    Pros

    They have really nice benefits. Free lunch, breakfast, snack/juice bar. There are a lot of company events. Working is fun

    Cons

    Work/life balance is a tough one. We get free gym to go, but I rarely have time.

    Very Fun But Distracting Workplace

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

    I worked at RetailMeNot

    Pros

    -Great benefits: Health insurance, 401k, equity, cell & gym reimbursements, free catered lunches daily, free catered breakfast twice a week, downtown Austin location
    - Fun young work space: You get to work with minds of the future, ages averaging between mid twenties and thirties. The office decor is impeccable, with different decor themes on every floor and everything ranging from a free coffee bar and barista to a fully stocked juice bar.
    -Incentives for working hard: Stocked fridge and keg for happy hour every Friday, tickets to various events including ACL and F1, and tons more.
    -Innovative learning experiences: Conferences that unites RMN global companies for a few days of collaborating, learning, and networking, followed by a huge themed celebrations and happy hours.

    Cons

    -Distracting- The transparent work environment RMN provides with an open desk layout combined with a massive group of young people makes for a very distracting work environment. The company does provide headphones, but that doesn't stop the noise around you and the distraction of people being able to talk to you at any time of the day.
    -So many meetings!- There are way too many meetings that are either pointless, not worth the time scheduled, or just distracting. The company is working on its meeting etiquette, but people find it hard to cancel ongoing meetings and determine who really should be in each meeting.
    -Too social- The social aspect of the culture is easy to get swept up in, and there is a constant struggle to get the 8 hours a day in you need for work.
    -Long hours- Constantly feels like you need to be checking your email even outside of work, that you can't leave for drs. appointments or even eat lunch away from your desk. There is little tolerance for flexible hours making it difficult for people who have special circumstance or who work better from different times in the day to be productive.
    -Felt like the career path was limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Continue working on meeting etiquette
    - Offer bigger meeting rooms for one person to work (not a phone room but rather a room where one person can go and close the door to concentrate and also have room to work)
    - More flexibility with hours- workers should feel like they can leave work and should be allowed flexible work hours if needed.
    - Cater better to different learning styles, spending more time understanding how employees work and how to best accommodate them individually.
    - Offer more assistance and opportunities for those who find they may be a better fit in other departments.

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

    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 a 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up

    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 offices are really fun to work in - very open environment, beautiful patio.
