There are great benefits (health, transit, 401k, tuition reimbursement, etc). The office is nice and new. Free wine and beer in the kitchen. Fun and dedicated co-workers (the ones that are still there, and didn't get laid off). If you stick around, you will probably get promoted as the people around you will leave or be let go.
This company being part of IAC, jobs are never safe. There's a "small company" feel day-to-day, but you're definitely a number on a spreadsheet, and your position can be eliminated at any time based on business/leadership changes. There were two "restructurings" this year, one of which resulted in about 1/3 of the company being let go. Leadership (at this company, and at most IAC companies) is very male and white. Recent reviews have mentioned disjointed and unclear strategy and company direction, which was definitely true until the recent takeover by Dotdash. Now, who knows.9

- 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!
- 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.3

New CEO was brought in about 6 months ago and is taking the company in the right direction. Everything is growing quickly (the team, revenue, content, traffic), so it has an exciting start-up feel with the stability of being backed by IAC. One of the smartest teams I've worked with - close attention is paid to bringing great hires in the door. Team is nimble and open to change for the better, which makes it easy to get things done. Plus, unlimited vacation & free snacks.
Previous management seems to have focused on revenue over product, so there is still a lot about the site & user experience that needs to be fixed/improved.1

• An inspiring company culture that starts with the CEO • An amazing group of hard-working, but incredibly fun co-workers • A very cool office vibe • An excellent on-boarding process that reinforces the company's values and goals • A relatively flat structure • A start-up feel with the foundation and backing of a large company • A clear sense of purpose that inspires and encourages hard work
Really, none worth spending any time on3

In the few short months that I’ve been with Investopedia, I’ve already gained an incredible amount of experience and knowledge. Management is open to new ideas and the work environment is very positive (lots of team spirit). Finally, the office is great; free snacks are provided and there is direct subway access from INSIDE the building.
The work flow is fast paced; however, this has helped me to stay organized and on top of things.4

Investopedia's now former CEO was so scatterbrained, which led to really questionable business decisions. He also created an uncomfortable company culture, with a weekly meeting called "Seven Minutes in Heaven" and followed by weird relay races that involved uncomfortable and awkward activities. We would always just chuckle and roll our eyes at his behavior but I don't doubt that that led to the decision to suddenly let him go (side note - he would always write these though leadership pieces and go on about the importance of EQ over IQ but would act a totally different way in the office, so don't believe all the things you read about great CEOs). It'll be interesting to see how the culture changes now that we're a part of Dot Dash. Moreover, senior management (with the exception of one or two seasoned execs) is laughable. There's a very blasé, bro-ey, and directionless vibe that I get from the leadership of certain teams, and I feel bad for my colleagues that have to work for them. If you're not an attractive young woman, you probably won't get much attention or respect in those departments. If you don't like the idea of your colleagues knowing everything that goes on in your life, don't work here. If you don't like the idea of executives hanging out with employees on weekends, don't work here. Sometimes I don't know if I am at work or on the set of "The Real World." That said we have great benefits which is literally the only reason why people stay here as long as they do.
With the Dot Dash merger, it's up in the air what the company will look like in a few months from now. Will I still have my job? Who knows. I was already looking before the announcement was made so my options are open.10

Had a small but great group of teammates, lots of autonomy to be creative, it used to be a nice small company to work for.
After the IAC acquisition things seemed to be going well, lots of focus on fixing bad decisions made by previous owners. Then a new CEO was brought in and everything changed, he has no focus, no strategy for the company, and is all over the place. The previous fun culture changed, everyone is being micro-managed, it seems like the managers are watching when you come or leave the office!4
