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

    Pros

    Free snacks and drinks. Modern looking office.

    Cons

    This used to be a great place to work until the acquisition by IAC, a rather large and 'typical' corporate giant. New management hires have been causing the culture to suffer and coming into work has become rather unpleasant for the last several months. We are currently seeing a large exodus of capable, hard-working, long-time employees, and as a result, workloads are becoming chaotic. Every passing month brings new negative changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've pretty much ruined everything there was to be loved about About.com. Don't think there's anything you can do to rectify it.
