    I have been working at RetailMeNot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The perks of working onsite in the downtown Austin office are tremendous. Free parking (garage parking - no sun baking your car every day), a coffee bar at work, tons of snacks that never get dull because each month there is a fresh rotation. The real kicker is the constant willingness for feedback from the leadership team. It seems every other week there is either some form of a survey being sent out or an announcement on survey results and action items. It's one thing for leadership to say the right things to make employees feel like they are valued but RetailMeNot backs up those words with actions. Transparency is excellent - and the best example of it starts at the top with the CEO. We have weekly 30-minute company meetings led by CEO and other senior leaders where we discuss the state of the business and questions are encouraged (either live or via text).

    Cons

    There is a constant struggle between the benefits of the open-office setting (no one has an office, not even the CEO) that encourages collaboration with the potential for distractions. It's a known topic in the office and possible solutions are being looked at, but coming from an employer where everyone had offices and high walled cubicles, there is some personal adjustment that hasn't happened yet.

    Advice to Management

    Don't become complacent. The company is where it is at right now because of the constant challenging of the status quo. Keep it up and you'll be in good shape.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to grow and develop if you have a good work ethic and high-quality deliverable.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind that isn't common in other companies. I very much enjoyed my time and the people I worked with. I felt fortunate to work at RMN.

    Pros

    The environment is both professional and friendly. It's great to know that there is always someone open to take time out of their busy schedules to chat about anything you might have on mind.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything as my experience has been great!

    Pros

    Amazing people, team and areas of opportunities to learn. Everyone is treated equal here and has a voice. I enjoyed all of my time at RetailMeNot.

    Cons

    Being at a remote office it made career growth a bit of a challenge. I assume in Austin the growth chances are better.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to better integrate remote people into the process.

    Pros

    The people and the culture the company fosters is truly one of a kind. They don't just say they value their employees, you feel it. Beyond the free food, coffee, snacks, concert tickets, unlimited PTO, etc. (which are all amazing) the company offers meaningful career development opportunities through training, mentorship and even a Global Exchange Program. This later program is one of the best perks both from a personal and professional development standpoint which I had the opportunity to experience. If selected, you spend two weeks in one of our European offices completing a project you pitched to leadership.

    Finally, and most importantly if there is a desire to pursue other interests / develop new skillsets within the company it's highly encouraged. Many times you have employees start at one position / department in the company and end up in a completely different role a year or two later because their interests took them in that direction. This is hard to find and something I truly value about working here.

    Cons

    Things can be rather fast-paced and constantly changing due to competitive landscape, new technology disruption and more. While this can be pro as in you'll always be learning something new, its also difficult because what is important today isn't always important tomorrow. This can cause difficulty in setting accurate goals and achieving success.

    Type of benefits offered (food, bonus, etc. )

    Cost of benefits offered, runs like a small business, limited promotions outside of engineering.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent and provide equal opportunities for promotion.

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

    Pros

    Loads of ownership that you can mostly control.
    It's okay to fail. Place where you can learn from your mistakes.
    More good people, who want to WIN! A good mix of different opinions.
    Private (can be a con too for some) and backed by a company with solid business model and history.
    Working on some exciting products and deals!
    Growing slower, but more solid than before. Kudos to the Product team and senior leadership.

    Cons

    Planning with the full product and engineering teams every 3 months (or less) seems an overkill and mostly unnecessary.

    Advice to Management

    It's great to be part of the acquisition deal, don't screw it up. Let's become the Ultimate Savings Destination!

    Pros

    Dynamic environment which you feel is always moving forward with new tech, its keeping ahead of the pack. Management do a decent job of keeping goals clear and communication open. Good work-life balance. Nice offices. Relaxed and friendly environment to work in. Free food and coffee.

    Cons

    Needs a monthly update on revenue & engagement goals to be communicated company-wide
