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

Pros

Work/life balance and telecommuting are great. Some very smart people in the company and there are big things happening across different products in the company. They have a great review process.

Cons

Top management doesn't talk to each other and there is no cross- functional collaboration. Each department lacks clear direction and vision from upper management. Culture is very clique-y also and no one is willing to help each other out.

Advice to Management

Share information, development, and upcoming initiatives to employees on a continuous basis and across departments.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. Great sized company and extremely organized for being a start-up. Management looks beyond titles and not afraid to hand off projects to more junior employees. Fully stocked kitchens and health benefits are awesome!

    Cons

    Lots of opportunity to streamline processes. No commuter subsidy. Major workplace silos.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent, compensate adequately and promote from within - everyone will be happy!
