    Mid-level Management are young so they are also trying to learn how to be good managers. Some are great individuals but terrible leaders. Culture is quite cliquey.

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

    Pros

    The people at the company are amazing. This is a place full of smart, cool and friendly people who are honestly trying to do great work and build amazing products. If you don't want to always be the smartest person in the room, this could be a good place for you.

    Cons

    The leadership team is young, passionate and inexperienced. Hence they tend to make decisions about the direction of the company without necessarily thinking them through. Once a decision is made, they go all in - investing time, money and people into whatever the latest new initiative is. Then, when the going gets tougher than expected, they tend to completely abort the effort, laying waste to people's effort, time, work, and sometimes jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you make strategy decisions, develop plans A, B and C. That way when things don't go as expected you can avoid a lot of panic and drama.
