Pros

Digital River is a great place to work for people that enjoy a fast-paced, high-pressure environment.

Cons

Digital River is definitely a high stress environment. I think this is probably more of a function of the eCommerce industry, rather than Digital River as a company.

Also, Digital River is a highly acquisitive company. Typically the company will acquire a company that has a certain technology or market share, rather than trying to build it on it's own. This can be good in some ways, but often it seems like it makes the people responsible for building Digital River's applications feel like they are not valued.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in building your technology organically, rather than acquiring it.

    Pros

    Constant growth and expansion lead to a lot of career opportunities. The people you work with are great, as is the general environment. It still has the feel of a start up company but is far more mature. There is a solid business model and a cost conscious culture which leads to great profitability. The company is a world leader in the industry and has a very solid acquisition strategy. Recent decisions to invest in the company itself proves that the snerior leadership team is trying to build for the long haul and not just focusing on increasing profits quarter over quarter.

    Cons

    Long hours. Long turn times for project completion. Lack of communication from senior leadership. The company is maturing and going through some common growing pains which in turn can be very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people in the trenches.

    Pros

    Dynamic, exciting place to work. Global...but with a feeling of family. You really have to be a special type of person to survive and thrive at DR.

    Cons

    DR moves very fast. Sometimes a change happens and it happens faster than the communication can happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more consistency. What is wrong for one person should be also wrong for others.
