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

    Pros

    • Supportive environment - people want you to succeed
    • Transparent on all matters - management wants people to know what's going on
    • Big focus on collaboration and coordination between departments
    • Huge importance on designing products with our audiences in mind and taking the time to iterate, test, and learn
    • Great company volunteering events to help the community
    • Great company social events to bond with coworkers
    • Good time off benefits
    • Everyone is approachable

    Cons

    • Too many meetings that are unnecessary (the company is cracking down on this)
    • Company is in a transition period and changes to organizational structure, and team structure is evolving (not as dramatically as several months previous). Can be kind of nerve wrecking for those that don't like things being "in the air"or undefined.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring people on board that care about our audiences, who don't have large egos, and that can work well with others.

    I have been working at Snagajob full-time

    Pros

    The people. Eclectic group of bright and fun people to work with. Work/life balance is very good with good working hours. Pay is good.

    Cons

    1. The consistent changes never get any input from the employees. There is a very large disconnect between what senior leaders think and what is said around the water cooler. In my division, there isn't a single person who is truly happy and not looking at other jobs. As more of a legacy Snagger I know from experience the way things used to be and they are going downhill fast.
    2. Layoffs - every day you fear for your job. Senior leaders aren't safe all the way down to the entry level positions. Seems as if Snag is just scrambling to satisfy investors and no longer cares about doing right by their employees.
    3. Product - the product doesn't have a clear vision anymore which is very confusing and certain teams are left in the dust when we all of the sudden buy a new company.

    Advice to Management

    Regardless of how you respond to this review, because I know you will do it in a politically correct way and that is fine, please internalize what I am saying. I am reaching out here because I don't think our advice is taken seriously in other channels.

    I worked at Snagajob full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I truly believe that most of the people working at SAJ believe they are working to make a difference in the world. There's something really valuable about being able to say that you help people find jobs for a living. In addition, the people at SAJ are some of the brightest and most creative I've ever been around. Management genuinely values Snaggers puts a priority on culture and benefits to keep morale high and top performers happy.

    Cons

    In my 5 years at SAJ, there was a lot of reorgs and shuffling around. However, I think things are now in a good place and the direction seems solid.

    I have been working at Snagajob full-time

    Pros

    Google-like culture in Richmond. Loads of employee empowerment.

    Prioritization for growing company is difficult.

    I worked at Snagajob full-time

    Pros

    Free snacks, on-site events, nice office.

    Cons

    The people who work here are very cliquey and will "haze" new employees by gossiping and shutting them out until deem them cool enough to accept into the group. They play up the "best place to work" mantra, but other employees are quite unpleasant. The CEO plays favorites and HR is pretty worthless.

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

    Pros

    Most co-workers are great. Salaries are above average.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, little communication throughout the dept for info that needed to complete your job

    Advice to Management

    Cut out most of the useless meetings that do not benefit anyone. Hire more experienced employees

    I worked at Snagajob full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I started as an advertising sales rep and ended my career in a Biz Dev role. Over the 5 + years I worked there I was given new challenges, pay increases, and added responsibilities on an almost annual basis. The company is caring, fun, and the benefits are awesome

    Cons

    Snagajob is growing and changing rapidly. While that may not seem like a con, if you are not able or willing to grow and change with it you may not enjoy your work. As I said in the pros section, my job regularly changed, some people may not like that.

    Pros

    Friendly people, great architecture, good perks. Overall a very nice place to work, smart people, good diversity and the various teams work great together.

    Cons

    I do not have anything negative to say about the teams or people I worked with or saw.

    Advice to Management

    When expanding territory and jobs are being created / transitioned in and to those locations, managing concerns and uncertainty among staff should be at the top of the list of priorities.
