Employee Review

  1. 1.0
    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    Old systems, old thinking, and laughable brand

    Pros

    My focus at Technorati was to help publisher partners meet revenue goals. I was excited about the opportunity when I first joined: Technorati has great industry relations, and a legacy brand name. Lots of servers. After all, smart people built this!

    Cons

    When you pair old systems with a lost, almost laughable brand, it makes for a rough job. There's nothing forward thinking or advanced about this company. My experience was marked with little direction, invisible executive communication, and a collaborative environment you might find in North Korea. The only thing slower than our systems, were the clocks on the wall. Bleak upward growth (and I wouldn't want to be there that long, anyway) and Kansas City wages, made leaving Technorati an easy decision.

    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.
