    I worked at Glam Media full-time (more than 3 years)


    There's not a lot you can say that is positive, unless the fact that there are other people in the same boat as you is a positive. You are not alone in your frustration. The company is solely focused on the bottom line. Although they have no problem paying $500K+ to the highest executives and founders who no longer contribute, they easily eliminate jobs at the $50K level to make their quarterly numbers when sales are off.


    The sales effort is smoke and mirrors. Clients only reach out to Glam to get a low rate and high reach, not to get quality. The company's ad products are a decade old, the blogging network is junior and their content integration offerings are stale. The product team is not innovative. Nor are the analytics offerings as they have proprietary systems that are not in line with what is offered by companies like Google and comScore and DoubleClick. Clients rarely return as their campaigns were run incorrectly by Glam or they found the company too difficult to work with. This means that Sales Executives have a very hard time retaining clients and keeping relationships. This leads to high turnover in sales which in turn affects the necessary staffing in all other departments, so layoffs are common. Upper management is out of touch, and no department is very happy: creative, tech, production, finance, strategy and operations are all looking to leave if they haven't already. It's a tell-tale sign when the head of HR leaves and within a few months the replacement also leaves. Turnover is very common, as are layoffs. And the CEO is unsavory but everyone kisses up to him in fear of their jobs. Blaming others is a big trend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire expert creative and stop having the creative development done off-shore. Hire real producers who know how to communicate and meet deadlines. Hire a robust analytics department. Get rid of dead weight at the top of the food chain who are making things up as they go along. Don't be a catalyst to office politics.
