    I worked at Ziff Davis Media full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent Mentor, health benefits, gym reimbursement (limited),

    Cons

    The whole "Perception is reality" thing, where you always had to seem busy, no one believed in efficient work, lied about a raise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting so much time trying to force everyone to pretend to be busy, focus on where we can find efficiency and give that time to the employees, they would be a lot more willing to go the extra mile

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Great schedule, easy job, little supervision, competitive salary and compensation, great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Startup that got bought by a bigger, small company. Management growth is making early mistakes and going through growing pains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More performance feedback and clear explanation of goals and future initiatives.
