I worked at FameBit full-time

Pros

Great location with tons of shopping and food in walking distance

Cons

This was one of the most toxic environments I have ever worked in. Management is paranoid and continually asks if you really want to be there. They promote employees that are just 'yes' people rather than who is most qualified. If you try to give constructive criticism or point out problems you will be labeled as Negative and will be fired without any previous warnings. There is blatant sexism and inappropriate comments made to the female staff on the regular.

Advice to Management

Treat all your employees equal, not just the ones who go out drinking with you. Stop being paranoid and learn to trust the people you've hired. Be aware and stop the sexism in the office or else it very well could lead to a lawsuit.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Free snacks and water. You can bring your dog to work.

    Cons

    It is expected that you go out drinking after hours with the whole team to be considered a team player. Very fraternity/sorority like environment. Lots of peer pressure to fit in or you get frown upon. The environment was created upon the trust of individuals that developed a personal relationship with management. There is no way to work up this company once you come in. Most of the team lack a leadership. Job is very demanding and stressful. You'll be required to work weekends with no extra benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend to hire more credible employees for management roles. Most of the lower employees have higher degrees with more experience than management.
