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

    Pros

    - Full transparency on whats going on within the company. I have been at different orgs where most of the company is in the dark with where the company is going. This is a complete 180 and I love it!
    - All teams really get to work together. I am still fairly new here but I always see a lot of collaboration and people talking to one another.
    - Finally moving to a new office space in the summer and can not wait!

    Cons

    - Its fast paced here, which makes things fun and constantly moving. Some can find this a con if not properly prepared but I enjoy it.
    - Currently a bit crammed in our office and limited conference rooms. Its annoying when your trying to focus but other teams are being loud or need a place to talk to your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, listening to your employees and hiring great people to work alongside.

    I have been working at Investopedia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I'm coming up on 6 years at Investopedia so I've seen the evolution after several ownership changes. Great company to work for. Start up atmosphere with the backing of a larger company. Your ideas are heard. Great culture. Great people. Really can't say enough.

    Cons

    Not really a con.....just more of a statement. As we continue to grow fast I hope we hold onto our small company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the transparency and culture going. It's working.

    I have been working at Investopedia full-time

    Pros

    Investopedia is an amazing company to work at. It starts from the top down with a genuine CEO who truly cares about each and every employee and how their work contributes to the bigger picture and company goals. The company culture is transparent, hard-working, and fun - we even have weekly all staff meetings followed by relay races around the office. I am delighted to work here and be surrounded by so many smart, hilarious, and dedicated co-workers and friends.

    Cons

    Lack of resources that a larger company may easily have due to its size

    Pros

    Really smart, dedicated people
    A CEO who cares about his employees' happiness
    A company that's clearly growing and not afraid to experiment while doing so

    Cons

    The company is competing in a tough space, but they're doing a great job and have "reinvented" themselves quite well

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

    Pros

    Company revenue is growing. The product continues to be enhancement with improved editorial and the vibe/culture is best in the industry.

    Cons

    Can the business continue to hire as talented individuals as the team has brought in over the last year? Can the great entrepreneurial culture be maintained as the company grows? I hope so.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have fun. Work hard. Build a great environment for employees in both NY and Edmonton. Keep sharing the company mission/ vision and strategy.
