    CNET in Louisville was a great place to work

    Web Developer (Former Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsOffice environment was laid back, schedule was somewhat flexible but you still have to come in Mon-Fri. This could be different now as this was a few years ago. Folks would hang out on a Friday every month and drink beer.

    ConsEngineers in San Francisco didn't seem to respect people in Louisville much, but that's generally the case anyway.

    Are you a woman? Don't expect to get anywhere.

    Section Editor (Former Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsThe insurance was quite good (Blue Cross), with vision coverage included. Employees also got a week off over the holidays regardless of vacation hour status.

    ConsDefinite split between the way men and women were treated in the Louisville, Ky. office. Men (and the occasional female "guy") got promotions constantly, but women who had been there years constantly were overlooked. If there was a private office, it belonged to a male.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI was made redundant right before the CBS takeover. The management at the time was truly incompetent and ran CNET into the ground, treating employees like liabilities while telling us that we were assets. I can't speak for the current regime but many of the offenders are still there.

    CNET is an awesome place to work

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsCNET is a great place to work, complete with a diverse set of brands to work with, and a wide range of types of work to do. It is a company full of kind, intelligent people that know how to get things done, and has one of the best work environments that I've ever had the opportunity to experience. The work I've been doing here so far has helped me expand as a developer, and has taught me many new things about web technologies. The best part is, I'm not finished yet, so I have plenty of time to learn more!

    ConsI haven't been here for very long, but I can't think of any downsides at all! The only thing I could possibly think of is the distance from where I live, but that probably doesn't even count.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou're doing a great job!
