I worked at O'Reilly Media full-time

ProsSmart co-workers, freedom to experiment, and willing to depart from the status quo made my time at ORM enjoyable. Senior management was also very gracious with paid time off around the holiday season, which made for well rested employees when the new year rolled around.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your employees to do what they do best.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Several promising initiatives have been started, given "full support" by the steering… Advice to Senior Management: Find a strategy--any strategy--you can support for more than 90 days and stick with it long enough to see if it works. If you find… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
