    I worked at Dice full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people. The people make the company what it is. The staff are VERY knowledgable and very friendly to work with. The personalities and the great work ethic the people bring make dice a great place to work

    Cons

    Complete and total vacuum in leadership. People being put in positions of great responsibility who shouldn't be running the corner gas station. Nobody has a global vision for this global company. Everyone (except a very few) in senior leadership roles can be sold anything at any time by a good salesman. Without a wholesale change in senior leadership, Dice may not be around in 5 years. Once great, now stale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink Denver and Santa Clara.

    I worked at Dice full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dice definitely pays well and has some very good time off policies with lots of vacation time and personal days, etc. The product itself is interesting to work on.

    Cons

    Ever since LinkedIn became a force, Dice has been challenged and along with the 2009 recession, this has caused quite a bit of turmoil. Turnover has been rather high and many good people have either left or been removed. Several changes at the top have also created concern and overall, the future looks fairly complicated for Dice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you can to retain the good people you have left.

    I have been working at Dice full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Talented co-workers, good vacation benefits and over-all company culture amoung lower ranks. SR. Management has the potential to be effective, if there was more oversite on HR practices.

    Cons

    Out of touch senior management, deplorable HR that unfortunately covers-up or creates problems. Real issues seem to not make it to senior management. Favoritism and unprofessionalism is especially noted. Wistle blowers have been terminated, leaving the rest of us to look the other way or face the same fate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire new HR personnel. The current team ia not reporting real issues that could lead to lawsuits if not corrected. In large part the HR Dept is the biggest problem Dice has.
