Energetic work environment, but fast-changing model makes feedback fickle.

    I have been working at Motley Fool as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Terrific culture populated with genuinely good human beings. Management prizes tenure and seeks to keep the best for as long as possible.

    Cons

    Fits of experimentation can prove disruptive over short periods, but that's also the price of working in any high-growth, entrepreneurial environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yours is an increasingly distributed organization. Be unafraid to use technology to better communicate and collaborate with workers across the globe.

    I worked at Motley Fool as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, people are very open to talking to you and helping you (everyone), not the kind of internship where you are expected to get coffee and pizza for people, many other perks that include pizza days, omelets breakfasts, and desserts

    Cons

    The investment internship is loosely structured, although the career advancement opportunities are minimal since the internship does not allow opportunity for further advancement usually

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing great Tom and David! Keep it up.
