      Amazing Organization To Be Part Of!

      Pros

      Seeking Alpha is easily one of the world’s now most viewed business websites. It has a truly global operation, a respected brand name in the corporate world, and a surprisingly big and transparent staff. Their editors and staff are truly what makes this company stand out - it is a pleasure working with them and they are upfront and honest about everything and expect the same in return.

      Cons

      Online media is a bit of a roller coaster in terms of profits - they seem to be doing well but one never knows the future.

      Pros

      You had the freedom to make your position your own for the most part

      Cons

      New management came in last year and changed the culture. The company also went through several rounds of layoffs.

      Pros

      I really met some great people at Seeking Alpha and I got great exposure to new tools and gained knowledge in a new industry,

      Cons

      Company seems to play some favoritism and made some business decisions knowing that it greatly affect certain employees leading to lay offs.

      A good company, with a great product but severely underdeveloped company culture and unprofessional sales leaders

      Feb 7, 2020 -  in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There will be work to do; the NY staff is full of great individuals doing their best to make things happen. However, go in a with a innovative mindset, technical aptitude and emotional endurance. Know how to do your job, or at least invest time in learning. As there is no formal training program, you have to make sure you utilize your time to learn from the people around you.

      Cons

      Sales Leadership/Management at the NYC office lacks the knowledge and practice to develop individuals into a team. Their is no founding guidelines or principles that brings the company and its people in satellite offices together. There is a bifurcation between the NYC office and HQ that has over time withered employee morale and happiness - this is not due to individual employee, but underprepared individuals moved into management. The culture and environment seems to be disconnected and is led by people who lack the basic managerial skills to focus a team towards common goals. The leadership moves as a set of independent individuals and not as a team, which is reflective of how they treat people through good and bad biases. The Sales team is coddled far too much. Individuals attempt to cross-manage teams, which leads to increased tension and lack of operational efficiency.

      Unhealthy place to work

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The initial concept behind the company was a good one

      Cons

      A stressful and unhealthy place to work. Clueless management in the US office and the only opinion that matters in the company is that of the CEO. Disagree with the CEO and chances are you will be looking for a new job. They have definitely lost their moral compass and the majority of the talented people in the company have jumped ship. Work here at your peril!

      Avoid This Company - Toxic Management & Corporate Structure

      Pros

      It was a good learning experience, there was plenty of free food, and there were some great people "in the weeds" working there.

      Cons

      The New York office is a disaster. The Israel office (HQ) brought in a GM to fix it who only made it worse. An essential team received no support from their manager who has zero skills in directing people. Other teams had similar experiences with their managers as well. Working cross-functionally with other teams was always a problem, and often led to more issues because we were often left in the dark or nothing was being communicated properly. The processes in place are outdated and cause extra hours of tedious work. The blame is always pushed on others if something goes wrong, especially from the top down, which happens often. The turnover is incredibly high. In your first month or so working there, it is likely someone will quit. The company promotes a great work/life balance, however, one is often left working long hours because of the high turnover and lack of support. Lastly, there is absolutely no diversity in the New York office which made me feel very uncomfortable.

      Toxic environment - I began to fear for my safety

      Mar 6, 2020 - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      At the time of my employment, they had some dedicated account managers in NY and talented traffickers in India.

      Cons

      I felt harassed by male coworkers, including multiple incidents of physical aggression and intimidation. These men also made pejorative, gender-specific remarks about other women, including fellow employees. Despite being told both the COO and SVP thought highly of my work, I was let go shortly after filing a harassment complaint.
