    I have been working at Spokeo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy the work environment here. People are friendly. It's an everyday thing to see co-workers smiling and laughing, in meetings and throughout the day. The ping pong tables and pool tables get a lot of use, and employees tend to have a healthy amount of socializing, including enjoying the company provided beer :-) Spokeo has done a lot in recent months to change in key areas where it was needed and I'm very optimistic about what the future looks like here.

    Cons

    I was warned by more than a few coworkers of the "Spokeo 15". With all the free food, snacks, drinks, and beer...it does take some discipline to avoid overeating! However, I love not having to make a decision about where to eat every day since they bring in lunch daily. Other than conference rooms, Spokeo has a very "open office" floor plan (even the CEO does not have an office). "Open office" floor plans have been all the rage in recent years, but some of us do our best thinking when we can isolate and control interruptions. The company has a history of not allowing working from home. For those of us who work most effectively by splitting work between environments, this precedent hinders top performance. I hear things may be changing to allow for more flexibility, and I certainly hope this will be so. I believe employees should be measured by the results they create, rather than the hours they are at their desk.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great culture and benefits that make this company excellent to work for! Allow employees the flexibility to work remote one day/week, contingent on them maintaining excellent performance. Of course, some roles require on-site presence more than others. But more flexibility in this area can help attract better talent, employees get to work in the fashion they are most productive and creative, and company profitability increases.

    I worked at Spokeo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employees care. Smart. Digitally capable. informal.

    Cons

    Driven by owners' preferences and desire for control vs. what's right for business and users. Face to owners..not to users / market.

    Advice to Management

    Be market and customer driven. Listen to employees. They ultimately know more then a few senior people.
