    Pros

    Nice people, change to learn a lot about a huge ad network, performance based campaigns, a large variety of clients and a multitude of websites

    Cons

    There is constant change and little sense of security. They've done massive layoffs (they did deal with people honorably for the most part). Senior management has also had a great deal of turnover. There seems quite a bit of a "see if it sticks" mentality with new policies, acquisitions and
    procedures which adds to the feeling of uncertainty

    Very flexible with no strict vacation/sick leave, however no real growth opportunities.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, lax on sick/vacation leave, laid back atmosphere, as long as you get your work done you can pretty much come and go as you please, fun happy hours and activities, gym.

    Cons

    The work never ends, barely ever raises/promotions, communication issues because of the two difference offices (NYC and Dulles), lay offs ALL the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to receive credit on projects. The editors always get all the credit because they provide the content. However, so many people work on the project that don't ever feel the love.
