Pros

It's a growing company, and the people are pretty smart. You get an amazing view of what's going on on the internet, which will allow you to spout out all kinds of interesting data tidbits at cocktail parties.

Cons

The pay was terrible and there was no way I could get what I was worth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I sort of felt like everyone who wasn't a VP was like chattel. A lot of people had great ideas on how to improve the product, but it seemed like product development was in its own ivory tower.

    Awful Product- The Data is so inaccurate, businesses should not be making decisions with it!

    I worked at Hitwise full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    work life balance but was underpaid, work from home.
    nice office in cyberjaya.good biweekly meals.

    Cons

    pretentious middle management , badly managed and under appreciated employee. relying on fresh turnout as mention on the below. product isnt great and cant sell when google analytic is free with google owns the web. customer doesnt renew.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    most recent UI changes are meaningless if you cant present you data in a meaningful way. clearly show on the non renewal and lack of usage. product and project manager just just chicken whom talks over the phone.. no value for the dev and qa
    all the pro doesnt mean jack when all you do is exploitation of new blood. oh yeah. work from home is abused regularly as well.
