    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

    Compensation is competitive. Has a great office space and offers many fun perks such as catered lunch four days of the week. Breakfast too!

    Cons

    The new leadership fails to meet the stated values of the company. Transparency is given lip service. 2019 has brought a flurry of changes in effort to recover from a poor Q4. Change management during this process has been horrendous. This falls squarely on the new leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest. You hire smart people. We see your missteps and blatant communication "misses". It tears down trust.

    Pros

    RetailMeNot is a great company to work for! People expect you to work hard, but with that expectation also comes wonderful perks & benefits. Free lunches, accessible parking downtown, partnerships with gyms & fitness studios around town, matching 401(k) donations, charitable donations, insurance and more.

    The corporate culture continues to thrive! Leadership makes themselves available to listen to employees and bounce ideas around. Feedback is valued, and I feel heard when I bring suggestions to the table. The environment is collaborative and people are approachable.

    Cons

    While the environment being collaborative is overall a pro, it can be hard to find true quiet times away from your desk at times.
