Low Pay, Low Morale, No Future

I have been working at MyPoints.com

Pros

Nice people. Reasonable workload. Nice location in SF financial district.

Cons

Well below market rate compensation. Extremely poor management team. No advancement potential.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house in the exec suite. Pay more so you can get and keep better people. Consider trying to innovate rather than just launching me-too projects that never succeed in order to "check the box."

    A great place to float...bad place to advance

    I worked at MyPoints.com

    Pros

    Casual dress code/office environment, work from home opportunities, good office equipment (most employees are provided laptops and use double monitors, ergonomic chars), free Peet's/Starbucks coffee, a decent place to get a few years experience and move on

    Cons

    Very few advancements opportunities, almost a 1:1 ratio of mid-management to employees (IL office), utter silence in office, most communication is done via email, HR instructs managers to purposefully lower your ratings in employee reviews so they don't have to pay out higher bonus percentages, extreme disrespect to lower level employees from mid-management, tension between SF office and IL office, refusal to upgrade the company's business model...no one wants 20 emails a day, promotions are based on favoritism and hiring is based on referrals (even if the person is not at all qualified)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house of superfluous mid-management positions and listen to the ideas of the lower level employees, communicate openly, stop promoting those you like and start promoting those who do higher level work

    If you are not an original; don't expect to move up in the company.

    Pros

    Very flexible with time off. So long as you give fair warning, complete your work and have someone to cover for you, time off, coming in late or leaving early is never a problem.

    The employees are fun and nice, but some seem to think it is their job to point out every mistake you've ever made.

    Cons

    If you were not part of the team back when the company started, you have very little chance of moving up in the company.

    Salary is pathetic compared to the national average.

    Some managers say their door is always open, yet never want to hear anything you have to say. A few treat their employees like mushrooms.

    The normal people make the fun place, the managers and salary make it frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Say what you mean, and mean what you say.

    Don't tell someone that their idea is great, and then turn around and bash it.

    Give credit where credit is due.

    Praise people who do a good job publicly, provide criticism behind closed doors.
