    I have been working at Mashable full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work is exciting, you get a lot of creative control over projects, the senior management seems to care about the rest of the staff and there are always fun activities.

    Cons

    It's certainly a company in flux and there have been several management shifts lately that are changing the culture for the worst as the company searches for its footing and direction. There is also a surprising amount of internal politics that degrade communication between departments and levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tear down walls, pay attention to when employees are burning the candle on both ends, and increase pay.

    Pros

    Young environment and they have fun activities

    Cons

    Sr. Management is unorganizated has communication issues. Some have positions that do not match experience or prior job functions. Buzzfeed has surpassed Mashable,because Mashable always does the same things over and over again....they are not original.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone has been with you from the beginning does mean they are good for you today.

    Excellent CEO, Incompetent Staff

    I worked at Mashable full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    CEO is an excellent leader and good person. He shows everyone the way and all admire him. The brand's perception is good and traffic is flourishing.

    Cons

    The management lacks experience, is slow to hire and generally has no idea what it's doing. The company is cheap with important things and spends lavishly on trivial items and events. The management either keeps secrets from the staff or lies to them. Lots of office politics. Too many interns, too many inexperienced managers with way too much responsibility, and too many posers hired in key positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the CEO run things and get out of the way -- you have no idea what you are doing. Get rid of the dead wood in management, find people who know how to run an online news organization.

    I have been working at Mashable full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, reasonable salary, great co-workers. Mashable is growing -- and fast, which means there are lots of opportunities to stand out or carve your own path.

    Cons

    The downside of this rapid growth is the inconsistent messaging, especially from management. It's difficult to know what to do next. The culture can be unusually secretive and people who should know things don't always know what is happening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent about the challenges and realities with shifting from a 40-person company to a 100+ employee company.

    Best internship I've ever had!

    I worked at Mashable as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone here loves what they do, and you can feel it. The young staff is very motivated to mentor interns, because they were in your shoes not too long ago. And the very fast-growing company frequently hires people after their internships. Very comfortable offices with a lounge-like area if you're more productive on the couch than in a cubicle. Friday afternoons=happy hour. Need I say more?

    Cons

    At least when I was there (not sure if it's changed since but I doubt it), interns needed to bring in their own computers to work on. Not a huge deal, just a logistical concern. Honestly, can't really think of any cons! Amazing place to intern.
