I have been working at Motley Fool full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You get to work with brilliant people in a collegial and collaborative atmosphere. There's a culture of innovation and hard work (which is nicely counterbalanced by a culture of fun). You'll have great work/life balance. Senior management/HR concerns themselves with recruiting the best and making sure their careers develop here, instead of enforcing inane blanket policies that make no sense. While most of your moves will be lateral here, there's room to move into roles that suit your talents and passions.

Cons

We as a company tend to focus on the new and shiny, sometimes at the expense of maintaining older projects/products. I think it's something we're continually working on as a group.

Advice to Management

Keep up the increasing communication with employees because they really like it!

    The People, we call them Fools. Everyone here works together to accomplish The Fool's mission and have some fun while were at it. Plus we have a great office in a great location, did I mention the game room.

    Cons

    That I have to go home at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    That may be the best “con” we’ve ever read. It’s so rewarding to see that comment, because it means our efforts to create an environment that’s collaborative, honest, fun, competitive, innovative and... More

    Sounds like aside from the energy drinks, we’re doing pretty well! Thanks for calling out feedback. It’s vital to our culture and we’re always aiming to make it as timely and effective as possible.
