Great Place to Work with Great Benefits!

Visual Designer (Current Employee)
Santa Monica, CA

I have been working at Demand Media full-time for less than a year

ProsBenefits (medical, vision, dental) are great. Stock options available, at least 2 weeks paid vacation, very laid back atmosphere. New building and great team. Free lunch on Friday. Cereal bar with stocked frig. Many team culture events.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is lack appreciation of design.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Demand Media full-time for more than 3 years
