On Friday afternoons at Bankrate NYC, it’s not uncommon to hear people shouting “Bingo!” To abandon any stress from the past week and end it on a fun note, the team has a tradition of playing Bingo together every other Friday—and it gets pretty competitive. To add to the fun, the NYC office also features foosball and shuffleboard tables in its cafe area for when workers need a break.
Bankrate has an open-door policy—literally. With its new open floor plans, employees are much more accessible to each other than ever before and the office has plenty of collaborative areas where teams can gather for impromptu meetings. The space also includes numerous writable surfaces to help employees brainstorm, and to add to the New York feel, 11 conference rooms named after different NYC neighborhoods featuring artistic re-creations of that area's landmarks.
Sometimes the best work is done after the most fun is had, and at Bankrate, the offices almost seem designed for fun. There’s foosball and ping-pong to be played, painting classes for employees, and even the occasional bowling tournament, as well as weekly bingo and various happy hour celebrations. On top of all of that, the holiday parties are a staff favorite.
Founded in 1976, Bankrate has witnessed many ups and downs in the financial markets and adapted to massively disruptive innovations, both within corporate culture and the financial world in general. Throughout it all, they’ve worked to make financial information safe and accessible to users outside the financial scene, providing reliable guidance in economically uncertain times.
Culture of Learning & Transparency
Bankrate recently moved into a brand new open-floor office. With whiteboard walls, daily stand-up meetings, and open-door management, Bankrate encourages collaboration and the free exchange of ideas. It’s this culture, along with the continual training both on and offline, that empowers employees to truly be their best and take charge of their career.
When it comes to what you can expect while working at Bankrate, our philosophy is quite simple: We take the employee experience very seriously by dedicating ourselves to those who drive results without ego, commit to making their colleagues better, and who are ready for challenges of working on the biggest personal finance platforms in banking, cards, insurance, and senior care.
We focus on things that matter most to employees beyond just their salary, such as individual development, creativity, rewards, and recognition. We also pay close attention to the qualities that differentiate us from our competitors–while we take our work seriously, we don't take ourselves as seriously. We laugh, we play, and we have fun.
At Bankrate, we're looking for talented, brainy people who also have a sense of fun and community. A serious discussion of the direction of mortgage rates can be followed by a friendly game of table tennis in the break room, a "town hall" meeting to update employees on company news and direction typically ends with a happy hour, and we put aside work for holiday happenings such as our Halloween costume and pumpkin-carving contests.

Advice to Management
Give recognition to everyone, not just those who are "popular" or already promoted.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bankrate (New York, NY) in August 2017.
Swift interview process that did not draw out for weeks. I was hired within two weeks of submitting my application. I had two phone screenings with an assistant editor and head of content.
