    I worked at Snagajob full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits (vacation, 401K match, PTO for volunteering in the community, etc.) and great people here. The office in Richmond is pretty cool (there's a gym with locker rooms and showers, a slide, and ping pong) and they have organized social events throughout the year: volleyball, office olympics, grilling burgers and hotdogs, ultimate frisbee, etc. Coworkers are smart, dedicated and passionate. If you're trying to get away with doing the bare minimum, you won't last long here. HR is also really involved in trying to make this company a great place to work. They’re very proactive about listening to employees and relaying information to senior leadership. Overall, this is a good place to work for a couple of years, gain some experience, make some connections with people who will go other places, and then move on with your career.

    Cons

    It’s difficult to be confident in leadership here. Senior leadership has been a revolving door for the past three years and it’s hard to tell whether that’s the cause for the company restructuring every four to six months or if it’s just because they lack the foresight to make the best strategic decisions. Either way, the continual knee-jerk changes in direction results in good people leaving, either from layoffs or for better opportunities.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Coworkers are great for the most part, it used to be a great place to work from a culture standpoint and there are still some positive aspects to the culture remaining.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability is rampant and departments withing the organization do not always feel like they are on the same page and do not always work together well.

    Advice to Management

    Management seems out of touch with reality and makes decisions to go down paths and launch new products that aren't really ready for release.

    Pros

    Fun company culture with pretty sharp co-workers. All individual contributors strove to do the best work possible and focused on their contribution to helping jobseekers find job.

    Cons

    - Management ignored market feedback, and refused to make changes to the product offering despite consistent feedback on product packaging. Slow dev cycles & adoption of mobile made it difficult to compete in the broader job search landscape.

    - Petty arguments and conflicts could escalate quickly.

    Advice to Management

    - Be more nimble in the core product offering
    - Take in more customer & market feedback
    - Consider aligning book opportunities to provide equal potential success rates across brands.
