Pros

It is a great company to work for. The company has great leadership and very intelligent engineers building out our product offering.

Cons

We have the same growing pains as any start up company. Often times you find yourself being the first person to knock down walls because that issue simply hasn't come up before.

    Pros

    Nice working environment (NYC Office). Smart and ambitious tech and sales staff. Free snacks and lunch in the Virginia headquarters. Free snacks in the NYC office.

    Cons

    Goals and focus of "the Add This" "sharing" and "data-mining" product changed from month to month so it was hard to "sell" the benefits of this "free" product to publishers because it collects publisher's data without any revenue sharing. Competition intense from "Share This" "Meebo" and other similar products. Very strong pressure to sell/perform. Smart sales and tech teams but other management less than stellar. Very "cliquey" environment with management aloof to suggestions from seasoned professionals who were not in the "in crowd." Much top management turnover. Real grunt work for many low-level engineers.

    Advice to Management

    The management team has turned over since I left the company (Ramsey McGrory was CEO) so I don't have a sense of their current strengths and weaknesses.
