    Pros

    This WAS a 'go to' place for bloggers and current information, no idea what suddenly went so wrong.

    Cons

    I am/was a freelance writer for this place, and it was a cool gig, I turned around stories quickly for them, I got a ton of eyes on my stories and they were popular. Then around May 2014 they changed their publishing backend from whatever archaic crap they were using to Wordpress. No notice to anyone, they killed their history and content and the site would go down repeatedly, for weeks at a time. I think someones son in law in high school is the CTO now or something. I had 3 excellent articles lined up and then on August 13 we all got a notice they weren't going to publish any more. Oddly, the same day that this new glowing review came in.

    Pros

    • The opportunity to grow is definitely there. • In such a small company, it’s easy to make a positive impact, and it’s noticed. • The industry is incredibly exciting, and the company has a strong team. • Most recently, Technorati sponsored my personal development through a PM course. • Technorati has a strong focus on the work-life balance. Extra hours are never been expected but it rarely goes unnoticed. • The office environment is fun, • We make solid hires. I'm from the Bay Area, but many of my close friends are current or former Technorati Employees. • Happy hours, company summits and bonding opportunities aplenty. • The work-from-home policy is generous. You probably won't be a full pajama-clad 24/7 WFH employee but it's not an issue if you have something to do that prevents you from making it into the office.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons. I really, really enjoy working here and I would recommend the company to anyone who feels like they would be a great fit.

    Pros

    Nice environment. Lots of food and drinks. Excellent view of downtown SF. Loved those hotcakes!

    Cons

    Waste of resources and money. Absurd expenses in nonsense things. Lack of confidence in their employees. Lots of time consuming and boring meetings.
