    Pros

    Work on new projects, great development team

    Cons

    Disorganized, bad management, would have to work extra hours because certain people not carrying their weight without extra pay, parts of the company going bankrupt, no room for growth, young managers that care more about partying and spending money than learning how to manage a company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn how to manage a business and then you won't go bankrupt

    Pros

    ***Review for JackThreads, owned by Thrillist***

    JackThreads is the sister company of Thrillist, the company culture are pretty much the same, but not quite. The company puts a lot of money into keeping the frigs stocked with beer, and tries to do events like weekly whiskey tastings or football games on the weekend. It's very casual and laid back. As someone once put it, it's a company run by ivy league frat boys. There are also lots and lots of emails to the whole company regarding anniversaries, achievements, and not logging off the conference room computers.

    Cons

    As mentioned, while the companies are similar they are not the same, JackThreads wants to be concise and cohesive but isn't quite there yet. There's a huge gap between the two companies in terms of funding and budgets, which means everything Thrillist gets is better. Promotions are given based on seniority or favoritism. Upper management wants a say in every aspect of the company yet never bothers to find out what it takes to get there. People who dare to state their opinions are usually dropped after they finish their tasks at hand. In general, the company is disorganized and inconsistent with what they say they want/will do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized. Allow people who know what they're doing, do their jobs. You hire a lot of qualified people, now get to know them a little and maybe give them room to use their strengths to better the company - not punish them.
