    Pros

    Small enough company to know who your boss's boss , but is large enough to have the power to get things done. A great end of year bonus was received in each of my four years there.

    Cons

    We had quite a bit of turnover in our department, including five different heads of the department in four years. Getting laid off sucked too.

    Pros

    Something interesting is always happening and not to mention fun. You get to grow here and be surrounded by people who love their job just as much as they love sports. It's a win win!

    Cons

    Compensation seems to be a bit lower than average specifically because everyone wants to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fun atmosphere.

    Pros

    A near-obsession with ensuring it is staying on the front edge of trends. Smart people everywhere. Crosses many industries and technologies. Appreciated even more when you spend time around other major media, tech and telecoms companies.

    Cons

    Not perfect - no place is. HQ location in semi-rural central CT is tough for many, and without question it does thrive on a culture and people that battle with work-life balance.
