    1. 3.0
      Current Employee, more than 5 years

      Recent repeat acquisitions has lead to major attrition and lack of strategic focus

      Pros

      A dedicated and fairly mature DEI org with a variety of ERGs Flexibility to work remote or onsite Great vacation policy

      Cons

      Being acquired twice in less than 18 months has resulted in the loss of strong executive leadership and strategic vision for employees to rally around. Major attrition across the company but particularly within Engineering has essentially crippled the companies ability to ship, test and iterate in a meaningful way. Parent company has scaled back on benefits like cell phone and gym reimbursement

      It was good for a while

      Pros

      Work-life balance is good with the company. Allows working from home during COVID.

      Cons

      Change of ownership during 2020 seemed good in the beginning then the honeymoon passed and things rapidly changed. The new parent company is moving tons of engineering offshore with the pretext that Austin is too expensive. Key positions were eliminated and Engineering teams are asked to wear 2 / 3 hats to accommodate more responsibilities. This is in lieu of cost reduction but if you see the balance sheet the company still makes good money. Also, the core values that made the company great are no longer followed. The only valid bottom line is only one thing: save $ and cost reduction.

      Formerly a wonderful place to work, Future outlook uncertain

      Pros

      Wonderful people - Without a doubt the best thing about RMN is the people that work there. The culture truly was encouraging, supportive, collaborative, and well intentioned. Other pro's include a fun office space, RMN properties have good and healthy business performance despite the pandemic.

      Cons

      Parent company, Vericast, fired 5 out of 9 RetailMeNot Executive Leaders, the CEO and the founder. All were replaced with a new 'Senior Leadership Team' (SLT) at a the parent company level. All of the replacements do not understand RMN's business and they wonder why RMN employees morale is poor. It feels more like a takeover than a true consolidation or partnership. Other sister company performance Valassis, Harland Clark, etc, while larger in scale, were in decline prior to the pandemic and trends have exasperated. As previously separately run businesses, we were challenged by the Senior Leadership team through many 'war' references to take on the poor performance at a parent company level. The net impact leaves RMN employees feeling like we were punished because of other businesses performance. Perks and benefits are in question beyond 2020. Formerly RMN had very competitive and supportive benefits. Paternity leave, Vacation Policies are all anticipated to not be as generous in the future.
