I have been working at Motley Fool full-time for more than a year

Pros

great place to work, smart co-workers, great atmosphere, excellent work life balance

Cons

doesn't pay like typical finance firms, pays more like a journalist job (company is a hybrid of both)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

reduce the promotional activities and focus on core brand. TMF does a great job of serving its community but recently has lowered its standards with gimmicky marketing materials

    I worked at Motley Fool full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Fool is an organization that truly cares about employees. As long as work is completed, employees are allowed to take time off as needed to recharge.

    Cons

    The only downside I view is that the company is located in Alexandria, VA, a pricey locale if you aren't making decent money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change who you are because of outside pressure.

    I have been working at Motley Fool full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Environment spurs creativity and trying new things. Great people. Celebrate the suboptimal!

    Cons

    In some cases single points of failure can present challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never stop focusing on communication within. It's the one thing upon which virtually every company can improve.
