    Pros

    The work here is hard and challenging. There are many interesting problems to solve. You have a team of folks you work with that are always there to support you and help you grow. Also while hard work is expected, you used to be rewarded by leaders who go out of their way to recognize your sacrifices. Late nights, and weekends were the rare exception and work/life balance originally was built right into our company values and adhered to religiously. You used to have a lot of fun. The people you work with will be folks that you build lifelong connections to. We have an open environment that allows everyone to hear everything and be able to contribute at a moments notice.

    Cons

    Post acquisition poor leaders were imported from GoDaddy and the culture of a once great and noble brand was eroded little by little over a year plus. The depth of the decline post acquisition had shocked myself and all of my peers. The smell of desperation in the air was palpable and a community of like minded coworkers was replaced with a culture where everyone had to fend for themselves and watch their own backs. Corporate yes man were the preferred style of leader, who held little regard for their teams well being. Churn increased as folks were actively pitted against each other to build division to reduce resistance to changes.

    Changes were rammed through without any ability to discuss the well being of the employees. Minor missteps result in write ups, the corporate machine is a live and well. Leadership turned a blind ear, and said they heard but it was clear they did not care.

    Leaders were so desperate to meet goals that teams were "volunteered" to work over the holidays. Leadership did not stand up for it's most talented teams. "Agent of Change" became the mantra to push out folks who were resistant to the new lifeless style of management.

    Leaders talked longingly of a culture similar to amazon where you can work people until they can no longer take it and then replace them and start the cycle again.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your ineffective executives who are wasting your ~$90+ million dollar investment in a proud premium brand. Get back to the roots of what made (mt) as successful as it was. Listen to the advice (mt) was giving to make the mother ship more successful.
