Pros

The corporate culture is unlike any other company; work hard/play hard mentality is highly encouraged by the executive team. Each employee feels incredibly valued and at the end of the day, there is a mutual understanding that everyone is working together toward one common goal. Fabulous perks: unlimited vacation days, health benefits, travel stipend, bonus incentives/all-inclusive vacations (for sales team), happy hours, company parties, fun and casual work environment.

Cons

Since the company is growing and changing at such an incredibly rapid pace, sometimes it can be a challenge to keep up with the ever changing rules & regulations and new releases of website tools & features.

    Pros

    Great room for growth, awesome executive team, young and fun work environment. They give you all the tools to succeed, and a great path for one to grow as a work professional.

    Cons

    Can sometime be stressful if you are on the sales part. There are high teams which are fantastic, but the low times can be stressful...but this goes with any sales job.

    Pros

    Working at WeddingWire was a privilege. Knowledgeable team-members and a positive collaborative atmosphere means opportunities to learn, hone your skills and push yourself. Self-motivated personnel will not go unnoticed.

    WeddingWire is also a community; there are many in-house social activities, providing time to get to know your co-workers outside the job. Employees have the benefit of unlimited vacation, being able to schedule longer stints off than is possible at many other companies.

    Consideration for promotion occurs yearly and potentially quicker if you excel. Managers are open to discussion about your ideas, concerns and are genuinely concerned for your well-being.

    Cons

    WeddingWire has retained the volatility of a start-up and is experiencing growing pains. Certain key team members have need to assume intense amounts of responsibility as a stop-gap. This can lead to much pressure and stress for those individuals and their teams. Growth has occurred almost too quickly and the company is working hard to adjust.

    Compensation is about average for people in marketing/software development. There isn't 401k matching. Though there's opportunity to grow, its also possible to get pigeon-holed if you're not assertive. There's a 'Work hard, party hard' atmosphere about the company that will appeal to some and not others.
