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

    Pros

    People are overall very friendly. The crowd is kind of young and open minded. HQ has variety of healthy snacks, breakfast foods, and beverages (including beer by keg). Standard benefits including Health, Dental, Vision, FSA/HSA, 401K with match, Commuter Benefits.

    Cons

    Salary is underwhelming. For a tech space, you'd think there would be at least one of the following perks: game/rec room, gym, shower, catered lunches at least once per week, company outings. Unfortunately, there isn't any of that. The "coolest" perk used to be the variety of beer but that has also been degraded with kegs that almost never work. The same excuse gets tossed around - that there is no budget. Typical penny wise but pound foolish kind of company. Attrition continues to be an issue, moral is at an all time low, and management is clueless. Promotions are unlikely and annual raises / inflation adjustments don't exist.

    Advice to Management

    Open your ears, and engage with your staff. Spend money on moral. If you're not going to be competitive in salary, then become competitive in benefits. Right now, you've got neither and it's no wonder why people are leaving. Also, provide annual raises because you're essentially having people work harder each additional year for less dollar value in their salary.

    Easy Interview

    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.
