    Pros

    There are lots of writing opportunities on this site, given that you have an interest in them. The editors are all very cooperative and willing to give you constructive criticism your first few articles.

    Cons

    genres of articles are limited. it took me awhile to find my niche on this site. If you want to write women's articles for example, few and far between. The format it also difficult to undertake and adjust to at first.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, i wish there were more women's article topics available to work with. Right now, the selection is very limited.

    Pros

    The business plan is innovative. There's some really smart, talented people especially in R&D.
    A lot of positivity surround the culture.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. manager, senior manager, director, senior director, VP, SVP, EVP. It seems like an awfully young company to have so many layers of management.

    Advice to Management

    You shouldn't read your own press. I think we are often too impressed with our product and story and should be more open to seeing issues for improvement.
