    I worked at Nolo full-time

    Pros

    Parent company Internet Brands runs the show. $$$ ROI is the whole focus, almost to the exclusion of anything else. If you want to learn this kind of thinking, this is the place.

    Cons

    LOTS. Low payrate vs. industry for the knowledge set. Lack of communication about corporate direction...except make $$$. Medical coverage not horrible, but on the low side of ok. Overly rushed and frugal choices result in poor product quality and poor employee and customer support. Overall employee engagement is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and engage especially frontline employees for active feedback on the products and services. Mgmt has frequently made poorly informed decisions when asking ONLY those around them all the time.

    Nolo was once a great employer....not since they were sold, though.

    I worked at Nolo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nolo once had amazing levels of integrity as a company. They used to let you bring your pets to the office with you (within reason). It was a really fun place to spend your work day.

    Cons

    The new ownership has discontinued offering lifetime returns on their products and treats their employees like they are lucky to have their jobs. It is a very sad change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would behoove the new ownership to act with increased integrity towards their employees and clientele.
