Great company, but certainly not perfect

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Austin, TX

ProsWhaleShark really takes care (the word 'pamper' might actually be more appropriate) of its employees. As former posts have already stated, the perks are countless: catered food, massages, lavish parties, extravagant giveaways/prizes (i.e., brand new fiat, $20K costco runs), unlimited PTO, transparency, autonomy, getting to work with some of the brightest people in the industry, reimbursed mobile bill/gym membership, downtown location, etc. etc. etc.

Cons~Not much opportunity for upward mobility as they prefer to hire someone externally for leadership positions.
~Usually nepotistic in their hiring approach, which can sometimes get frustrating as it creates 'cliques' and visible favorism towards certain people
~Pay is lower than industry average, aside from engineering positions/leadership positions
~Engineering department favored while other departments are treated as disposables
~Favoritism in general runs rampant without repercussions; this leads to unfair treatment of employees as decisions are arbitrary when deciding if something is acceptable or not

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's perfectly understandable that you will have favorites, but concealing it would be most appreciated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Would not recommend

    Accounts (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    I worked at RetailMeNot full-time for more than a year

    Pros: A fun place to work with a good environment and location.… Cons: It is very cultish here. Everyone considers themselves to be the brightest people, though few actually are, and that arrogance binds everybody. It's very strange.… Advice to Senior Management: Better hiring practices and better HR. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
