    Pros

    You get to work among the best journalists covering M&A today. A lot of the employees have been there since the beginning--they are dedicated and care about the product-which is evident in through their quality reporting and attention to detail.

    Cons

    Great group of people-no complaints!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to communicate the business strategy to employees and keep the feedback loop open-lots of talent and ideas are floating amongst the employees at all levels.

    Pros

    Friendly and relaxed atmosphere, absolutely no stress if you are able to do a decent job

    Cons

    It seems that everyone is looking to jump ship since the company was acquired by The Street. The Deal's management, while friendly and great to work with, is not able to assure staff that there will be no more layoffs. So far, The Street has laid off personnel from The Deal every September. It also seems to be hiring more freelancers and contributors as opposed to full-time reporters and copy editors. Looks like The Street only bought The Deal for its database and not for the talented reporters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staffers need to know where they stand. You can't lay off people every year and not expect the survivors to seek opportunities elsewhere.

    Pros

    Colleagues that genuinely care about each other is what is holding this company together. Not the bells and whistles.

    Cons

    Management has ignored the strengths and weaknesses of their employees and instead turn to trending features and tools to keep the service alive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the infrastructure of the company -your employees- and the service -the back end systems and software. Otherwise, why bother building a house of cards?

    Pros

    Daily Deal is known as The Deal LLC.

    The benefits package is great
    Off major holidays
    Early leave for three day holiday weekends
    The hours are great

    Cons

    Very low salary, no communication among co-workers, low morale, few perks, supervisors are very rude and disrespectful and not diverse at all. Unprofessional work environment and very high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Editors, please stop cursing when speaking to your employees. Instead of emailing everything, face-to-face contact would be ideal. Have reviews and opportunities for growth.

    Pros

    A great bunch of people work at The Deal LLC. There is also a great balance of work and personal life. Its a small company so you can end up taking on some projects you didn't expect to.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity to advance at The Deal LLC. There are people here who have been doing the same mindless activity for almost 10 years. Employees at The Deal LLC are extremely underpaid and overworked. Only sales reps and executives get bonuses. There is a strong emphasis placed on upper management...they are the only ones getting the perks. There haven't been promotions or reviews here in one and a half years. If you come to work here, expect to get paid the same about untill you leave. The work here is not challenging. HR department is biased towards its favorites. Editors are always complaining about something. The editorial and business side do not speak to each other very much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Deal LLC needs to treat its employees more fairly and offer opporunitites for growth. There needs to be more communication between executives and their staff.
