I have been working at Spokeo full-time for more than a year

Pros

Single profitable product company. Casual and fun atmosphere. Good for early careers- first or second job.

Cons

Not innovative. Do not believe in research or testing. A lot of time spent creating small features that are not thought through. Bad place if you understand process or have or want to vet ideas. Company is actually run by co-founder, not CEO.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let your team do their job. Learn from them. You're smart, but not that smart.

    Pros

    Well you get free and nice lunch and company dinners all the time. People are nice and always be able to get help from work. It's like a fast growing company with start up culture, and really enjoy the time here.

    Cons

    The management is a little loose and not mature. No 401k (might be having one soon) and not fast-responding to h1b application for students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's fun and a good life-work balance here, just keep improving and spokeo gonna be a great company!

    I have been working at Spokeo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generally nice & fun people, startup feel, pool table, ping pong, 18 PTO days. Annual bonus.

    Cons

    Run by a group of stanford grads who believe they know everything. Find yourself berated if your opinion differs from one of the founders. Only 6 vacation days. Never allowed to work from home. Strict PTO enforcement. Lack of communication. Benefits are so-so.
