    Third most visited, but what's their monetization plan? Investors are interested in making money, not fostering a platform for inane comments and cat gifs. Advertising would be the obvious answer, but Reddit doesn't have nearly enough targeting data like Facebook or Google do.

      have you guys used the advertising recently? Its gotten alot better. FB advertising is expensive and hard to grab people's attention through all the other posts. But reddit allows dor subreddit targeting and its getting more precise.

    Steve and Alexis have changed the entire company since their return. There is a lot of potential.

    They literally have a graph begging for money on their site... I just don't know how they'll be profitable

      Jeff bezos runs a real business, not an internet forum with no monetization plan other than 'ads'

    Reddit employee here - there's a lot left to optimize. The company might as well have started from scratch 2 years ago in terms of monetization efforts. That said, that side has been growing super fast, so it's definitely promising.

      Any insight into equity packages at the moment?

      I've been around for 2.5 years, but well over half the current employees joined in the last year because we have grown so fast. No idea what new employees are getting.

      At this point salary compensation and benefits are at the point where equity packages are probably not a huge draw.

      We have a couple previously Microsoft execs running the eng shop so you can imagine what it takes to draw those kinds of people in.

    engineering is also a mess. I guess that's why valuation is low compared to traffic.

      largely repairable in my opinion. engineering today looks drastically different than it did a year ago, or even six months ago. the right steps are being taken.

      Very repairable. Adults are in the room at all levels.
