    I have been working at Ladders full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A beautiful new office with spectacular views of NYC. Free breakfast and lunch, and free dinner if you work past 7pm. Really nice co-workers, and low-stress 'start-up like' work environment. Company wide meetings with the executives keep employees in the know about the successes of our teams and where the company is headed.

    Cons

    Not much to complain about here. Our old offices had video games. Our new offices could use more comfort items.

    Advice to Management

    A fooseball or ping pong table would be nice. Also, we could use a company sponsored evening out at least once a month.

    I have been working at Ladders full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has really stepped up over the past year. New offices, a better designed product, more users, more job postings, more internal hiring and free food everyday. Also, really good benefits.

    Cons

    There's not much to say here. The new offices are a bit quiet, and could use more entertainment. We had classic arcade machines at our last office, and it would be nice to see them come back or get a pool table, darts or something to entertain employees during their downtime.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to do really good work, and continue to keep rank and file informed of product and company changes. All hands-on deck meetings are very helpful.

    Pros

    great work/life balance
    free food
    awesome team

    Cons

    far from home
    lunch sucks in this neighborhood
    crappy old building with slow elevator, so stairs up/down every day

    Advice to Management

    i would tell them to move to a better facility, but i heard a rumor this is already in the works
    reward the people in the company that are cool, fire the toxic ones (there are/were a few)

    Pros

    The people are smart and care about the product they're building and the customers they're building for. The benefits are great, especially the unlimited paid vacation days (and yes I've taken vacation) and the free catered breakfast and lunches are a nice perk. Plus, we're moving soon and the new office space is amazing (very modern, amazing views, a big step up). The company took all of it's employees to see Star Wars on opening day!

    Cons

    The company had high turnover earlier in the year, but it seems to have leveled out. It's a very collaborative environment (which is good), but sometimes it seems decisions need to be reached by consensus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring good people and listen to good ideas from your employees. You hired us for a good reason. Also, we could use catered dinners if we decide to work late.

    Pros

    Growing design, product and engineering teams with lots of cross collaboration. New UI and UX experiences for an evolving job seeker web and mobile product. Good user centered design principles. Nice perks like free food (breakfast and lunches) and unlimited vacation days. Nice company culture for the most part.

    Cons

    Coming had been experiencing some turnover, but they seem to have turned a corner and corrected the problem. Changing team dynamics due to growth/hiring, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    We could use catered food on Wednesdays and more team/company outings would be nice. Continue to clear roadblocks when necessary.

    Pros

    The environment is excellent. People are laid back and as long as you get your work done no one bothers you. I really like the people and have made a number of friends. Also, catered food 4x per week is a big plus!

    Cons

    The company's turnover has been high due to changes in strategy by management and from lack communication from management to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring good people. Give them direction and allow them to make decisions. Also, please keep the awesome free lunches coming!

    Pros

    I joined TheLadders right out of college and I am so glad that I did. I’ve been with the company for a while now and it has been a good experience so far. I’ve had the opportunity to work on many different projects and pick up various skills along the way. The kitchen is full of goodies and there’s catered lunch and breakfast every week. The offered benefits plan is excellent and I have a good work-life balance. More importantly, we are given the chance to work on meaningful challenges.

    Cons

    The turnover rate can be high depending on the department.

    Advice to Management

    Please work on retaining employees and nudging them to stay with the company. We have really talented workers that other companies may have their eyes on. Please do more to keep them.
