    Pros

    New office, standing desks, snacks provided, games for down time. Management is improving communication and employee perks. Great people to work with!

    Cons

    Promotions going to the wrong people, not enough credit is given where credit is due. Salary isn't competitive in non-competitive roles.

    Advice to Management

    Give recognition to everyone, not just those who are "popular" or already promoted.

    Pros

    Great all around environment to work in. Coworkers are very friendly and welcoming. Management very willing to add responsibility to your plate if you work hard and show you're hungry to contribute.

    Cons

    Just went through a huge management shake-up, so communication wasn't perfect between departments or management and employees. Having said that, I think after everyone settles in and adjusts the future is bright

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing new technology and trying to stay ahead of the curve

    Great work environment, Employees truly worked as a team no matter what department, Strong Management Support

    Company Execs stayed in legal trouble, Company lacked Sales incentives, limited product options for customers, Sales reps only allowed to promote specific products regardless of client needs.. in other words, a print rep wasn't allowed to sell digital, and so forth

    I have been working at Bankrate as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I appreciate that I am working on something new weekly, the work is never stale and I have been able to work with many departments, diverse backgrounds and amazing team members. I'm never siloed from team members, the work pushes me and enhances my background and experience. I may not be a full time employee, but I am not treated any differently than a full time employee. I am given the full employee experience and appreciated for my work, I truly feel like I am making a difference and my experience matters.

    Cons

    Not too many cons to share.....I do hope my work speaks for itself and I will be given an opportunity to be asked to stay on full time.

    Advice to Management

    Exciting changes are on the horizon for team Bankrate, keep pushing your limits and expanding your brand. I'm excited to see what the future brings!
