    Pros

    Talented colleagues, camaraderie, great products, excellent reputation in the field, mostly good benefits, a head-and-shoulders better place to work than my last tech media company.

    Cons

    Top management lacks vision and has stomach only for short-term strategies (few long-term investments). The business is run more like a public company than the private company it is. Technology and content are not priorities. Ideas that bubble up rarely go anywhere. Lack of respect for internal expertise. Recurring comparisons to consumer competition; we're B2B. Various departments have little understanding of what each other does. After so many cuts during the recession, people are worn out by extending themselves again and again to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Most of what's good about the company dates back to the 90s and before; most of what's negative from an employee perspective came about during the last 10 to 15 years. That's not a positive trend. Advice: Address some of the cons.
