Pros

Overall the company is filled with hard working individuals who are great at their jobs. However, the executive team and upper management are disorganized and only concerned about the bottom line. The company has the potential to make great products but they are more concerned with tricking their customer base and making sub-par products as quickly as possible.

Cons

The executive and management team want to create products that do not work, are designed with technologies and UIs from the 90s and want it all done "yesterday." Working throughout the company-it was all disorganized and ran by individuals with little expertise and knowledge. Directors may have been working for 5 years and lead whole product and business groups...how does that work?

There is rarely any room the advance, and if you do the only thing that changes is your title and you work longer hours. Expect to take a $10,000 pay cut and bonuses average to 1-2% and are not given on what you provided to the company but more on favoritism. So if you are not in the "boys" club there is no room for advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create products that users actually want and need. Hire experienced employees and not newly graduated individuals. Your sub-standard products and "advertising" that is more trickery say a lot about the company. Clean up your image and more people would want to actually work there.

Most importantly, pay your employees industry standard salaries and they'll stay longer than a year.

    Fast paced, highly profitable business. Highly competent executive management staff.

    Pros

    Super entrepreneurial environment and growing fast. Management definitely gives you the resources to succeed and values smart, creative people. Leader in the space by far.

    Cons

    If you like micromanaging its not the place for you. Definitely an environment that you need to create your own destiny within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have more company meetings and bring people up to speed on the overall vision, more internal communication is needed too in general.
