About as good a place to work as an email newsletter company could be

SmartBrief Tech (Current Employee) Washington, DC (US)

ProsI have coworkers I like and I work on interesting things. I dress casually and roll in around 10. I feel like my peers and superiors listen to me and value my opinions. I've been able to advance my career in a somewhat shorter period than I think I would have been able to most places. There's beer in the fridge and the office is social.

ConsEmail can only be so exciting, even taking into account that we do a lot of interesting stuff around it. We can be proud of the products we put out, and our customers like us, but we're not saving puppies, orphans, or the world. We're not causing any big revolutions.

In my experience, office politics are better than they are be in other places I've worked, but it seems there are still occasional battles in the upper ranks that aren't entirely productive.

There are no offices in Hawaii or Costa Rica.

Advice to Senior ManagementCome to decisions and act on them a little more quickly.

SmartBrief's workplace culture seems to be an important reason that people stick around. Fight to keep it a positive as we grow.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good work life balance for a company going nowhere

    Technology (Former Employee)

    I worked at SmartBrief

    Pros: SmartBrief was a quirky place to work from its people to their product. Easy to take time off and days off were allowed… Cons: Company lacks organization and product development. Management seemed to know little about what to do and each group does their own thing. … Advice to Senior Management: Innovate and bring in experienced successful people to manage. … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
