    I worked at Motley Fool as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, people are very open to talking to you and helping you (everyone), not the kind of internship where you are expected to get coffee and pizza for people, many other perks that include pizza days, omelets breakfasts, and desserts

    Cons

    The investment internship is loosely structured, although the career advancement opportunities are minimal since the internship does not allow opportunity for further advancement usually

    Advice to Management

    You're doing great Tom and David! Keep it up.

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

    Pros

    The ability to test creative ideas alongside smart, passionate people toward a purpose we believe in. Autonomy to choose projects and prioritize work the way I want to. Freedom to get involved in any part of the business.

    Cons

    There are so many things we still want to do, some days it can be overwhelming trying to do it all. To be successful here you should be able to manage your own work and make your own path.

    Advice to Management

    Keep telling us what your priority list looks like so we can ensure we are aligned with your vision and goals.
