    I have been working at Wikia full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I've been at Wikia for over a year, and over all its one of the better places I've worked. The culture is friendly, and most people work 40-45 hours a week. The engineering organization has been slowly growing in the US, and growing very quickly in Poland.

    Its rare to find a place that is this enjoyable to work, that is one of the top 40 sites on the internet.

    - Wikia has one of the best work life balances of any place I've ever worked.
    - Good group of engineers.
    - Some Sr. Management hires have been stellar.
    - Great location, and beautiful offices.

    Cons

    While the above points are good, every place has its drawbacks.

    - Poor hardware setups for engineering, with a (mid range mac w/ a 3 year old monitor)
    - Lacks product vision
    - Poor career growth opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on a longer term product focus, and make bold choices regarding the product.
