    I worked at Dice full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Casual dress, nice facilities, team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Woefully inadequate management simply didn't have a clue. "My way or the highway" approach prevented me from introducing any outside expertise. Any opinions from sales department will trump those of marketing or any other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop surrounding yourself with yes men. Realize that your staff in Iowa are not second-class life forms compared to the New York, Ivy League management.

    I have been working at Dice full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Pay is OK
    - There are some people there, primarily those that have been there 5 years or less, who are good at what they do and current in their knowledge.

    Cons

    - Absolutely no strategic direction whatsoever
    - Make people directors and managers just because they've been there a while
    - No communication within or between departments
    - Lots of dead weight staff that has been there a long time and brings no value
    - Stuck in the 90s for processes (when they exist) and technology
    - HR department is a laughingstock
    - Spends a ridiculous amount of money on fluff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of 90 percent of the directors and above in the organization. Certain areas are extremely over staffed, while others are greatly understaffed.

    I worked at Dice full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary was good. Compensation was good. Coworkers were great.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from management.

    I was terminated without so much as a verbal warning, a written review, or final warning. I got a call from my manager, and out of the blue I was informed I was terminated.

    Beware a company that lacks communication.

    As far as I knew, I was an employee in good standing.

    I moved from Colorado to Florida to take this job. In less than six months, I was fired. Again, without so much as a performance review.

    Beware! Beware! Beware!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your field sales team!
