Pros

Great co-workers made it enjoyable. There was a real sense of team effort and it's nice when you enjoy their company outside of work.

Cons

Medical benefits were not great. Very small raises and not great opportunities for advancement from within. Upper management out of touch with employees.

    Pros

    Overall, the company offered excellent benefits and a quality work environment (nice offices, convenient locations, etc.). The people were probably the best benefit, since I had the opportunity to work with some very talented technologists who seemed to truely care about the quality of work they performed.

    Cons

    Despite some stellar exceptions, there were members of senior management who were so far removed from understanding the technical areas they supervisedthat it became an obstacle to success (i.e. enforcing antiquated methodologies or having no understanding or exposure to modern practices and tools).

    If your responsibility is to provide technical direction for a large part of the organization, you need to be a technologist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand and appreciate the capabilities of your people. Hire management that understands how to mentor and grow individuals vs. seeing them as generic resources that can be easily outsourced or replaced.

    Great to be on the cutting edge of the Internet -- back in 2000

    Pros

    Visionary CEO who identified opportunity early and leveraged resources to be ahead of the trends. Even post-tech crash, it was a good time to be at the vanguard of Internet usage and technology adoption.

    Cons

    Layoffs and lack of team cohesion.
