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

    Pros

    At LowerMyBills.com, managers do not micromanage their employees. I feel like a strong asset to my team and am encouraged by a constant positive vibe and energy around the office. There is a lot of room for growth within this company. It is a serious work environment but it also allows a lot of fun things to happen. We have Friday carts once a month that give out fun treats, we have a game room with a ping pong table and other games, a lot of tea bags to choose from, and two amazing coffee machines. These machines will make you lattes, other espresso drinks like mochas, and regular coffee.

    Cons

    They have vending machines for sodas, sports drinks, juices, and snacks. The cost of these items range from 30 cents to 1 dollar. I know that's fairly cheap but it would be nice if it was free like the coffee and tea.

    Pros

    Fast paced, ever evolving environment. Great people! A lot of money is dedicated to training and developing their employees. Community Service program is definitely a pro.

    Cons

    Management is weak on skill training - ie how to manage people. Lack of clear communication from the top down. Too much secrecy for a company whose credo includes "Transparency". Favoritism is strong; if you don't follow the traditonal path and are seen as 'different' it's a tough place to work.

    Pros

    Great culture, great benefits, smart people. This is a group of people who work hard and dont settle for average. Very analytical group of employees.

    Cons

    The org is a bit flat. While the strong survive sometimes the average can linger

    Pros

    Had the best manager, and worked in the best vertical (Home Lending) while I worked there. Everyone really knew what they were doing and was extremely helpful. I would quit my job now and go back to work for them in a heartbeat if it were the same company.

    Cons

    Sadly, after Matt left and Experian moved in, I am not sure that they know how to run a company or provide leadership. Combine that with 2 completely botched layoffs... Now they are only a shell of the company that they once were.

    Advice to Management

    Matt Coffin and Stephen were extremely competent leaders... I cannot say the same for Experian.

    Pros

    It has been an amazing place to learn and refine online marketing skills. The team is super smart and very talented. I have learned a ton while working there.

    Cons

    Recent cost-cutting/removal of perks because lots of our lenders are going out of business. There have been several reorganizations since Experian took control. It gets harder to identify the old LMB culture every day.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep some of the old LowerMyBills culture while integrating with Experian.

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

    Pros

    Amazing culture of openness, comradarie and encouraged curiosity. Most everyone is friends with one another and this friendship transcends company walls. The company has an open bar box at the Staples Center too which is a lot of fun. Lots of great company activities too.

    The management team has honestly cares about the employees growth and development -- even Steve! (the CEO). Very open and collaborative in this sense. All ideas are valued and vetted.

    Cons

    The monitors are way too small. dual 19"s. Seriously this isn't 1999 anymore... Also, unnecessary IT restrictions (can't install CounterStrike or iTunes) make me feel like I'm in the 5th grade (that said, the game room is excellent).

    Super heavy clock-watch culture also. In at 9 and out by 7 (granted, there is an opaque unlimited vacation policy).

    Advice to Management

    BIGGER MONITORS! And let us install video games so we can have LAN parties after hours :)
