Pros

A culture of promoting entry-level employees in Customer Service to higher positions. Management recently did first offsite training seminar in 14 years.

Cons

Longtime corporate culture of mutual distrust and suspicion between management and staff. Huge staff turnover and low morale. Impetuous and rushed product development based on imitation, never innovation. Sites riddled with buggy spaghetti code. Tried for IPO several times but could never raise enough investment for an offering. Almost no telecommuting allowed. Middle and upper management frequently has little or no training nor experience elsewhere. Serious allegations of compromised H&R department. Numerous security cameras due to theft of company property and coworkers' property. Mediocre health plan.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire the best management consulting firm, ask them how to fix the dysfunctional environment and structure, and implement everything they say.

    Pros

    Free accounts to all sites, but they don't work too well, so is this really a good perk? Frankly, there are no good reasons to work here other than potentially finding other fun and interesting people that are not your supervisors.

    Cons

    Management is incompetent, they have no idea how to run a company that makes this much money. Budgetary concerns often get in the way despite there being no reason for such action to be taken. Management is focuses on satisfying just enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get reviews from your employees, then perhaps you will open your eyes to how bad and unhappy people are.
