Pros

Pros: Great benefits; if you are in sales, you have the ability to make a decent amount of money; they are pretty good about time off; internet is open; no cubicles; kitchen is stocked with snacks/ drinks; generally a good atmosphere to work in.

Cons

No leadership; no opportunities to grow; unfair practices in terms of promotion; monotonous work; moving away from the startup mentality; constantly taking things away (benefits, 401k, commissions, kitchen); always say they are going to do xyz and nothing ever gets done; business model is falling apart.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Time for someone to take a leadership role at TheLadders.com.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, free food, unlimited vacation

    Cons

    Product doesnt work, the database of active subscribers is misrepresented to potential clients, impossible to get people to renew business after product fails - your classic "one and done", keep changing their business model, sales management have no strategy, no direction and no answers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make your flagship product better instead of offering different prodicts to drive revenue

    Pros

    Great Co-workers
    Casual Environment
    Challenging but well-defined goals
    VP-Level leadership that really knows their stuff
    Great perks - game room, unlimited vacation, etc.

    Cons

    Communication from the top down could be more regular and more timely in its delivery. Sometimes messaging about what's going on in the company is too little, too late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Three words: transparency, transparency, transparency. The staff levels through Director and even VP communicate really well, but there seems to be a disconnect at times between the executive team and the line leadership. Opening up those lines of communication would go a long way toward making a great place to work even better.
