Pros

You can obtain valuable knowledge about investing while working for this company. The company tries really hard to make it a cool and hip place to work, after awhile it does get weird.

Cons

Management at the company is like working from within a concentration camp. Everything is very top-down and your input will be ridiculed constantly by you management. There's a lot of nepotism within the organization making politics a very big part of everyday.

Privacy is not an option at this company. Desks are right up against each other, so that the company can pack as many people possible onto a single floor.

Advice to Management

I'm sorry that things didn't work out for you at AOL.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Motley Fool as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent team members to work with

    Cons

    The international team pushes you to write articles only to get hits, they have no interest in putting out thoughtful, valuable content. It has become a content mill.
