I worked at Jupitermedia

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.

    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.
