I worked at Demand Media

Pros

* Enthusiasm for projects and initiatives
* Good place to work hard
* Public stock options
* Still some fun to be had

Cons

There's management bias towards the "old guard", people who have been together since the Myspace and NetZero days. It's hard to break into that pool, and ideas that come from within that circle are much more likely to be respected than ideas from outside that circle.

Working long days is expected. You can always hire someone to have a life for you, right?
