    Pros

    The Motley Fool's mission is to deliver excellent advice and research to our subscribers, in an accessible and fun way. As a team working on this mission, we're encouraged to harness our passion and use our best judgement to achieve this goal. Our goals and our members' goals are aligned: when they do well, we do well. The company treats team members very well by creating a stimulating and fun place to work, very generous benefits, flexible work hours, unlimited vacation time, casual work attire, and the list go on. Ultimately the company's relationship with its employees is founded on trust: they trust you do deliver your best in whichever way works best for you.

    Cons

    Honestly, none. I believe that if you can't be happy at the Motley Fool, the problem is with you, not the company.

    Advice to Management
