, learn about the world of finance from a Foolish perspective, and never want your summer to end.

    Cons

    At times, the company could be a bit disorganized and hectic, but you get used to it.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for reaching out and getting to know the interns. I hope that you continue to do so in the future!!
