Sounds like aside from the energy drinks, we’re doing pretty well! Thanks for calling out feedback. It’s vital to our culture and we’re always aiming to make it as timely and effective as possible.

    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

    Pros

    I love the responsibility and the autonomy. Creative solutions are encouraged and ambitious failures are used as building blocks. It's a supportive office environment, very collegial and friendly, and there's a great esprit de corps. Our top Fools know everyone's name and set a terrific example. Hard work pays off here and high achievers can flourish.

    Cons

    The pace of growth is hectic and the hours can quickly add up. Reorgs are common (but at least they're done in the spirit of getting the most out of our in-house talent). If you don't love what you do, or you're not interested in business, you may struggle here.

    Advice to Management

    It's a great place to work, but keep checking to make sure people are keeping their heads above water.
