Pros

I believe that Digital River invests in their employees through training and other forms of professional development. I know that I can stay at the same company for a long time and do a variety of things pertaining to my areas of interest.

Cons

It is extremely fast paced - so for some it could be challenging. Also, the upfront training can be scarce at times due to how quickly the company moves. I enjoy it, but starting off was a little rough.

Advice to Management

Invest more in training the employees when they first start. Create an online training center.

    Pros

    The company is driven, smart and exciting.

    Cons

    Previous experience is rarely relevant in such an innovative environment.

    Advice to Management

    There should be less micromanagement, trust the managers that you hire with salaries, promotions and training without the need of personal approval.

    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 Management

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