I have been working at Fandom full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Wikia has a beautiful office with excellent support staff keeping things well maintained. The location is nice, right in between bart/muni and caltrain. The product is open source and has millions of enthusiastic users.

Cons

Every job has it's downsides, but the good far outweighs the bad for me here. One challenge at Wikia is maintaining a very large product with a ton of features that sometimes aren't as well maintained as they would be if there were less features.

Advice to Management

It's nice to have democratic processes but often things are too democratic and decisions just need to be made. This company can err on the side of democracy over getting things done.

    I worked at Fandom full-time

    Pros

    Still some of the old Wikia spirit left below the upper management.

    Cons

    - Upper management lives in their their own world

    - Massive layoffs end of last year destroyed the company values, many good people quit shortly after
    - HR acts like they really care, but it's all empty talk and chaos

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility and quit and let people who love the company and product lead the way and not some NY sales bros.
    Also stop telling HR to report my ratings as spreading company secrets, you're getting pathetic.
