    I have been working at Mashable full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People
    Unlimited PTO
    Snacks
    Happy Hours

    Mashable offers employees the typical perks of most start ups. Snacks, monthly breakfast, monthly happy hours, unlimited pto.

    I can only speak to my experience while working here, and I realize everyone's experience may differ.

    Mashable has done a pretty great job at hiring people that fit into the company culture. You can really work with some great people while at Mashable.

    Leadership is surprising. I've come from a background where most leadership teams don't speak to most employees, unless they are at a certain level in the company. That isn't the case here. I have found leadership to be very likable. They will pass by you and say hi, and maybe even strike up a small conversation. Again not typical of most leadership teams.

    Let's talk diversity. While I believe most companies can do better at hiring more people of color, Mashable definitely is open to doing so, and has done so on numerous occasions. I very rarely feel uncomfortable due to being a woman of color.

    Now on to HR.... I think HR functions pretty well. I can honestly say I trust the HR team at Mashable more so than any other HR team I've worked with in the past. I can tell the head of HR is not just interested in attracting top notch talent, but in retaining that talent as well. I've seen HR listen and take into consideration employees concerns.

    I've seen employees leave for positions that pay more money, and they regretted it. They often mention how awful the culture at the new company is. I think that once you work for a company with such an awesome culture, it's hard to find that elsewhere.

    Overall I am happy so far with my experience at Mashable. While no company will ever be perfect and there is always room for improvement, Mashable is definitely in my top 3 companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Doesn't offer free lunch (this is technically not a con, but it would be a great perk to have)

    Quarterly evaluations.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mashable.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and and in person. When I went to their offices, the person I met was off putting. I left the interview thinking I wouldn't fit in at Mashable. It felt like a trap for POC. Some of the people were really the 'gatekeepers', which explains why POC have trouble getting through the doors. Everyone else was friendly and the office looks cool, but the interview, while straightforward, was very uncomfortable.
