    Pros

    Benefits, Parties, Regular Free Food, Pay, Access to Investment Material for Free

    Cons

    The position can be a grind.. can really wear on your over time. The company has some marketing tactics that aren't great, but the investment information is excellent behind it. They just promote it poorly by some people's measures (including mine).

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing things to keep spirits up with incentives like happy hours, team contests, random days off, etc.

    Pros

    Stansberry Research is an amazing company with lots of opportunity’s, this company is going places. As an employee I feel so fortunate to have found a company that really cares about their employees and want to see people success in work and in life.

    The team environment is fantastic with lots of like minded people who all want to work hard and get things done. This is a forward thinking company, they welcome ideas and are not afraid of change.

    Cons

    Things change and new ideas are always introduced, anyone who wants to work here needs to be okay with change and constant learning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Great coworkers and casual environment. Better pay since the CEO was thrown out and Porter took back control. Being surrounded by great minds. Throw fun parties and events. Always busy.

    Cons

    They say there's room to grow. That only happens if you are friends with someone in the department you want to grow into or with unethical tactics. Managers and Directors say they want your input, but no execution until the issue blows up. Then will pretend were never told about it before. Very misleading marketing that borders on the line of illegal.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and tackle the real issues. Treat your employees better and leave the false promises behind. Seems by the dates of the other reviews, is around the time when the place started going downhill fast. I hope for the sake of us employees, leaders step their game up quick instead of putting a bandaid on real problems.

    Pros

    Stansberry a highly entrepreneurial company that sets high standards but allows you to the freedom to think... to contribute... and really choose your own adventure. From the moment you step into the building you will realize this is a different kind of place - where a single idea, executed well - could quite literally change your life.

    Cons

    If you're not flexible... and adaptable you may be put off by the high rate of growth. This is not a company where you show up today... and 10 years later you're doing the same job, the same way. If you're seeking that kind of static experience, you probably won't like Stansberry.

    I have been working at Stansberry Research full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and encouragement from management to pursue your goals and passions, a fast-growing business with huge upside, lots of opportunity to get noticed and get promoted. Feels like I'm making a difference to the company's bottom line. Plus, a full gym in the basement doesn't hurt!

    Cons

    No major drawbacks to working at Stansberry Research, though that may vary from department to department.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your star employees feel like they can rise in the ranks. Be sure to give them more responsibility and promotions/raises to keep them around.

    Pros

    Every company says they are unique. This one truly is, from the unique work environment in 19th century mansions, through to the young and driven workforce. Ideas to improve the company can move directly from the minds of entry level workers to the eyes of the CEO. The pace of growth and change affords massive opportunities to all employees who are willing to work hard and step forward.

    Cons

    The pace of change is not for everyone. The culture of the company is one of testing, learning and moving forward. The status quo is not embraced. For the right person, this is a great place to work. That person must be open minded and embrace change and new experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to target new opportunities for growth. Continue to listen to your employees. Find ways to make collaboration easier across the different offices of the company.
