Pros

It's a great place to work due to the somewhat diverse and relaxed culture. The Santa Monica office is sandwiched between the 3rd Street Promenade and the beach.

Cons

Meetings can be unproductive. The growth of the company has changed its culture from what it was a year or more ago in a negative way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keeping a relaxed culture yet being successful is very attractractive to talented people. If the company loses that then trouble awaits you.

    Pros

    Arranging for time off never a problem. Lots of great people.

    Cons

    Extremely poor senior management. No defined company direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and focus on it. There cannot be 15 simultaneous projects that are unrelated. There's no company that will buy Demand because no one needs 20 mediocre projects. You could sell ehow, and that's about it.

    Pros

    They pay pretty well. They are pretty cutting edge technology wise. You'll have lots of chances to work on big projects with the newest stuff. Training/Professional development is good.

    Cons

    Its a company with no real purpose. Every few months theres some new thing that we're "all about" and is going to make tons of money. Of course none of it ever works out. Its like the idea is throw things at the wall and see what sticks. Very old school dot-com feel.

    I honestly can't see myself here more than the immediate next year or two. Mostly because everything is so in flux all the time, and whatever the big thing thats going to explode and be our flagship deal changes so much. Who knows what this company will be doing by then?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't need any more damn layers of management.

    No opinion of CEO
