    None to report in my time at Vertrue. I learned a lot and met great people and made lasting relationships with many people there.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing at this time as the company no longer exists. It was a good place to work and grow as a young professionsal.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Vertrue as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work was easy enough and the managers were quite affable. Using MS Word and InfoMapping I was able to bring the assignment in on time. The managers had someone explain to me about Landing Pages and how they worked so I could get a better idea of how to write the document.

    Cons

    There were no cons as there were on other assignments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing the assignments the same way.

    I worked at Vertrue full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In my 10 years with Vertrue, I learned so much about the inner workings of a corporate legal dept. After being employed for 19 years in law firms in litigation depts., Vertrue gave me additional skills of working with vendor contracts, corporate governance, marketing materials and other areas. The attorneys and legal staff were a great bunch of people. The office in Norwalk was 3 floors of an open space environment with a young and edgie (sp?) feel. That's right. No one had an office. The CEO, CFO and General Counsel sat out on the floor with the rest of us. I believe we had up to 300 people at one time. We had a large Board Conf. Room and smaller Conf. Rooms throughout the office. Furniture was unique and snazzy. 3 large Lunch Rooms on 3 Floors all had 3 large flat Screen TVs in each, along with a lounge downstairs that had bean bag chairs, ping pong table and video gaming console and other goodies. For the most part, I would say it was a young group in Marketing and Creative depts., and us older people in Legal and Accounting (older being over 35). Good benefit package, vacation was on par with other companies and holiday parties, cocktail parties and summer picnics were always a blast. I dealt on a regular basis with senior management, as well as all of the internal depts. from HR, to Marketing, to IT. All good people, always helpful. Work-life balance was good in the Legal Dept., I rarely worked over 45 hours a week. Perks -- annual bonus on top of an annual salary increase (but if you were an hourly employee, you did not receive a bonus only a salary increase). My salary was very good and I thank my boss for showing his appreciation by giving me such great increases over the years!

    Cons

    Did not like the small Darien office we moved to in 2013 with the 35 remaining employees. Also, I miss all of my Vertrue friends who have moved on to greener pastures.

    Advice to Management

    They are no longer with the Company.

    Pros

    People who are director and below

    Very nice offices and good benefits.

    Cons

    Coworkers are very two-faced as others have said.

    Business is totally sales driven with no respect given to customer experience. Sell anything and use various tactics to increase signups and subscriber tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making a good product that people actually want and will keep and quit the games.

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

    Pros

    It's a very Entrepreneurial atmosphere with good people, so it's a place to really have the freedom to get things done if you want. You can rise quickly.

    Cons

    Company is very misunderstood. They're are many regulatory authorities that are going after them because they have deep pockets, but they actually one of the best companies in their space compared to the competition.

    Advice to Management

    Just do your best

    I worked at Vertrue full-time

    Pros

    Good people, cool office building

    Cons

    Didn't navigate fast enough to avoid failing, wasted tons of money on marketing old products at the expense of funding newer, cleaner ones

    Advice to Management

    Don't say everything is going to be alright to appease us if you don't really feel like you are doing what you need to keep us safe.
