    Good company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at FierceMarkets

    Pros

    They worship profit. Scrooge could learn a lesson or two.

    Cons

    High volume minimizes in-depth reporting.

    Very mixed bag

    I have been working at FierceMarkets full-time

    Pros

    If you are in the right department (vertical), you can have a very positive experience.

    Cons

    If you choose the wrong publication to write for, you will be in trouble. One vertical in particular has a lot of problems. Success is not based on how well one does one's job, but how well one flatters the head of that vertical--stokes this person's ego. The company has a lot of potential--why does it waste it on a certain "leader" who's all talk/bluster and little action?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the heads of the verticals and don't allow yourselves to be influenced by bluster and fast talk.

    I worked at FierceMarkets

    Pros

    Smart, aggressive people who are generally very good at their jobs. Opportunity for advancement is there if you work hard.

    Cons

    Good health insurance but otherwise very weak benefits. (Only two weeks of combined vacation/sick time in total!) Arrogant attitude among middle and senior managers despite textbook management "happy talk."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase vacation benefits if you haven't already!

    I have been working at FierceMarkets full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great prospects for extremely talented people. Liberal office culture that works for those who are self motivated to make the most of their position. You get to learn a lot of things and touch lots of systems.

    Cons

    Many in leadership are completely in over their heads. Their excuse on being so terrible has to do with their corporate "shareholder" who strangles this once great company. Learned helplessness. The ones in leadership who actually work hard for their employees end up demoralized too, which hurts the rank and file. Too many personal relationships that trump accountability. Often feels like one must be sneaky to get something accomplished.

    Very bad IT and operations leadership. Lots of great people in the department who scratch their heads at the micromanagement of lack of trust given to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop relying on personal relationships as a management technique. Employees can see right through it.
