Pros

Great work life balance. Fun people to work with and for.

Cons

You're very limited to your job role and cannot really expand efforts to grow.

Advice to Management

If you have good people working for you, give them more then the bare minimum of work to do.

    Surreal. It's like an alternate universe with its own logic.

    Pros

    Some of the HR people are nice.
    Most people are nice.
    It's a strong business model, reasonably well executed.

    Cons

    It's all about the CEO, his views, his happiness and people having to say he's right.
    It's not much fun for a fun business.
    Atmosphere is stifling.
    People are nervous about their job security.
    Overall communication is poor.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO is very smart in IQ, but exhibits a low E.I.Q. Some self-examination would be helpful.

    Just imagine a place where bad managers go after being fired everywhere else...

    Pros

    Equality of misery. Everyone below CxO or SVP is in misery, so you'll have plenty of company in your suffering.

    Cons

    Simply put, one of the worst places to work in the media industry. Freelance workers are reported as full time employees so company can count the tax break. Is that legal?

    Advice to Management

    God doesn't like ugly.
