Not the same Motley Fool

I have been working at Motley Fool

ProsBest benefits ever. Very generous healthcare plan - you'll never have to worry about anything. Peers aren't catty and genuinely try to help you do your best. Free food from Whole Foods.

ConsCommuting to Old Town is miserable, so unless you live in Arlington, DC, or Alexandria expect a rough ride. Tech tends are not based on adding value to the company, but are simply based on the Facebook mode of moving fast and breaking things'. To what end, that is not clear. Totally missed an opportunity to create a mobile app because they think the old white guys who use their services really don't have iPads. Taking advice from Board members who insist on a periodic purging of staff. If you voice dissent you will find yourself 'managed out'.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake note of the toxic environment that has developed in the last year. Tom and Dave are still the greatest guys you'll ever want to work for, but it just feels like they are losing control of the culture.
