    I have been working at Investopedia full-time

    Pros

    • 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

    Cons

    Really, none worth spending any time on

    Advice to Management

    My only real advice is being addressed: It's easy to be such a great place when there is constant growth and good revenue. But growth can change a company culture if focus is lost and not every year will be the dramatic growth of the last few. Work hard to keep what we already have.

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

    Pros

    Lots of perks (transit reimbursement, meal reimbursement, education reimbursement, lunch and breakfast catered once a week, snacks, beer, booze, etc) My experience has been really positive on my team as well, most importantly with career development and opportunity.

    Cons

    Given all the perks, they tend to pay under market for salaries. If you care more about work life balance, then you may not mind this

    Surrounded by great, smart people who genuinely care about your well being, your personal life and professional growth

    The company is rapidly growing and hiring so the office space is starting to get a little crammed.

    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

    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
