Since becoming employee-owned, the company has had more oomph behind it. Not only are we taking IO back from our competitors, we are also cultivating new business. Sites are having their content updated by real people. Fourteen months of positive EBITDA is a great feeling!
People are generally helpful, if not necessarily proactive.
When considering new office location, input was sought from EVERYONE. Not surprisingly, the concern was commute time. The new location should be an improvement for nearly everyone.
Medical, dental coverages are good.
Fresh fruit, tea/coffee/soda and all the delicious sheet cake you can eat.
The business has a lot of moving parts. Errors introduced by one department remain until another department catches it days to weeks later. I do not feel like we're investing effort to prevent these.
There have been awkward departures of employees who was ill-suited/unhappy in their role.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at All Star Directories, Inc. (Seattle, WA).
Was contacted by a local recruiting company for a position at ASD. The recruiters seemed nice but looks like they were blissfully unaware of the job requirements. No phone screen, they just asked me to come in for in person interviews. After getting there, the first interview was by a SDET and SDE. Both were bored out of their minds and kept looking at the watch repeatedly. In the second interview, they asked me "What according to you is this job position about?". I told them that from what I know ASD is looking for someone with strong Java and DB skills. The 2 SDE's then tell me that is not true and that they are looking for a UI developer, cut the interview short and walk me outside.
I have had my fair share of interviews to know that before you call in a candidate, you are supposed to read their resume. My resume in no way stated that I was a UI developer. So thanks for wasting my time. Worst interviewing experience ever!
