Knot sure what's going on

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at XO Group

ProsThe underlings are smart, fun, creative, and will work tirelessly.

ConsCommunication is very bad. Those that have been given power are automatically seen as gods and can never do wrong. Tech dev is offshore and lagged behind for a while. Fears of losing their edge as they grow, this seems to be coming true. Board of Directors has been asking for something creative for years and all management could come up with was layoffs to satisfy stock holders instead of building or doing something really creative. This despite their continual mantra about having no debt and $100M+ in the bank. Place is becoming "corporate" and not in a good way.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget your roots. The Knot rose by being edgy along with creativity and respect for their employee's ideas. These days too few hold the ear of the decision makers. Knot has the money, stop spending it on overpriced officers and managers. Have the guts to take a chance and build something or look to Modern Bride for the outcome. As others have written here, beware some are only out for their own butt.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
