It's a good place, just don't get too attached.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Carpinteria, CA

Pros• Working with intelligent, competent, wonderful people
• Great benefits for the entire family
• High value on quality of workmanship, whether it is an email send or a video production
• Location. You can take your lunch to the beach and get away from the computer screen.
• Lots of executive reviews give you good practice at presenting to stakeholders and staying non-attached to your work.
• It's intrinsically rewarding to work for a company that is all about helping people to become better at what they do. I was always proud of the product. That can help a lot of little things slough off.

ConsThere is a culture of fear—really great people seem to be let go without warning, which can make you a bit jumpy.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think we were all more competent than we were allowed/encouraged to be.
