    I have been working at ShareThis full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at ShareThis is like being a part of a family that cares about you. Everyone on the management team has families, and respects your time with yours. The company is doing great things and has an amazing future ahead. I've never been so happy in a job before.

    Cons

    There are offices in NYC, LA, Chicago, San Francisco, and Palo Alto. The company pretty small to have so many offices, so it takes a little more effort to build relationships across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the awesome going!

    Pros

    personal growth and office culture are awesome! I appreciate the people and the perks, especially since the work/life balance is so good.

    As a start-up, there is always a certain element of risk that is not for all people.

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at ShareThis full-time

    Pros

    - Great Sales, creative Mktg, dedicated Acct Mgt, committed AdOps, brilliant Engr and talented Executive team
    - Iconic product that's widely recognized with huge following that's used by almost everyone on the web
    - Legendary growth story with modern beautiful new offices throughout the country - LA, NY, SF, Chicago, Palo Alto
    - Catered lunches, social / team building events regularly - monthly transparent all-hands meetings w. CEO
    - Shoulder height cubicles, tall ceilings, open environment & workspace w. plenty of small & large conference rooms
    - Sustainable work life balance that genuinely put family/employees first. 3 wks PTO, 20 PTO starting 2nd yr

    Cons

    - Seems like we could deliver products to market faster
    - More accountability and clear definition about executing on strategic frame
    - Relatively diverse employees/backgrounds, but could still improve
    - YOY revenues still growing significant double digits, but slowing
    - Company needs a stronger mobile presence - mobile widget
    - Mature start-up that can use more maturity in mental attitude, but more risks in continuing to innovate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great improvement and evolution of the company and products so far in a very competitive and quickly changing AdTech landscape. However, would love to see even more unified, clear and achievable goals with the upcoming new strategic frame.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at ShareThis

    Pros

    I've been blown away by the environment & culture, the friendliness and talent of the team and the immersive experience that I've been thrown into. As cliched as it is, I started learning on day and have been amazed by the ramp up from there.

    The hiring process was also seamless, without the endless follow ups from me to a recruiter and lengthy decision-making I've seen at other companies. When the team here recognizes they want to make a hire, they do it.

    Cons

    None that I can point to yet

    I worked at ShareThis

    Pros

    ShareThis has a fantastic albeit competitive company culture. Watch out for a completely male-dominated and led sales team.

    Cons

    The board is trying to grow too fast (with upper and middle management not standing up to them) and layoffs occur yearly...with a ton of casualties. Pressure is huge and expectations not realistic. You're seen as a "goal" rather than a person. Blowing through funding with employee gifts, big expense budgets, and huge company offsite trips then doing layoffs to people who have works their tails off to bring the company success is shortsighted and speaks of poor leadership.
