    Pros

    This is a great and exciting time to work at About. There is actually a culture here, where awhile there was not much of one. There is so much energy, excitement and enthusiasm to do new things. If you have ideas, senior management wants to hear them and encourages you as long as they are thought-through (our first Innovation Tournament was a good example of this). The company is growing and while there a lot of new faces to get to know, there is so much to learn from and so many new things that people are bringing to About. It's really refreshing, especially for someone who has been here awhile. Love this place.

    Cons

    Don't really have any. Definitely been a couple years of change but that means that we're growing and trying to become better.
