    Pros

    -Work-life balance is a priority to which PayScale holds itself accountable across most teams. -If you want to work a bit harder and learn more, you're often allowed to do that. -PayScale is the place to learn things, then stay for the great culture, or leave for higher pay

    Kontras

    -The outsize influence that individuals with poor business acumen had on decisions that cost the company (and customers) financially. -The company's propensity to allow known hostile individuals to remain in positions of power.

    Rat an das Management

    Use that classic management solution for the sake of people still at PayScale who interact with known hostile individuals: Place a number of polite and wise heads around a hostile individual, so that you can leverage their skill, but kill their negative impact on worker morale across multiple teams.

    Pros

    Pros: Great work-life balance. Great people. Everyone seems to care a lot about the customers, consumers, products, and most importantly, each other. Benefits are fantastic. My coworkers are super smart and the projects I worked on were really interesting.

    Kontras

    Cons: Engineering floor can't seem to hire faster than people are leaving. Company culture doesn't lend itself to documenting/sharing information well. I think PayScale has huge potential to be great, if they take these issues seriously and fix them ASAP.

    Rat an das Management

    Hire good people fast. When people leave, responsibilities get shuffled and stress increases, resulting in more people leaving. This results in a bad feed-back loop. You need to put a lot of effort into rehiring as soon as possible. If you can do this, then I think the culture will be very positive. Some positions are underpaid. Remember that it's more expensive to rehire than to pay correctly.

    Pros

    I like to evaluate jobs on 5 dimensions (I don't think I invented this, but I don't remember where I get them): * Total Rewards: This is how much money you're paid, the benefits, the fringe benefits, etc. * Your Peers * Your Manager * Interestingness of the work * Perceived social value of the work Everyone places different importance to the different dimensions, and everyone has a different... threshold. For me, PayScale far-exceeded my threshold (and all competing companies) for over a decade. * Total Rewards: The pay is competitive with the market. The world-life balance at PayScale is phenomenal. You're expected to work 40 hours per week. You're _rarely_ going to get asked to work more than that. The PTO is good. The week off for July 4th is _great_. The total rewards are 🤩. * Your peers: they're unique, they're interesting, they're ready to help, they're smart, they're dedicated, they're thoughtful. They're people you want to work with. * The manager: My manager fit my working style perfectly. He gave me the autonomy I needed and was always willing to help. * Interestingness of the work: There are _so_ many interesting things to work on. There are really important things to work on for our customers. * Social Value of the work: PayScale does primary research on important topics in the world. You will meet people who ask you where you work, and then say: "OH MY GOSH! I used you guys to get a raise!" You are helping employers understand how to pay people _right_. I loved my time working at PayScale. I whole-heartedly endorse it! I'm excited for the new execs. In my short time with them, I was very impressed and I think they'll do great things.

    The engineering org has grown a lot in the last couple of years. The team has outgrown some processes haven't been updated... mostly around communication.

    Rat an das Management

    Focus on installing a group of Engineering Managers to run the teams. Your awesome engineers need someone to continue to grow them. The VP/Director level needs someone to help them.
