    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Mashable full-time

    Pros

    The offices are clean and bright, great meeting spaces and everyone is pretty friendly. Also, the company makes an effort to diversify the company culture and to promote teamwork.

    Cons

    Company goals are constantly changing to accommodate the trendiest thing happening at the time. Don't get used to your co-workers because turnover happens frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Become less reliant on the latest trends in social media and focus on creating quality work.

    I worked at Mashable full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Snacks in the office, people are generally friendly and willing to help if they can, great location near Union Square

    Cons

    New management is there to pick up the pieces of the old and depending on where you are its either a good change or making the same mistakes over again. For the most part it feels like too little too late, and it shows with very high turnover in the last few months

    Advice to Management

    There is a very serious communication issue across departments, which is created by an even larger branding identity crisis. If Mashable intends to be a serious player in the industry it needs to solve both and fast

    Pros

    Great snacks in the kitchen! Beer even! And most of the people are wonderful. It's only upper management that are the problem.

    Cons

    All those talented people are super under utilized. Upper management is clueless about what to do with this company. There was a big layoff in April 2016, and as many people have left since then. Morale is down. But maybe Pete Cashmore will figure out how to steer this ship around.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees! And figure out an actual voice for this company.

    Pros

    beautiful office, HR team that is very helpful. This is the first time in my life I ever understood my benefits. No one is being micromanaged here, it feels like everyone trusts you to just do your job. A lot of smart and driven individuals make up the company. The CEO is very nice. Good benefits and lots of perks around the office, office manager is very accomadating . You will never go hungry here.

    Cons

    merit increases are very low.

    Advice to Management

    higher merit increases to stay competitive with the market.

    I worked at Mashable

    Pros

    -Fun and generally relaxed work environment -Friendly employees -Managers and coworkers take the time to get to know you -Very learning oriented -Overall an amazing place to intern, the office environment is never dull and all the people that work there are full of creative energy

    Cons

    -The workplace can be a little cliquey, be prepared to be social and outgoing if you want to have a a worthwhile experience -Although they are making efforts to improve this, a lack of diversity is still an issue

    Advice to Management

    -While having an organized internship project is a great wait to foster connections and camaraderie among interns, it becomes too much of a hassle as interns take on more responsibilities later on in the program
