    I worked at About full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people were amazing in their accessibility and willingness to help. Great growth opportunities for those wanting to stay in this space, at least at the time of my departure. Most of the senior management team had been at the company since its inception or close to it, so they were invaluable as a resource for a junior person starting out in the industry.

    Cons

    Management has changed since I have left the company, thus I cannot speak to its current state personally however what I hear from former colleagues and friends is that the culture is suffering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the culture that made About.com such a wonderful place to work.
