I have been working at POPSUGAR full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Work/life balance and telecommuting are great. Some very smart people in the company and there are big things happening across different products in the company. They have a great review process.

Cons

Top management doesn't talk to each other and there is no cross- functional collaboration. Each department lacks clear direction and vision from upper management. Culture is very clique-y also and no one is willing to help each other out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share information, development, and upcoming initiatives to employees on a continuous basis and across departments.

    Pros

    Sexy industry, young and vibrant workforce, technologically sound.

    Cons

    Inexplicable favoritism, high-school gossip mentality, no upward movement unless you're a "friend" of senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing more demoralizing to rising stars than to see someone else with a personal relationship with senior management leapfrog them.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. Great sized company and extremely organized for being a start-up. Management looks beyond titles and not afraid to hand off projects to more junior employees. Fully stocked kitchens and health benefits are awesome!

    Cons

    Lots of opportunity to streamline processes. No commuter subsidy. Major workplace silos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent, compensate adequately and promote from within - everyone will be happy!
