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

Pros

I love the responsibility and the autonomy. Creative solutions are encouraged and ambitious failures are used as building blocks. It's a supportive office environment, very collegial and friendly, and there's a great esprit de corps. Our top Fools know everyone's name and set a terrific example. Hard work pays off here and high achievers can flourish.

Cons

The pace of growth is hectic and the hours can quickly add up. Reorgs are common (but at least they're done in the spirit of getting the most out of our in-house talent). If you don't love what you do, or you're not interested in business, you may struggle here.

Advice to Management

It's a great place to work, but keep checking to make sure people are keeping their heads above water.

    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 Genuine leadership are suppose to inspire and enhance the heart, which has been replaced by fear and triviality .
