    I have been working at POPSUGAR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Yummy, healthy snacks.
    Great location.
    Work with wonderful brands.

    Cons

    No transparency.
    Unclear strategy; no top down communication until last minute.
    No chance of promotion unless you suck up.
    Hard work does not pay off - big reason why people leave.
    Turnover means more work for everyone else - hard to retain good workers.
    Inefficient cross communication.
    Lack of mentorship - managers too busy with their own agendas.
    Pay sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads of the sand and listen to your employees. Reward those that work hard.

    I have been working at POPSUGAR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    the individual teams were so fun. We got each other through the day, made ourselves laugh. We depended on each other, and everyone was willing to drop everything and help the other. We created a family.

    Cons

    The executive team was the worst I have ever come across. Conniving and cold to each other, it was like being back in high school. We all regularly keep emails and voicemails from our bosses, because they are downright illegal, not to mention cruel.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your staff. We're the ones executing. You DID hire some of the smartest people I've ever met. And we know this company and have the relationships with the clients and vendors that make you money. Respect our ideas. Don't be so cruel and calculating. The personal attacks are recorded, trust me, and will get you in the end.
