    Pros

    Great employee benefits. Fantastic talent all around. Innovative thinking encouraged and rewarded.

    Cons

    Occasional long hours but that is to be expected in a fast moving retail company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of hiring from the outside (name brand resumes) instead of promoting from within.

    I have been working at RetailMeNot as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great culture, perks, and work environment. Everyone is friendly. I have interesting, challenging work and smart colleagues who help develop my career. Sometimes the pace can be slow but it varies, along with the type of work, which I like.

    Cons

    As an intern, I am worried about the brand if I work there full time, since I could have opportunities with much bigger name companies. But as far as the company itself, no cons.

    Pros

    Leadership is very transparent and shares its vision with all employees. They value everyone at the company. Coworkers are fun-loving, innovative, and happy. The perks are amazing - RMN provides lunches, breakfast twice a week, tons of snacks, awesome company parties, gym & cell phone reimbursement. The offices are really fun to work in - very open environment, beautiful patio.

    Cons

    You cannot work remotely, culture is you have to be here in the office.

    Pros

    It's great to work somewhere that's winning its market; and management seems committed to staying ahead of the competition by putting together the best engineering team possible. That means not only great coworkers whom I learn from and who raise the bar for me; but also really excellent compensation and working environment.

    Cons

    Some consider the downtown location a minus (I think it's great personally).

    Pros

    -Great opportunity to grow your career
    -Hard work is rewarded with promotions
    -Freedom to experiment and innovate
    -Top notch benefits/ compensation package

    Cons

    The most common negative you see in other reviews is that the company is a sweat shop. This is ridiculous. The executives work hard and set the example, but I've never been asked to work the same hours they do. This company is for those who want to challenge themselves and develop their career. If you just want a place to "pack it in" and work a 9-5, you can work here but you won't advance. If you work hard and grow your skills set, you will be rewarded. This seems fair to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at RetailMeNot full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, perks, parties - they have to do that to keep people here. The spending of of so much money makes me kind of nervous.

    Cons

    Something of a sweatshop, it is an inflexible work environment where they want you at your desk all day everyday. Very much a boy's club close to the top. CEO never makes eye contact with the rank and file. Not a lot of career opportunity within several key teams. There is an underlying attitude of arrogance. There does not seem to be much of a soul to the company except to get rich on stock and encourage people to buy buy buy. I get the feeling when a lot of these folks are able to vest their stock, they will cash in and fly the coop. I know I will.
