    Fun Office and Great People!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsLoved my coworkers: Everyone was friendly, creative, and collaborative. Casual workplace environment (dogs welcomed!), no dress code, flexible summer Fridays schedule, good benefits from parent company NBCU.

    ConsTook years for a lot of people to get promoted. There were a lot of contractors who had to leave after a year because of legal reasons, and we had to continually hire and train more people rather than investing in the people who were already there.

    Great brand, but heading downhill

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood people, work-life balance, relaxed office culture, strong networks and relationships between employees

    It was a stepping stone

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsA lot of energy
    Good name to put on your resume
    Snacks and more
    Part of NBC Universal
    Dog friendly

    ConsLack of support in some departments
    Miscommunication
    A lot of changes, not sure if they are effective
    Revolving door of employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open to out of the box ideas. If there is going to be change, it should be for the better. Should take advantage of what is out there. Making connections with employees is great but pushing for stronger content is key.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The best group of people I've encountered in my life.

    Production Intern (Former Employee)

    It's an incredible and fun atmosphere to work in

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe office and people are amazing. I learned a lot about the company and our competitors. Plus, they have awesome benefits

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think the leadership at DailyCandy is fantastic. I received a lot of feedback on stuff that I was doing right and wrong.

    Great people, great product, bad communication and an unbalanced work/personal life.

    Ad Traffic Coordinator (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat work atmosphere, wonderful people, well respected product, decent pay and benefits.

    ConsHorrible communication between senior management and the rest of the company, change moves down the line at a glacier's pace, in certain departments opportunities for advancement are erratic at best and non-existent at worst, and management is slow to hire to meet growing demand overloading existing workforce. Bad balance between work and personal life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide your employees with more freedom to bring positive change to the company. If you're going to overload a department to the point that they're working 12 hour days then adjust your expectations regarding the quality of that work or staff up the department.
