Current Employee - Financial Editor/Analyst in Alexandria, VA

I have been working at Motley Fool full-time (more than an 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 have been working at Motley Fool full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    High performers are given a lot of latitude to work on whatever they want, whenever they want -- provided it's moving the needle. And the office is always a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Some can take advantage of the culture and not carry their weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are doing a great job. Our business and culture are both getting better and better.
