I worked at Demand Media full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of hands-on experience. If you work hard and are smart you will be given a lot of responsibility and trust. They give people opportunity to move around when/if you want. Frequently hire interns for full time positions after graduation. Fun place to work, young and innovative environment. Overall the people within the company are smart, talented, hardworking and fun to work with. Some teams, however, are definitely better than others.

Cons

Management needs training, they do a poor job of fostering talent. No mentorship whatsoever. Very young and at times immature workplace. Lots of drinking/partying, so if you have problems with that, this might not be the place for you. Salary range wavers person-by-person and compensation is rarely fair. If you want to grow you have to be aggressive and proactive about it. They will, however, pay for classes and conferences.

Advice to Management

Mentorship program. Management training.

    I have been working at Demand Media full-time (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.
