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

Pros

The people and the culture are great. Lots of really smart, passionate people who believe in the mission. The Motley Fool is a unique place that is truly built to last. The business model has shifted, but the culture remains the same. Very employee focused.

Cons

I didn't get to wear my Christmas tie even once.

Advice to Management

Fool On! and don't ever lose what has made the Motley Fool a special company.

    I have been working at Motley Fool full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are beyond what other companies offer. The company seems to live up to most of its core values. Having tenure can increase professional possibilities. Professional growth is imminent.

    Cons

    Not all departments are treated fairly. Job duties can change at a moments notice without any collaboration with team, which is a core value. Financial/stock market uncertainties leads to desperate and aggressive changes in order to sustain membership. Keep the core value 'honest' at bay.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and cease the micro-managing. Management here are simply managers not leaders. They know how to get things done but not necessarily the right way. Genuine leadership are suppose to inspire and enhance the heart, which has been replaced by fear and triviality .

    I have been working at Motley Fool full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Because of the Fools commitment to transparency and focus on developing it's employees I whole heartily believe that I have learned more here than I could ever have hoped to have absorbed from any MBA program.

    Cons

    The Fool doesn't suffer fools. This isn't a job you "phone in". If you are not used to bringing your A game to work then this isn't the place for you.
