Fun place to work with unfortunate upper management issues & lack of communication between departments
Video Development Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles – March 12, 2018
PopSugar is a digital media company that has been in operation for over 10 years yet still very much operates like a start up in many ways. A few of those ways being - 1) almost everyone is pulling more weight than they should be given their title/compensation, 2) upper management constantly changing processes, laying off teams, having difficulty figuring out and successful business model, and 3) as briefly mentioned in my last point, the company is not profitable in it's current state.
On the bright side - POPSUGAR office culture is akin to the tech/start up feel - open floorplan with no offices, fun events like happy hours to boost morale, snacks in the kitchen at all times.
Overall I am grateful for my experience at POPSUGAR thanks to the people I worked with (excluding upper management). The company for the most part operates like a "family" from a social perspective and your coworkers make it all worthwhile.
