I have been working at Demand Media full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great location and people, fun place to work. You have plenty of opportunities to explore different career paths. It's a growing company that has battled through a lot of bad press and is coming out on top. Good mix of new employees and "veterans."

Cons

Compensation is not great, but benefits are good.
