Ich arbeite bei Motley Fool (Über 8 Jahre)
Once upon a time, The Motley Fool was a fun place to work. We were small, collegial, and everyone knew everyone else, both within the Alexandria home base and outside of it. Lines of communication were short, and open. Writers focused on writing, collaborating with editors, but free to experiment, to range widely across subject areas, and to write as "investors writing for investors." Our focus was on educating, amusing, and enriching our fellow investors... and pulling back the curtain on Wall Street.
This has all changed. The Fool today is a marketing organization, run by marketers, and focused on selling product. Writing is stiff, formulaic, and run entirely by self-styled "sector heads" (editors who cannot edit their way out of a paper bag) and marketers. The editors spend their time fighting turf wars and putting writers in boxes. The marketers glibly inform writers that our purpose is "to sell newsletters." They're even instituted a blanket ban on writing about certain companies, with whom the Fool has distribution relationships. That would have been anathema to Ye Olde Fool. The fun is gone. The Fool's purpose for existing is mostly gone, too. It has become TheStreet.com in a funny hat -- and no one remembers what the funny hat was for in the first place.
Rat an das Management
Does that TheStreet.com reference sting a bit? It should. The company you created is being ruined by the folks you entrusted to run it. Get your heads back in the game, and get a handle on things before it's too late.

Ich habe mich auf anderem Weg beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Oktober 2020 bei Motley Fool (Washington, DC (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).
A thorough interview process that took around two months from initial contact to offer. The assessment was content-based and highly representative of one of the key parts of the role (content creation/design).
The final interview stage consisted of multiple short interviews with Fools from different areas of the business. Although there was pressure of being in an interview process, I enjoyed the interactions I had and meeting potential colleagues. This part of the process also gave me good insight into culture at TMF.
The interview process was pretty well organized and HR followed up well throughout.
