    Pros

    1. Exceptional relationships with Retailers and Manufacturers
    2. Interesting Concept
    3. outside of C-suite, great employees

    Cons

    C-suite as a whole is challenged, political, continuously changing mind on things for no reason but their own personal gain, kingdom building, classic political issues with the CEO continuously claiming the opposite (with hope).

    Advice to Management

    Be on the level, easy to make sincere non-political moves to make a huge difference in the marketplace such as Channel Advisor or Bazaarvoice has done. Pick one thing instead of 100.

  2. The company provided great benefits but allowed only for an average employee's growth

    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - New Leadership gave hope of a brighter, more focused future
    - Talented, ambitious coworkers

    Cons

    - Sale to Google completely ignored an entire product line and complicated every process. A lot of good people were let go and driven insane
    - Old leadership was all over the place. No definite direction. Whoever yelled the loudest got their way.
    - Compensation was substandard
    - Too much micro-management
    - Employment was based on who kissed up the best/most
    - Talented, ambitious coworkers

  6. Last year before sale to Google was great

    Fun, passionate people. Splitting off myList saved the company.

    Pros

    Working with a lot of smart people. It was a fast pace environment and learn how to tackle different problems.

    Cons

    Too many times we tried and worked in things that did not go anywhere. Looks like management had problems staying focused. But during the last year there was a change in management and things really improved a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate in doing a few things and doing them well.

    Pros

    This is the most intelligent group of employees I've ever met. You'll be inspired every day by the people around you. If you want to learn, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    the work never ends. There is no 9-5 here; though you may be in the office those hours, you'll be working the rest of the night at home.

    Advice to Management

    balance workload for the employees

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to work on projects that directly impact the company' bottom-line.
    Many transferable skill sets can be acquired.

    Cons

    This is a fast-paced, demanding business. Expect to put in lots of time to be effective. You'll need to be flexible to be successful here.

    Pros

    Lots of perks, free snacks, drinks, work from home, great people in the offices who are motivated and smart.

    Cons

    Working at Channel Intelligence has been interesting, the leadership and communication on my team is non-existent, leadership at higher levels while improving still hasn’t made its way down the ranks. Its still the status “Quo” mantra and is most frustrating to come to work where you know you have a lot to offer but, with no communication and level of expectations your contributions will never be exposed or valued. There is no communicated strategic vision of where the company is heading, nor any communication as to what is expected of you; daily, short term, long terms goals. The system used are developed in-house that are often times broken and filled with bugs. While this company has a lot to offer I feel the lack of competent leadership with the ability to lead, and communicate effectively will ultimately create high turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate expectations, take the time to lead / train your team, deliver on promises made before employees become disgruntled, utilize the talents and knowledge of the individuals your hired, and push your team to excel, the status quo is unacceptable. This is a technology company use the power of technology to expand the capabilities of your team to be more effective, efficient.

    Pros

    Some quality people here and there.
    Winters are amazing. Work can be thought provoking.

    Cons

    Unethical, revisionist, disloyal, political, hubris especially the C-Suite. CEO, CTO, CFO, SVP of Sales, Senior Vice President of Commerce for MyList, CPO generally do not get along with each other. Ethical people are walked over and chastised publicly. Too many quality people let go, too many of wrong people let stay.

    Advice to Management

    Investors need to clean house
