    I worked at Plum District as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free lunch a few times a week and a fully stocked kitchen made working long hours bearable.

    Cons

    The management team was disorganized and seemed to have no idea how to interact with entry level employees without being condescending. The direction from management was also super inconsistent (i.e. one person assigning a task and another person mandating that you abandon that task and claiming that they've spoken with the task assigner only to hear from the original assigner that the task should have been completed days ago...bizarre I know.)

    Pros

    Really smart people, energetic culture, room to grow and explore your ideas. I hear the new management team is really smart and creative.

    Cons

    It went through some bumpy times like any startup, especially in the daily deal space. People got laid off, it really sucked. But a lot of the things people said on here tended to be rumors that were easily propagated because every one worked from home and spent a lot of time gossiping and freaking out for no reason. They definitely made some REALLY poor decisions, but there were also a lot of incredible people that were trying to do their best.
