Pros

Awesome campus, free parking, great cafeteria. Dressing casual everyday was a bonus.

The company's future is unknown, so there is a sense of uncertainty.

    Pros

    Many are able to work remotely.

    Cons

    Upper management is concerned only with feathering their own nests. They promote people who buy into the vision of "there are no problems, give me a big bonus."

    Advice to Management

    Sorry, a head to toe clear out of the dead wood you promoted and bring back the workers and contractors that you "downsized".

    Pros

    It was a great place for growing and championing new ideas. The teams I worked on were highly collaborative, and the people I worked with were brilliant.

    Cons

    Too many of the legacy employees (those there pre-2000), were entrenched in old-school thinking and were more interested in playing politics in-order to "avoid rocking the boat."

    Advice to Management

    You're current strategy will work in the short-term, but your reliance on display advertising will ultimately be your undoing.
