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

Pros

- New leadership team, led by CEO Elisabeth DeMarse, is transforming the business,combined with recent acquisitions, make TheStreet any exciting place to work.
- Company has start-up mentality where employees are encouraged to present their best ideas.
- Company operates at the intersections of media, investing and M&A. Very exciting space to work in.
- Strong senior management team fosters environment of collaboration, transparency and integrity
- Open door policy welcomed by employees
- Employees can grow their career internally in the different business units (TheDeal, TheStreet, Subscription)
- Food pantry is nice job perk.

Cons

- Lean team and fast-paced business so be prepared to work hard. Reward is exposure to management and great hands-on experience in an evolving company and industry.
- Would like to see more fresh fruit.
- Newsroom not as rowdy as I expected (think HBO's The Newsroom)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- I appreciate management's leadership and communication to the team as the business evolves. It is good for employees to see how they are impacting the overall performance of the company.
- Add more fruit to the food pantry

    I have been working at TheStreet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very engaged CEO Elisabeth DeMarse, management and key team players are making changes that are allowing the company to grow and prosper in a fast paced environment. CEO has assembled a team of some of the best and brightest who are dedicated and passionate about the business. New ideas are encouraged with an open door policy. Great brand, product and audience. I really enjoy working here.

    Cons

    Lots of competition in the finance space, but TheStreet continues to find ways to differentiate itself. In doing so, market share will continue to grow.

    I worked at TheStreet full-time

    Pros

    If you like the idea of no personal life and has the possibility of working overnight then this is the company for you.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be recognized for the hard work you do. Upper management has unrealistic expectations and project deadlines. They don't really care about employee's well being or career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be real and listen to your employees. Care more about the people.
