    Pros

    Amazing view of New York City from our work deck, positive work environment, respectful and relaxed staff, creative work opportunities and a global company for flexibility if you're interested in moving around.

    Cons

    Not for you if you don't like the corporate cubical life. It's a great company, beautiful office but is does have the typical office atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My managers are fantastic- great at their jobs and inspire me to continue to strive for the best work possible.

    Pros

    Freedom of expression. Creative licence. Great people.

    Cons

    Lack of cohesive leadership. Upper management has a hard time relating to workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make deals with the Devil. Focus on what makes Ziff great, not on the company stock price.

    Pros

    Flexible, good people. They treat workers pretty well. I can't complain about the people I work with at all. Working conditions are good and there's not a lot of politics to deal with.

    Cons

    Company's financial situation hasn't been good. Hopefully that is resolved now. I'd like to see higher salaries and bonuses given to internet editorial staff based on the page views they generate for the company. If somebody is generating a lot of page views consistently give them a bonus. They need an editorial incentive plan for internet employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start giving out christmas bonuses again. Even a couple of hundred bucks is appreciated. Give people something to look forward to since stock options probably aren't in the cards anytime soon.

    Few of the managers shall be provided with some people management , behaviour aspects and team collaboration classes.
