    Former Employee - Product Manager  in  San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Product Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Wikia as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Flexible, fun environment
    - Working with modern technology & tools
    - Good to get a foot in the field

    Cons

    - Managers are chickens running around with their head cut off, doing as they please
    - No regard given for users that make Wikia what it is, resulting in much animosity between Wikia & wiki contributors
    - Often got late payments and never received last few paycheques, never got a response when I repeatedly asked what was going on with my pay
    - Low hourly wage
    - Slim chance at getting raise / promotion
    - Staff often leave to work somewhere else after a year or two
    - More focus on ads and ad placement than actual development
    - Focusing too much on making wikis a social media thing

    Doesn't Recommend
