The best of both worlds: reach and resources of a Fortune 500 Co. with the flexibility and environment of a start-up

Interaction Designer (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at Nook Media full-time for more than a year

ProsCreative freedom and almost no corporate politics as well as a non-competitive friendly environment with a positive and proactive approach make it a really nice place to work at

ConsManagement manages a tad too much up, and tends to forget to manage down. Communication could be better.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more with your teams, and put them above all else. Spending most of your time making decisions with higher-ups in a vacuum does not help anyone succeed in the long-run

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
