    I worked at Dragon Media Online full-time

    Pros

    Learned some new skills and the type of company I don't want to be a part of in the future. Also, did have some fun people working there.

    Cons

    Management lacked a sense of direction. Made broad sweeping changes without bringing in key stakeholders. Top management was very exclusive, definitely didn't feel welcome to share ideas. Also, management was last to arrive and first to leave, setting a poor example. Management gave a great initial impression, but it quickly became clear that they weren't that invested in the company's future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. Stop leaving in the middle of the day for "coffee breaks" without including others. Provide better training and empower your employees.

    I worked at Dragon Media Online

    Pros

    *Responsive tech support
    *Young co-workers who nearly melt away all your cynicism
    *No flak if you want to take a decent lunch break to go work out or whatever
    *Support for telecommuting

    Cons

    *Some of the most unqualified drones I've ever met promoted to management
    *Spooky empty desks and offices; an atmosphere of a place which was once full but now is mysteriously reduced by 60%
    *People shouting into speaker phones all the time. Nobody seems to know how to use a handset.
    *Nobody agrees on what the product really is

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're an Internet company, hire people with Internet company experience. If you're a sales company, hire salespeople. Don't try to mix the two, since these are totally different disciplines.
