    Cons

    Producers are responsible for most of the work and what our members see on the website, but in return the ones who are scolded when something goes wrong and very rarely provided with any sort of benefits or compensation for good work. Raises are considered for the entire company at the same time each year, regardless of start date, rather than at the anniversary of employment. Raises and movement within the company are rigid and there is little room for growth, even for star performers. Upper management's desire to turn to a more European-style of management means that many promotions have been nixed, making it difficult to obtain a promotion unless having worked there for several years. All in all, there is little motivation to do well when barely any rewards are provided and there is no chance of promotion for a few years.

    Finally, benefits are minimal. "Free snacks" in the office run out by end of the day on Mondays. Free lunch is given once a month. Take a cue from other highly successful companies with a similar young, hard-working work force and provide more reasons to come to work everyday. We'd much rather trade the nice views from our office for free lunches, higher pay, and better incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for growth within the company and you will see less turnover.
