Pros

Location, Location, Location, Location, Location. They also will pay well and reward theor own but not the the new employees.

Cons

Arrogant, condescending, immature and emotional leadership - CEO & COO drop F-Bombs all day long and on company-wide calls and meetings.

Advice to Management

Grow up and add some mature, experienced leadership, drop the dead weighting Focus on strategy and not the pseudo famous.

    Pros

    Used to be a more fun environment, but things have gone downhill since the purchase of Myspace. There is promoting from within, but more out of immediate necessity than actual recognition of an employee's hard work. Good entry level positions to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Less appreciation of employees than ever and lowest overall morale in office. Seen high turnover at HQ in past 6 months. All jobs here are thankless- You will only be recognized when you do something wrong or make a mistake. Reviews are impossible to schedule and raises are hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting from within is great if you have the talent to do so. Placing unqualified people in management positions just because they have tenure is not benefiting the organization and in fact, turning many employees off. Try valuing those who do the most work, not just the ones who butter up management.

    Pros

    Great people, very welcoming, happy to have you there. Great training program, fosters a motivated work environment. Helpful co-workers that take the time to help you out when needed. You really hit the ground running here. Weekly deliveries of food to the kitchen - light snacks, small salads, all kinds of drinks, Starbucks coffee maker that fresh grinds the beans. Awesome 100% employer paid benefits, dental, vision, PPO/HMO, life insurance, 401(k) option.

    Cons

    If I think of any in the next few weeks I'll let 'ya know.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, keep promoting within!
