The company feeds you quite often- one can always look forward to free lunches or bagels on Fridays. Casual work environment is also nice, as is telework when the opportunity arises to use it.
They drastically change their research model every quarter trying to keep up with Discover.org. Managers are simply awful, likely resulting from being leaned on hard by upper management and not knowing how to handle the situation well... there is also a lot of two-faced behavior regarding raises and promotions, of which there is precious little opportunity. Meeting after useless and time-wasting meeting. High turn over rate from employees all over the departments being fired needlessly or leaving for greener pastures. These employees aren't always replaced as the company seeks to save money and squeeze more out of the employees that remain. There is a lot of unprofessionalism in the office and a lot of obsession over Discover.org. I do not know of one employee there that isn't frantically searching for work elsewhere.8

Benefits and compensation are not bad for a starter job. Work does not overflow into personal life. There are plenty of surface level benefits such as flexible hours, casual dress code, and free lunches that are present as a weak effort to indicate that middle and upper management appreciate employees.
Busy work is outsourced to an offshore team, but the remaining work is still mind-numbing and repetitive. At the time I left, no standardized training was in place, and what little training there was fell on the shoulders of lower level employees who were already under the pressure of multiple deadlines. Goals and workflow processes are constantly shifting, which makes this work difficult to hone in on. Others who have pointed out the cons of logistics and day to day work have been spot on. However, what truly makes this work environment horrible is the culture, attitude, and business philosophy of RainKing, and this permeates through all departments. Employees are disposable. This is apparent in the lack of training, the lack of reception to feedback, the termination practices, and most of all, the disconnect between the CEO and the employees. Most work places necessarily will involve the CEO with the people who conduct the business operations, but not here. Decisions are value judgments are based on numbers (which at times make sense but at times seem arbitrary), and qualitative feedback is ignored. The peer to peer experience is not bad, but this unity is born out of necessity, as everyone is constantly on edge. And why should employees care to connect with upper managementould employees care to connect with upper managementould employees care to connect with upper management anyway? It's not as though there are any advancement opportunities. Morale is horrible, and it's because nobody feels valued whatsoever. That's no way to start a career. Do not get stuck working here. You can do better.7

Compensation plan. High commissions and strong salary. Great peer to peer work experience. Game changing platform.
Upper management asks for feedback once a year even though we have a very lean management structure. Feedback from the field is highly valuable. Middle management treats its direct reports in the most unprofessional manner Ive ever been around during 1:1 and then changes its tune during company outings in front of upper management. Pitiful and childish.4

Fantastic leadership team. Managers are promoted from within, upper management is top-notch. Plenty of internal mobility; do well here and you will have opportunities throughout the organization (research, sales, account management, IT). This is a small company that moves fast, all the while managers are very accommodating; people are not left behind as the organization pivots toward new and better processes.
The organization is a bit siloed; as roles become increasingly specialized, additional steps should be taken to keep teams and departments working with and talking to one another.1
