Does Motley Fool offer massages?

Pros

I can't express enough the joy that I get to come work at the Fool; I'm empowered to make my own decisions and I feel as though those decisions are valued at a bigger scale. The people I work with are top notch, and so I'm constantly learning from them - not only in how to improve at my job, but learning across the company as well. Even when I first started, people looked to me for advice and suggestions which made me feel immediately like a valued member of the team. Leadership does a great job of informing the company of changes and priorities, so we all know where to best focus our efforts. As far as work culture goes, I haven't experienced anything that comes close. Teams go out of their way every day to recognize the successes of others, events are hosted to foster collaboration across business lines, and I'm still learning about new perks/benefits regularly. The insurance is incredible and my boss encourages us to take advantage of the flexible work options/no vacation policy. "Fun" as a core value is actually taken seriously. I finally feel like I'm encouraged to bring my whole self to work.

Cons

There's not a lot of structure regarding advancement which can pose a problem if that's something you're looking for, but if you're happy to drive your own career, the company offers a variety of options for that. Also, vegetarian options run out quickly at the twice a week subsidized meals.

Does Motley Fool offer dental insurance?

Pros

- Competitive perks and benefits: no vacation policy; medical, dental, and vision insurance; 401(k) company match; work-life balance; subsidized lunch multiple times a week; health and wellness initiatives (physical and mental); tuition reimbursement; learning and development programs - Mission-driven purpose to help people. - Open door policy to leadership and managers. - Fun culture and incredible work events (including +1 events) - Feedback is encouraged. - Casual work environment. - Professional co-workers who actually care about you as a person. - Focus on Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging. - Celebrations of Fooliversaries and culture of rewarding and recognizing. - Free food and swag. - Growth-focused company.

Cons

- Your career path is not laid out for you. You need to be your own self-driver and make it known what your intentions are in your career. (This may be a Pro for some people.) - Longer tenure, so Fools stay in their roles for longer periods of time. Growth opportunities are higher now as the company grows, but constant growth and hiring won't happen forever. - Your starting salary can be higher at other companies.

Advice to Management

Thanks for staying agile and open to change as we grow these next five years. Don't be afraid to fail. Your employees will always collaborate and bounce back together.

Does Motley Fool offer parental leave?

Does Motley Fool offer a wellness program?

Pros

I feel like an abused puppy finally finding her forever home. I am blown away by how generous and supportive the company is to its employees. The compensation is great, but it's more than that: unlimited vacation time, flexible scheduling, programs for mental health and wellness, reimbursement for health and wellness, incredible insurance and dental, a system for rewarding coworkers, and just overall an encouraging and supportive environment. I didn't know it was possible for a big company to treat its employees so well, and it kind of has me waiting for the other shoe to drop. I'm sure I'll be introduced to the head of the department for clubbing baby seals any day now.

Cons

Things move incredibly fast. A tool that was standard practice when I was hired, is now being phased out less than 6 months later. There's always something going on, and if you can't keep up with the pace in which decisions are made, you'll get left in the dust.
