    Pros

    You can learn a lot here as long as you're prepared to put up with a difficult work culture.

    Cons

    Lots of jockeying for position and uncertainty. Layoffs are guaranteed every few months. Go there if you're proactive about managing your career. And use the experience to find a better opportunity at a more stable company.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck. The culture wasn't great here from the get-go with Steve Case. And it's only gotten worse with each passing owner. If you truly want to succeed, then you should do away with the terrible culture and start anew. Try to minimize layoffs to increase stability, hire the best and then keep those brilliant minds by treating people as your most valuable asset.
