    Pros

    Viggle has a collaborative, open, and friendly culture. Working in that environment enabled me to learn things it would have taken years to learn in a different company. People are encouraged to jump in and make things happen. In two years, I learned what the revenue function does across all of the functions, and also learned a lot about technology. I grew immensely in the two years at Viggle and appreciative of the opportunity. Also made a bunch of friendships that I'll have for a long time to come. Great benefits and office space/location.

    Cons

    There have been changes in the direction of the business so if you are averse to shifting gears quickly, this might not be the right fit for you. You have to be very flexible in your attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on growing the business by listening to users.

    I worked at Viggle full-time

    Pros

    Met some nice people there.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Salaries are really low. Hours are insane. No culture. CEO is a certified CREEP. Bob Sillerman is a creep.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at hiring management. Mentor entry level people better. Pay them more money for their sweat and tears.

    I worked at Viggle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    free snacks, good experience for resume, nice downtown (now closed) location with views, and a pseudo fun workplace with attempts at culture building and positivity

    Cons

    In Seattle, it was a startup with a ton of turnover and poor management. They closed offices and consolidated in New York, so I have no idea what the latest culture is.

    Advice to Management

    Try for more transparency to your employees and dialing in on a clearer direction as to where the company is headed as a whole.

    I worked at Viggle full-time

    Pros

    The company known as Choose Digital was acquired by Viggle. Choose Digital had a great environment lead by its 2 owners.

    Cons

    Very much a confused environment as far as goals and long term purpose. Huge turnover on management due to a fragile finance.
    Unfortunately, Viggle, a public company, had a very different environment, and some of the CD employees were let go. This practice was very common on Viggle acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    The company changed to "Draft Day" to work with sports. Make sure you have a long term purpose, business strategy, and more important adequate funding!
