    Pros

    - Co-workers are very easy going and collaborative
    - Upper management is always willing to listen to new ideas
    - Equity in the company for all employees
    - Opportunity to take on new projects, expand the scope of your role
    - Recent changes in management has proven to be successful

    In general I am happy with SNAP Interactive. They care about their employees, compensate fairly, and have great benefits.

    Cons

    - The speed of innovation can be a little slow sometimes
    - The company is barely cash flow positive, but improving
    - Company hasn't grown much in terms of employees

    I worked at SNAP Interactive (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They legit let you play video games in the middle of the office. Also, weekly massages are nice. Benefits were pretty competitive too.

    Cons

    Management is totally incompetent, and the profitability of the business itself is predicated on intentionally misleading users (like, really misleading them). Having said that, they are profitable, which is nice.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real managers?

    I worked at SNAP Interactive (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at SNAP was very collaborative and supportive for devs and engineering, I made lifelong friends here and wouldn't trade that for the world.

    Cons

    Management is inexperienced and uninterested in providing a better user experience - they care purely about the sinking stock price. If you're in branding or communications, there is nothing for you here.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your own way

    Pros

    it's a start-up, but publicly traded...weird

    Cons

    as another reviewer mentioned, all the reviews were from the same month and are all positive. we were asked as employees to write them so all the content is highly suspect. don't be fooled, the stock price is trading at $0.11 for a reason

    Advice to Management

    haha like they would listen

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

    Pros

    Getting to work with other very tech savvy individuals and great perks.

    Cons

    Company is publicly traded but still acts like a start-up trying to find its way.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to be more open to discussion rather than creating a dictatorship environment (decisions and directions change on a daily basis ... concentrate on the long-term, as was done years ago)

    Pros

    - Inclusive, friendly work environment
    - Approachable and genuinely nice executives
    - Camaraderie between coworkers (who are all bright and good at what they do)
    - Fun perks: ping pong table, console games, free snacks and drinks
    - Company sponsored outings
    - Monthly Hackathons to inspire innovation and teamwork
    - Weekly and daily company check-ins
    - Celebration of achievements and constructive conversations about weaknesses
    - Cool office space in a great location (easy commute)
    - Accountability and trust - if used properly, there is a good work/life balance

    Cons

    This applies more to the tech industry as a whole, but it would be great to see more female developers.

    Advice to Management

    I read all of the reviews on here during my interview process, and I could hardly believe that all this positive feedback could be true... but it is.

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

    Pros

    True "open door" policy where cross-team interactions are encouraged and embraced with "open arms" by everyone in the company. A day never goes by without learning something new OR being able to teach others (As "Knowledge is Power", SNAP certainly hires the smartest and most talented individuals in their perspective areas of expertise...and THAT itself is part of the recipe in making SNAP the "Powerhouse" it is).

    Cons

    There just aren't enough hours in the day to learn all that is available at your asking (no fault of SNAP's).

    Advice to Management

    A more regular "State of the Union Address" would be helpful regarding various team projects and efforts to more easily wrap employees' minds around the "Big Data" collected which will in return spur additional creative ideas and discussions.

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people you'll ever meet collaborating in a warm and vibrant environment. Great benefits and perks like massages, knick tickets, ping pong, wii, free snacks and drinks etc. A family-like atmosphere b/c the company values personality and culture fit as much as skill during the interview process.

    Cons

    With growth comes organizational challenges and sometimes there are too many meetings and it's tough for everyone to maintain the same voice. But management is proactive and receptive and these things keep improving.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and continuing being open to change and progress.
