    Pros

    Incredibly relaxed office (no dress code), good pay and benefits, plus funny and brilliant coworkers. I loved going into work every day and being on a team with such wonderful, generous people.

    Cons

    Appealing to the whims and unrealistic goals of parent company NBCU, the slow trickle of information from senior management to the rest of the company, and inability to hire more support for the staff.

    Pros

    Loved 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.

    Cons

    Took 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There could be more communication between departments. I felt like i got to know a lot of people within my own department but I didn't get to know others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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