I have been working at Bauer Consumer Media as a contractor (Less than a year)
Management is very transparent and always open to implementing new stuff. The tech stack is always evolving and using the latest technologies. This company is great for learning and using the most cutting edge technologies. The team is also moving to open sourcing some of their own technologies, which will be exciting! Great work life balance, I have been here for 4 months and had never needed to work over time.
Not a lot of very challenging tech problems, mostly handled by vendors and external parties (such as social media login). Not a lot of perks like other tech companies (food, drinks, t-shirt) but then again this isn't a tech company. Sometimes beer will be supplied thats about it.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing, it's awesome! I would like to see some inhouse built solutions rather than using 3rd party for almost everything though.
