I have been working at Spokeo full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great environment and culture. It's neither a big cooperation that drains your soul or an eager startup that demands it. Fantastic benefits and perks where employees are treated very well, but more importantly, I feel empowered to do great work, and feel the management is extremely supportive when it comes to improvement and change. There's no "status quo" or "be a rockstar/ninja" fluff, ego or propaganda. Just a bunch of smart, friendly people doing some pretty darn good work and enjoying themselves along the way.

Cons

It's a startup that's grown up really fast. As a result, lots of processes still need to mature to catch up with the speed at which the company has expanded.

    I worked at Spokeo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The perks are great. Company dinners, some cool people, casual atmosphere, and employee outings. Benefits are also great.

    Cons

    The terrible business practices make the job extremely stressful. Customers are always angry, and it's extremely draining to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    If you want Spokeo to be seen as a legitimate business with a good reputation, you need to seriously rethink your business practices because ultimately it's not going to work.

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

    Pros

    Single profitable product company. Casual and fun atmosphere. Good for early careers- first or second job.

    Cons

    Not innovative. Do not believe in research or testing. A lot of time spent creating small features that are not thought through. Bad place if you understand process or have or want to vet ideas. Company is actually run by co-founder, not CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Let your team do their job. Learn from them. You're smart, but not that smart.
