    Pros

    Still some of the old Wikia spirit left below the upper management.

    Kontras

    - Upper management lives in their their own world

    - Massive layoffs end of last year destroyed the company values, many good people quit shortly after
    - HR acts like they really care, but it's all empty talk and chaos

    Rat an das Management

    Take responsibility and quit and let people who love the company and product lead the way and not some NY sales bros.
    Also stop telling HR to report my ratings as spreading company secrets, you're getting pathetic.

    Pros

    Great kitchen and pantry
    Solid health benefits and some perks like swag...no 401k match
    Close to BART
    Talented and fun people across the globe

    Kontras

    Top management lacks diversity
    Interim CEO good talker but feels like secretly plotting
    HR talks about transparency but need more...see above

    Rat an das Management

    When a company is bought out change is expected. Things take time and not everything can be discussed...understandable. But there's been little communication from the top. It's scary and a lot of recent departures seem out of fear.

    Top management is all white men. New investors are all white men. All with the goal of making money. Some diversity and women in middle management.

    Sales, product, content, community keep plugging away awaiting new orders. HR making an effort but need more. Video leadership seems inept. There are good people left...just listen.

    Pros

    If you are a friend of the interim ceo, who’s so annoying and has no way to relating to normal people, you get taken care of. Snacks are a plus.

    Kontras

    Complete uncertainty and secret meetings make morale really bad. TPG fired the ceo after three weeks after the purchase. They made it seem like he left of his own choosing but he was fired. Trust me. They’ve brought in an interim ceo from TPG who so badly wants the permanent job but won’t admit it. They want us to care about the communities, but they are developing a community of staff who are afraid of losing their jobs. TPG moles embedded at the office have no idea how to run a company and how to build anything that is sustainable. Just look at the profile of the interim ceo. All he’s done is run companies into the ground. I have no idea how or why TPG is trusting him with all of this. He’s running fandom into the ground. They just care about saving money by laying off employees. They have no understanding of the meaning of mentoring and being loyal to people.

    Rat an das Management

    This advice is more to all the employees. Start looking for new jobs. It may not be today or next week or next month, but you will all be laid off the minute they can find someone to do your job at a cheaper rate. No advice for management other than to quit because you are out of your depth.

    Pros

    - A unique website and platform that provides employees with the opportunity to dive into their media passions.
    - Some incredible people work here - great personalities with a lot of talent. People love working here and you can tell.
    - Great work/life balance with generous PTO policy.
    - Plenty of opportunities to get involved in areas outside of your immediate focus if you so choose.
    - Has made great strides in branding and exposure over the last few years, FANDOM is in a unique position to represent the voice of fans in entertainment.
    - The company has refined its vision and focus over the last year, primed to make great strides forward.

    Kontras

    - No 401K matching.
    - Some teams are understaffed or under-resourced.
    - The wiki platform is dated in areas and could use improvements.
    - Some new features have been forced on the userbase to mixed results.
    - The longterm contributor health of communities isn't in the limelight.
    - Editorial and social voice still learning to find a genuine voice.

    Rat an das Management

    Provide more manpower and resources to the teams that need it, promote more natural talent from within instead of hiring outside of the company. Understand what it means to be a part of an online community - power users, admins, and fan contributors are the soul of the site. Their work and opinions must be cultivated and respected.

    Pros

    - There is some amazing talent
    - There's a lot to learn, but you need to have the drive

    Kontras

    - There's a lot of finger pointing when things go wrong. People need to take responsibility.
    - Management focus is tunnel visioned, so they start ignoring things that arent interesting to them despite being important parts of the business

    Rat an das Management

    Dont neglect your core business for the shiny penny you saw in the middle of the street

    Pros

    I started working at FANDOM (formerly known as Wikia) in May of 2011 and left in May of 2017.
    The place was my dream job, I grew from a social media coordinator to the Associate Director of Marketing in 6 years. I was able to work with amazing people on some of the most rewarding projects with what seemed like impossible goals. Achieving 250,000 pageviews in a month to one piece of content while supporting 15 other sold campaigns comes to mind as one of my favorite challenges.

    FANDOM (formerly know as Wikia) offered me the opportunity to invest in real relationships while working on growing my skills in; data analysis, project and resource management and a knack for problem solving.

    As an organization we laughed together, we grew frustrated together, we partied together and we cried together. I've attended 3 funerals for people who I still miss today. To call them simply co-workers would be an insult. I'm only an elevator ride away from some of my favorite ex-coworkers and I still make time to see most of them. I wish everyone at FANDOM the best and hope they continue to grow and prosper! 🤑+ 💰+ 💵

    Here's a list of Pros:
    - If you love talking about Star Wars, Harry Potter, Call of Duty, Destiny and Game of Thrones -- you'll be in heaven everyday. 🤓

    - You'll have pride in belonging to a company that showcases what online communities are capable of producing when it comes to content.

    - Great people!!! Some became friends, some became family, some were lost 😔and some still dislike or even hate me. 😄#ImNotPerfect

    - Awesome office with a picturesque communal rooftop deck for happy hours and emotional conversations.

    - Decent salary and PTO

    - Fun holiday and summer parties

    - A place to grow your skills if you truly care about learning how the site works and why it works the way it does.

    Kontras

    - What company doesn't have some cons .. It's work.. It's not supposed to be perfect.

    Rat an das Management

    - Fine tune some of the promotional features on Wikia to get people reading more FANDOM content.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with smart people and fun attitudes. Competitive salaries and pros outweigh the cons.

    Kontras

    Really tough to move up the latter. Management historically hires more talent from the outside rather than promote from within.

    Rat an das Management

    Do better at cultivating a learning track to faster advancement or lateral moves within the company, but don't forget to still reward and respect employees who wish to continue winning in their current roles.

    Pros

    Great perks and work-life balance is amazing. A real 9-5 job and very low stress. Very strong sales team and culture within the sales org. Snacks, work from home, booze, great office.

    Kontras

    Where to start? If you're not working in Sales, you have very little support from upper management. Projects are done and redone because no one can remember what they have asked for or seen before. Its like getting asked the same question every month and providing the same answer. Too many micromanagers on many teams.

    Rat an das Management

    Hire better mid-level managers. Hire less micromanagers. Have a growth plan for all teams and team members. Since I've worked here, I have never had an annual review about goals, growth opportunities, or career fulfillment.
