Pros

Great place if you put effort into it

Cons

Bad place for you if you can not produce

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look past what is on paper about the people you hire. Most of the time they hire one who looks good on paper but has no clue of the industry.

    Pros

    Reasonable benefits.
    Fine for entry level, but not long term.

    Cons

    Low salaries and poor raises. They do not value their employees.

    They do not understand the life cycle of technology products or how to plan for the creation/evolution of the "next" product. Shortsighted; habitually rush inferior products to market. They would prefer to sell a poor product to 10 people for a nickel today rather than invest time and money in a quality product that will sell for $10 in 6 months to 100 people that will be lined up waiting for the product.

    Too many managers and not enough workers. Cronyism runs rampant in upper management. If one makes a bad decisions and/or wastes company funds, rather than getting fired or demoted, they get a lateral transfer or even a promotion.

    There are many companies that fall under the DE umbrella, and not all of those companies appear to be managed this poorly. Many of the former print companies successfully converted to web based businesses. I cannot speak to how well they are managed or how well they treat their employees. I am only familiar with companies that began as tech companies. There are many good people at DE including many in middle management. Unfortunately, they are not the ones making the important decisions.

    I have tried to keep my evaluation as unbiased as possible, but this is, after all, my opinion. However, having discussed these topics on more than one occasion with multiple people, I can assure anyone that my opinions are shared by many current and former employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managing a print or web based company that sells monthly or weekly ads does not give you the necessary background to manage a truly technological company. Hire someone at the executive level with proven technological experience in taking a product from inception through its life cycle while planning the replacement product and its evolution.

    Get paid less to work for a company that lacks innovation and vision

    Pros

    All I can say; meh.

    Cons

    Management is a club, either you are in it, or not. If not, then good luck. Innovation and ideas are not valued as much as sports fandom. If you do find yourself working there, use the job as a platform to find work that pays better elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, they would have to be listening first.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
