    Pros

    Freedom of expression. Creative licence. Great people.

    Cons

    Lack of cohesive leadership. Upper management has a hard time relating to workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make deals with the Devil. Focus on what makes Ziff great, not on the company stock price.

    Pros

    Good place for young people to work to find out how media really works. Some good content, mainly reviews. Top notch analyst team.

    Cons

    Lots of editorial is basically content farm stuff, very SEO driven. Tech of the site is years behind competitors. Site does not put readers first, and it shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Site needs to be rethought from top to bottom. Way too much clutter. Rethink or scrap content farm stuff. Switch to different CMS.
