    I worked at Bankrate (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to maintain creative independence and avoid micromanagement, a lot of trust from local executive team to identify new & better ways to problem solve. Lots of company events & perks. Really strong team environment.

    Cons

    Discord among senior executive team, stagnation on projects that would have driven revenue and results

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the key operatives of your team & executive leadership, then work hard to achieve them.

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

    Pros

    Editors reply promptly and courteously. Once you build relationships, you can have steady work. Quality of writing on website is high, and everyone is professional. Pay rate is respectable for online work. Bankrate pays very quickly.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons. Management considers queries on Wednesdays, so get your ideas in on Monday or Tuesday for the best chance of success.

    Pros

    At Bankrate you are surrounded by great leadership. Senior VPs are very visible and extremely approachable. It's rare that employees leave which is a very which is a testament to the culture and success of Bankrate. When working for a company such as Bankrate, you can certainly feel good about the product that you are selling and take pride that you're with an industry leader.

    Cons

    I can honestly say there aren't too many downsides when working for a company like Bankrate. We've been doing buiness for a long time so change typically takes some time. Any change to the website is calcutated and tested before it's implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Keep dooing what you are doing. You've taken the time to put the right people in their positions and by doing so you have created a very positive atmosphere to work.
