    I have been working at j2 Global full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Honest work , genuinely good people and managers!

    Great diverse location for after hours fun! Runyon Canyon, happy hour, movie premiers, shopping, and dining.

    Company does a GREAT job purging/managing out POOR performers. I've been in places where the morale is dominated by depressed negative co workers.

    Cons

    With my volume of sales, reconciling my commissions can take longer than anticipated but I always get PAYED!!!!!!

    The AC gets too cold sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the GREAT work. Consider building out an OUTBOUND sales team to generate more leads. Sitting around waiting for the phone to ring gets boring.

    Pros

    Very talented people who really care about the company's success. The company still does many extras for employees that were popular in the early days of dot coms. The work environment is fast-paced and exciting, lots of things going on all the time which is why there is always opportunities for you to show what you can do and contribute outside of just the job you were hired to do.

    Cons

    The compensation and benefits are not the worst but some improvement there could go a long way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the communication to the rank and file so employees have a better understanding of the end goals for the multiple projects going on.

    Pros

    Kind, selfless, generous management, who willingly volunteer their time and share their advice with young professionals and college students. Fantastic internship program.

    Cons

    Very, very few. Occasionally the office can seem a bit dull and its departments overly segregated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Thanks for a great summer internship.

    Pros

    * Abundance of projects to work on
    * Professional, respectful, safe place of work
    * Fair compensation
    * Easy access to management personnel

    Cons

    Human Resources seems inundated with requests, as their response times can sometimes be quite slow, and they don't always call back when they say they will.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    May need to hire more persons in the human resources department, in order to share the load with the existing HR team.
