Pros

Still not that big that you will not have access to senior management. In general I feel people are very friendly and I am happy in general with the personal side of my coworkers.

Cons

The company has high aspirations, but it is eternally understaffed and that doesn't play well.

    Not a place where you can develop your Web Development Knowledge; most projects are very simple to complete

    Pros

    Great Location, Great Work Environment, Decent Salary

    Cons

    PM's with no technical background demanding unrealistic timelines from developers, Developers find better opportunities else where; in the 4 months I was there, I saw developers who built the core framework leave the company for smaller, but more interesting start - up companies.

    Advice to Management

    Developers should be treated alot better, and career progression for Developers should be better structured

    Pros

    Not a lot of pressure
    PTO
    Not micro-managey
    Work-life balance

    Cons

    Insider culture. Those "in" with COO get promoted; those outside much less so.
    Outdated model. The internet has grown up while QS sites have not.
    Don't feel great about what you do -- selling leads to Visa and University of Phoenix
    Not a ton of internet talent. Haven for former mid-level consultants who bring a macro-perspective (and skillset) to a shrinking company.
    Cubicle farm
    No 401K match

    Advice to Management

    Work on your brand. Hire a real PR firm. Bring in a VP of media that can really make compelling content.
