    I worked at Digital River full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Beer Friday, Dog Day

    Cons

    The company does layoffs every year, you know its coming and the employees spend months worrying if they are next. Sometimes they even do multiple layoffs in a year. No job stability here.

    Advice to Management

    Yearly layoffs is not a good business practice. If the company was operating effectively there wouldn't be a need to layoff employees. Because of the constant layoffs you loose good employees who don't feel secure in their job.

    Pros

    Newer technologies Support of open source Nice facilities - work out room, walking trails Dog days and beer Friday was great. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Arrogant tech people - Not agreeing with them means you're wrong. No middle ground. Management encourages arguments between team members to stimulate "creative thinking" No one knows how to implement the technology they're working on. No direction from any level of management. Absolutely no respect or business manners from directors down. Swearing, personal insults and putting people down is commonplace. Had a :"Sensitivity Training" group come in to try and curb complaints - didn't do a thing - employees basically ran them off without one thing taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    You can't build technology for technology's sake - there has to be a business driver and therefore there needs to be clear direction, goals and timelines defined. Get control of your employees. We all like to have fun while at work but there's no room for insults, arrogance and single mindedness. That arrogance has proven itself time and time again to be detrimental to the organization - Things like major SAN outages, load balancing problems, backup issues and disjointed architectures are proof that you need a business and team approach in delivering innovation, not someone who did something in his basement and it looked cool.
