    Pros

    Great products, great colleagues, interesting work. Still have the chance to be great. New news company creates an oportunity for change.

    Cons

    Hostile and suspicion-filled atmosphere and culture fostered by senior management. Little to no change for advancement. Products in decline due to NewsCorp influence - no longer the objective bastions they once were. Over-simplistic marketing approach will erode products over time.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink choice of CEO. Seek ways to grow careers and build from within. Let the best people lead the decision process rather than the serial cronyism that has been the recent history

    Pros

    People here are very nice and caring, there is a snack bar, the hours aren't crazy.

    Cons

    As with any huge company, the level of bureaucracy and mismanagement are insane. A real downer when you're trying to get anything interesting done.

    Advice to Management

    You hired us for a reason, let us do our jobs.
