    I have been working at RetailMeNot full-time

    Pros

    This job is seriously the best job I have ever had. I have worked for multiple companies and none of them even compare to working here. It is a fun and vibrant workplace where you want to come to work everyday. Each employee is extremely valued and it shows. I am so lucky to have this job.

    Cons

    Honestly, I cannot say anything bad about this place. The only thing I can think of is that I enjoy it so much that I end up working more hours then I intend to, which isn't bad at all.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show your appreciation it means a lot!

    Pros

    They treat their employees VERY well. Every perk you can imagine - they offer it...free meals, reimbursed cell phone, gym membership, parking provided or paid for. There is actually a full coffee bar with a barista. Rewards and contests are very generous - shopping sprees, trips, cash, etc... Plus there are international offices with exchange programs.
    The smaller size of the company allows for direct interaction with other departments which fosters collaboration and team work. The lack of politics is very refreshing. You really feel everyone is playing their part and working together to make the company successful overall - rather than pitted against each other as I've seen in other companies.
    The company is growing fast, so the opportunity for promotion and growth can be good in certain departments.
    Good management team that is very open to new ideas and suggestions.

    Cons

    Hard work and long hours are expected. But as mentioned above, they reward you very well for your hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the fast growth, increased size, and going public impact the culture and the way we do things.

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

    Pros

    The culture is great. I have worked at a few well known internet companies and I have never been at one that takes care of their employees as well as RetailMeNot. The senior executive team is very open, great at planning initiatives, and reacting to trends in the market place. Everyone is expected to be transparent and help the company innovate.

    Cons

    The hours can be long during peak periods but it is reasonable and you know when it will happen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard to maintain the transparency within the company now that we are public.

    Pros

    RetailMeNot is incredibly innovative and intrapreneurial. It is the size of a mid size organization but listens to it's people like a start-up. The level of transparency is unbelievable. People also really believe in what the organization is doing. The best part though are the people you work with. Smart people who constantly want to be better and better at what they do and leaders and managers who are willing to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty making sure the work gets done.

    Cons

    RetailMeNot is still growing and learning how to function as a public company.

    Pros

    - opportunity to work with the best and brightest
    - amazing leadership team
    - great career growth opportunities
    - amazing perks and benefits
    - awesome rewards and employee to employee recognition programs
    - super transparent, they share information with us that most employers would never share with their employees
    - A CEO WHO ACTUALLY CARES (imagine that) :)

    Cons

    - at times, longer working hours
    - the fast pace and somewhat ambiguous environment is not meant for everyone
    - WEIGHT GAIN from all of the FREE food (think back to freshman 15) :/

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the transparency - think that is one of the most important pieces to building trust within a company.
