    I worked at Bankrate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free drinks, 401k, new office

    Cons

    Struggling industry, unable to increase revenue by the leadership, getting more expensive than what they are bringing on board, no work life balance. promotion is based on your relationship with higher ups. The low life, Simon and Scott, are running their 'lip service'. They damn care about your culture and values and work life balances, even though they constantly give lectures on them. This company with its culture is bound to fail, bound to lose to its competitors-It is matter of time. I wish Red-venture will understand this and kick-out those 'corporate weeds' to drain the swamp.

    Advice to Management

    Clean-up the bad higher ups and bring on board folks who truly value employees and culture.

    I worked at Bankrate full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everything that seams like a pro turns out to be a con. Was a great place to work a little over a year ago, but keeps getting worse.

    Cons

    Randomly cut people for no apparent reason (16 to 20 at a time). Change tools constantly. Make you move desks constantly. Work you ridiculous hours, through lunch, evenings and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Those at the top are the problem. Listen to your employees and be honest with them.

    Thank you for your honest feedback and I certainly regret that your experience went from positive to negative in the short time you were with us.

    I worked at Bankrate full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Bankrate offered great benefits, 401K, nice office space, breakfast. Used to have great management. Now they are cut throat. Sad!

    Cons

    The company has fired a large number of employees just in 2017 to have the ability to bring on more analysts! For what? This company is headed to failing! The core of what made them a great company is no longer there.

    Advice to Management

    Dig deeper into your mid management teams! Many are only there because of "friends" as their bosses!

    I very much appreciate your honesty. Thank you, and as a former long-time employee you’ve undoubtedly seen many changes in our team over the last few years.

    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

    Pros

    Plenty of snacks and beverages provided. Bingo every Fridays with gift cards given to winners.

    Cons

    A lot of work given to Receptionist. Had me changing light bulbs, which was not part of my job description and a definite work hazard. Colleague that trained me was spreading rumors of not doing my job. Also, no orientation on first day of work? Had to figure out everything myself, so bad, I quit after a month. Hostile work environment.

    I worked at Bankrate (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Palm Beach Gardens FL office is definitely a pro with standing desks and a clean environment. There are plenty of in-office happy hours with alcohol and food provided.

    Cons

    Departments are led by managers who don't have the training and skills to get the job done. Promotions are only given to a certain few and if you aren't one of those few, you can work for years without a promotion or raise. If you are young and looking for a mentor, forget about it and look for a job elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who are trained and skilled to lead departments.
