    Pros

    Smart, innovative and collaborative teams. Departments work well together to create the best product and content. The culture is also great -- work hard with people who also want to work hard and have fun, too. And they're organized -- HR and talent are on top of it from the holiday party planned in advanced to referrals and communication surrounding them. There are great perks, too, like snacks and the PTO offered is amazing. The leadership team is very approachable, too. It's a great feeling coming to work every day knowing that I'm working with like-minded people. I can't speak more highly of this company.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Bankrate as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been a contractor for Bankrate for almost 3 years, I work with some pretty amazing people and have seen some really positive changes across most if not all the organizations within Bankrate. Between the state of the art offices, talented people, awesome culture, festive events, amazing benefits, and home life balance it's no wonder why employees are happy to continue their careers here.

    Bankrate and its organizations are scattered across the nation, whatever career or climate you may be interested in, you'll likely to find what you're looking for.
     Team collaboration is in abundance, being recognized for your dedication and hard work is always in the forefront, I've had the opportunity to work with many employees and teams, it always feels like the work is fresh and exciting.

    Cons

    If anything, the recent acquisition has created uncertainty but then again most acquisitions do! ; ) Being a contracted employee has its moments, although there's never a time I question being part of the team, a full-time position is always in your thoughts.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the path you're taking, keep the work fresh and exciting!

    Pros

    Bankrate employees are encouraged to share their opinions and work collaboratively. The company offers a great work/life balance, with a generous "unlimited" vacation policy. There are also several company outings, happy hours, Bingo games and more.

    Cons

    Bankrate was recently acquired, so there is a degree of uncertainty.
