    Pros

    Great remote culture, strong engineering team, great product team

    No major issues so far

    Advice to Management

    The management is open and honest, and they trust the employees to get work done. I’d say stick with that approach.

    I worked at Bleacher Report full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Reputation for being a growth company. Reputation only getting better

    Cons

    No leadership. No quality. No original reporting or editorial (other than social first animation)

    Advice to Management

    Think bigger. Turner Sports should be BR and not BR being a part of Turner Sports. Let the adults take over, the founders should have no place near any decisions.

    Amazing environment to work in. Great overall culture (who doesn't want to work in sports?!). Great benefits.

    Transparency from management needs improvement, at least in programming department. Very difficult to move up.

    Pros

    Atmosphere to be creative Chill work environment in-touch with the current culture if sports will certainly surpass ESPN at some point

    Cons

    Can be very "clicky" Promotions are based off how you fit in more so than your merit

    Advice to Management

    Bleacher is amazing and it's only a matter of time before they are looked at universally as the leader in sports. However, there's always room to improve and I believe making a more adamant effort to groom the people inside the building would help a lot
