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

    Pros

    I work with smart, nice, collaborative co-workers who are solving interesting problems to grow the company and deliver savings to consumers in new and innovative ways. Some part of my work is fun every day and a large part of that is due to company culture and nature of the business.

    Cons

    The company is still catching up with its prior explosive growth by implementing much needed processes. The business model needs to evolve to continue having success, but that is recognized and progress is being made.

    I worked at RetailMeNot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great engineering culture that promotes learning by working with the latest tech and being around co-workers who are helpful and smart.
    - Great work-life balance with some teams having a very flexible schedule.
    - Co-workers are relaxed and do not have large egos.
    - Able to work on and with industry-relevant technologies, which contribute to career growth.
    - Great pay relative to Austin cost of living.
    - A nice balance between professionalism and casualness.
    - Managers are a good bunch for the most part. Most do not have egos and they care about growing direct reports.
    - A good start to diversity and inclusion efforts in recent years.

    Cons

    - Questionable business outlook in recent years. The company is not going to die start-up style, but it is not doing as hot as it once was. This is felt by people at the company. At most, people feel that their work is contributing to sustaining the company, rather than contributing to explosive growth.
    - Questionable atmosphere after acquisition given high rate of departures.
    - Support burden can occasionally be troublesome depending on what team you are on.

    I worked at RetailMeNot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Great perks. Great culture. Great office
    * Amazing work life balance.
    * Awesome equipment to get your work done
    * Everyone is super friendly and helpful
    * Career growth can be fast if you know how to put yourself on the spotlight
    * Flexible work hours and easy going work environment
    * Great vacation policy

    Cons

    * NOT a meritocracy. Random engineers get promoted for soft skills rather than their accomplishments as a software engineer
    * Work is uninteresting for the most part. Haven't launched a single successful product in forever. Celebrates irrelevant things which are obviously not successful. Mostly pat on their own backs.
    * Depressing outlook for the future of the company. If you wanna go somewhere in your career, go somewhere else.
    * Leadership is uninspiring and mostly here to live a comfortable life, not here to innovate and move the ship forward

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who actually have a vision for the company. The foot soldiers are really smart and hungry for a challenge. Do something exciting to lift morale. The acquisition hasn't exactly done great to boost morale. Everyone loves a payday but they want more.

    Pros

    An amazing chance to work with people who care about the company and care about you as an individual. If you make an effort to drive your personal growth you will be given plenty of opportunities.

    Cons

    Individual responsibilities can sometimes be ambiguous - if you need to strong direction of what your work load will be from day to day and do not have strong initiative you may feel a bit lost.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing an amazing job - keep up the efforts to hold folks accountable for what they have committed to deliver. Increase data driven initiatives.
