    I worked at Snagajob full-time

    Pros

    They offer some cool "benefits" - ping pong, a slide, food trucks, etc (only for the Richmond office though) - the Arlington office gets nothing exciting. They do pay well.

    Cons

    This organization is a complete disaster. Management cannot decide what they want to achieve and talk in circles, blame everyone else for their shortcomings, and blame their reps for anything that goes wrong. They have let go of quite a few talented and smart individuals for speaking out about issues, their top performers have left and the ones that remain are looking to leave. They talk about wanting to keep a tab on what their employees like and care about but ignore everything that is said. Their product is a mess, in order to fix the issues they have, they will essentially have to start over.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are the frontline of what the customer says and wants - you may want to pay attention to what they are telling you, it might help you understand what customers truly want. Also, you need to cut some of your middle management, you have too many cooks in the kitchen.

    Great coworkers (though many of them have left)

    Terrible decisions made in 2016. Commissions were destroyed. SLT doesn't value their employees. Culture on the decline

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of hipocracy and the dictatorship mentality. Stop robbing your salespeople of their hard earned commissions

    I worked at Snagajob full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay.
    Fun and open work environment.
    Free coffee, popcorn, and sometimes beer.
    Some great use of technology and some very bright people work there, although the crazies far outnumber them.

    Cons

    First off, let me say this review is for my time at Snagajob in the Spring of 2012. I never wrote a review then because I was so thoroughly disgusted after leaving that I could not have cared less. But after recently seeing that this place has a favorable rating of 3.7 on Glassdoor, I owed it to readers to know my story. I've been in IT for over two decades and Snagajob is the absolute worst, and I've had some major disappointments in both the private and government sector.

    I worked at Snagajob for less than a month. The first week was great, but then I got the most disrespectful, unwarranted, condescending beat down in my entire life on week two. I was talked to with complete disdain by a person who was a complete micromanager, who was a horrible low-talker, who didn't have any personal skills, who was obviously unqualified for the job, and who completely disregarded my wealth of experience and knowledge, that would have totally crushed her work if I would have ended up staying at that asylum. At the end of the second week, she took me aside in a conference room for 30 minutes and proceeded to berate me in a very offensive, passive-aggressive manner that was the most bizarre thing I ever experienced in the workplace. Complete sociopath, as were a handful of her co-workers that I encountered.

    At the start of week three I was looking forward to working with a different person assigned to me during the so-called 6-week bootcamp, but the first thing she did that Monday morning was inform me I'd be spending another week with her because my "performance was so abysmal" the week before. Those were her exact words. How's that for a good morning?

    Since my quick exit from that mess in 2012, I've encountered seven other former Snaggers with similar experiences. I even tried talking one guy out of going there, but he didn't listen. Five months later he was let go after being set up for failure. This scenario is not uncommon there. Avoid it like the plague.

    Advice to Management

    Admit that you spend more time on marketing your facade and phony reputation and not enough time on your products or your people. Fire the sociopaths and control freaks, and rebuild that crazy culture from the ground up. I don't know how you can get any new employees with your horrible reputation in Richmond, and beyond.

    Pros

    Some great co-workers.
    Nice location by the pavilion.
    Hardly ever worked over 40 hours.

    Cons

    The say "work hard, play hard" all the time, but don't do the play hard.
    They can't figure out how to move forward, they keep rewriting the same code and processes over and over.
    If you aren't a drinker, you won't fit in.
    There used to be a drive to improve the site in speed and relevancy, now it's all about increasing advertising.

    I worked at Snagajob full-time

    Pros

    - Some genuinely nice people who want to do the right thing
    - Incredible office space
    - Creative environment

    Cons

    - The culture is absolutely horrible. Don't believe the hype. Tons of backstabbing, management favoritism, heavy use of character assassination by senior management.
    - Executive management values tenure more than career experience. If you're an experienced professional, your experience won't be valued.
    - Expect to be moved around to new positions as management tries to "figure it out."
    - In an effort to keep everyone happy, everyone winds up miserable.
    - Overwhelming fear of change throughout the company

    Advice to Management

    You have proven that you are completely untrustworthy. In an effort to save yourself, you are hurting an incredible number of people. Show some real courage by doing what might be hard for you, but right for the company.
