    Pros

    Some undervalued talented people, who deserve better. Casual dress code. Decent benefits, for the most part, that's changing with what they're doing to the vacation policy.

    Cons

    When John Giuliani speaks of the business, it's clear he's not thinking of the other facets of his company, he's interested in re-telling and highlighting the Dotomi story. Employees of other divisions are concerned about how a company their parent company bought could have staged a takeover of their own and seem to be completely in charge.

    A new vacation policy is going into effect for 2014, employees won't accrue days anymore, you just request from your manager time off and you take it. It's supposed to sounds like a hip and cool perk, in reality it saves the company money on it's balance sheet by not counting it as an employee pay expense and they're counting on employees not realizing how few days they're actually taking off. They forcing employees to take their 2013 accrued time off now so they don't have to pay them out at the end of the year! They're willing to take less productivity in the 4th quarter over having to pay a few employees a check for their unused days. Nobody should have to be told what to do with their vacation days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the GM of the ValueClick Media Division. How many quarters does it take for one to not set realistic goals and hit them for that person to lose their job. The Media division doesn't need a hundred cheap sub-par salespeople, take that money and hire several great salespeople with connections that understand the business. Spend the money on engineers to build great products and have sales push those instead of always playing catch up with half finished solutions that only suit one or two clients that never fully deliver the dollars promised by sales.

    Pros

    Wear jeans, free coffee and tea, some great people, work regular hours

    Lack of transparency, more concerned about the clock than the results, most of decisions made in Chicago

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that you have untapped talent, and many locations and products to leverage.
