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

Pros

It's a great environment to solve problems. The management really cares about it's employees and the benefits show that.

Cons

There's a lot of dead weight. Turnover is very low because it's a great place to work. Management, seemingly, gets attached to employees that have either outlasted their value or were never valuable to begin with. This demotivates "high-performers" and makes it difficult to hire and retain quality employees.

Advice to Management

Netflix, steal their ideas. Fire people that don't perform 20% above the mean.

    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!
