    Great co-workers, but top-down culture with a dash of micromanagement

    Pros

    * The promise of working for an Internet company attracts talented people
    * Most co-workers are great -- they have a strong work ethic and are competent team players
    * Stable company with good work facilities
    * Good marketing and branding

    Cons

    * Limited career and salary growth – company growth is from acquisitions
    * Top-down and directive senior management has blind spots
    * Micromanagement is a drain and results in turnover
    * Crushing workload can intrude on personal life and health

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just say "no" to micromanagement. Place more value on managers who have the experience and social intelligence to set a realistic workload standard and build trust.

    Try opening up a few key decisions to healthy debate at all levels of the organization before solidifying those decisions. It will uncover blind spots and new solutions you didn't consider.
