    Pros

    Face paced company with some opportunity if you search for it. The people are a great bunch to work with.

    Cons

    Moving towards a very structured company. Moral was on the decline, with high turnover. Options became worthless. Not a typical online firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer more opportunity with counseling, a chance to cross function with other departments. Transparency was poor which made moral decline.

    Pros

    They are a stable profitable dot com. They have a great laid back work environment. Morale is good.

    Cons

    About doesn't take risks, the business is overly focused on its core competencies not on innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest time in innovation, the talent is there, it's a missed opportunity.
