I worked at Nook Media full-time for less than a year

Pros

The people at Nook are smart and hard-working, and a lot of fun to work with.

Cons

There seems to be no clear business strategy or vision from the management, or at least it is not clearly communicated to the teams, and many employees end up working very hard but not very smart which can lead to frustration. Lots of politics, design by committee, and not enough decision-making.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share your vision, strategy and product roadmap with your employees to get them committed and excited about delivering great products.
