    Decent day job with no future.

    Designer (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsFlexible schedule, relaxed office environment and friendly people. The company gives you as many other perks as it can afford to make up for the fact that it can't do much for your career.

    ConsBe careful if you accept a 'design' position in the 'studio' at Say. You will be used as a mindless tool and piece of human software for the sales department. You will work under talentless people with nothing to teach you and are entirely focused on deadlines. You will complain, your complaints will be heard, and then immediately disregarded. When working at Say you will quickly learn how the 'corporate game' works and what it's like to be a number in the system. If you're able to accept it for what it is, working there can be a decent day job before finding a real job/ career.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    XoJane internship was

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prossnax. satellite radio (nice but distracting in the office).

    ConsTeaching Jane Pratt how to use cut and paste on the computer. Transcribing hours of vapid celebrity interviews, for articles never published. Receiving good feedback for articles I wrote, which were then never published.

    No pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay interns if they are the ones doing the work-- the internship program offered little to no training and XoJane would not exist were it not for the interns-- the site was launched on the backs of those who were unpaid.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    "New" focus every 6 months.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey can leave you alone... (really a pro?)

    ConsThey keep changing the mission of the company. So be careful and ask about the last change of company focus if you're planing to get in here. This is signs pointing to trouble quarters ahead...

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet involve with daily operation and please, oh please, get rid of all of those managers/schedule wranglers and middle yes man... ppplllleeeaassse...... they all tried to safe their butt...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Buyer Beware

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFree Breakfast or lunch once per week. There are some very good people that work here.

    ConsHigh stress and long hours. Company is aggressive but needs a direction. At times, it felt like every department was going in different directions to obtain extremely high objectives. HQ building in SF was getting crowded so basement in building was rented for extra space. The basement was previously used to stash furniture but now it holds people. Also, Air conditioner in summer breaks every year for weeks and you are expected to sweat it out at your desk. Benefits are average if you are single and don't care about 401K matching.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHit the reset button and start over.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
