    Pros

    The main core product is stable and has natural growth, as long as more and more people start and continue to shop online. There really has been no realistic competitor with enough capital to challenge this company because of their foothold in the industry for so many years. This allows the company to offer great health benefits, yearly bonuses, a stable job, and good perks. Many people at the company feel they are really something special simply because the company provides a backbone for their success to go unchallenged. The company is able to lure in some cases talented management from other companies through large compensation packages and probably good stock options. The business operations of the company are handled really well in terms of business internals (HR, payroll, benefits, bonus disbursement ).

    Cons

    Our startup was bought by this company and our culture was turned upside down. Immediately politics played a role and we had a project ripped out from us and outsourced to India; this company is big on sending stuff to India. This company is definitely not a tech company and will make technical decisions that will literally affect revenue of a product negatively based on assumptions and no fact. This company has old-school technical operations in terms of IT and server management. There are jobs that exist at this company that have been phased out by cloud services and hosted SaaS solutions. The IT operations has a strong foothold that will affect the productivity of a developer. The developer at this company can be compared to the importance of a developer at a digital marketing agency, expandable and having no say in anything that is done. Most of the people that have a foothold in the upper structure of this company were buddies at other companies and qualifications do not seem to matter. This company has a major problem with communication between management. Countless projects have been cancelled or pivoted simply because management could not come to a conclusion on anything. The likelihood of this company having another successful product that has the ability to contribute a reasonable amount of revenue to the main revenue stream is very low and highly unlikely. The process of building a product here is non-existent. Like most companies this company is in the situation having a dominant product because of timing and no-competition starting out. The core product has natural growth which is attributed to more and more people shopping online. If you are an older developer looking to have a stable supporting job this is the place for you; if you are hungry for gratification and really think you can make a unique new product or disrupt something do not join this company. The biggest threat to this company was Bing's cash back program which was dissolved. If a company with a large amount of capital and enough business and technical smarts were to challenge this company it could have a major impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the fat, the wheel does not need to constantly be re-invented. Inferior technologies were constantly being developed from scratch. If you have a war chest of funds use them effectively. Set deadlines for managers to make decisions; hold them accountable. Limit the amount of managers having a say-so in decision making. Learn processes and understand why a strict process is very important. You're in SF and have the funds, instead of having developers with no knowledge in certain technologies spend endless amounts of time researching something and making uncertain assumptions get with consultants who are masters at those technologies give advice. Get rid of the check collectors. Get people who really love what they do and can execute in reasonable amount of time.
