    Pros

    I don't really have anything positive to say about this company. Other than I put my 40 hours in and leave.

    Cons

    This company only cares about cutting cost and putting more dollars in their pocket. There isn't a 401k match. Their leadership team is full of a bunch of yes men who aren't interested in fixing problems. This place is full of small thinkers who will stifle your creativity. I wouldn't recommend working here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your people like they're expendable. Put some money into advertising.

    Pros

    -No dress code
    -Freeway-centric location
    -Lots of on-the-job training
    -Semi-flexible scheduling and some legit work-from-home opportunities

    Cons

    -No raises. EVER. I worked there nearly 7 years and never got a raise; eventually my dept supervisors just stopped doing yearly performance reviews because they knew no one would ever approve raises, even though our department's earnings were through the roof.

    -You will get pigeonholed into doing 1 or 2 things for your entire tenure. No opportunity for raises or promotions. They will also make you feel like you are horrible at your job, as much as possible, in the hopes that you'll shrink into your desk chair and just become a wage slave for them for all time.

    -They truly do not care about their people. Low raises + no opportunity for growth + mean upper management = insanely high turnover. HR would occasionally hand out popsicles or hot dogs as a "we appreciate you" gesture - gee. A 25 cent hot dog. I feel so loved.

    -A very reactive, not proactive, approach to management - whenever Google would come out with new search analytics/metrics, management would have us all scrambling to keep up, despite the changes being announced months prior, and of course we'd lose money. They also refused to come up with mobile apps for our sites (which is easy to do these days), putting us so far behind our competitors it was laughable.

    -I finally quit after I was offered what amounted to a demotion and pay cut, and informed that if I took that job, they'd fire someone else to "give" me the "privilege" of a spot. NO. No no no. I couldn't do that. So, for the first time ever, I quit with no safety net.

    Advice to Management

    -Start being proactive, not reactive, to changes in technology and markets. Develop apps.

    -Start giving raises again. You've lost a lot of really, REALLY good, experienced people in favor of paying tiny salaries to total greenhorns who don't know what they're doing.

    Pros

    My commute has been a breeze, I'm always able to get the time off I need. Ping pong table, and the view of the ocean from my side of the building is amazing. Many employees move between roles, with constant acquisitions there are always new opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay is definitely low. There is also a disconnect between the executives way of viewing the world (ie how they got to where they are) vs. what the path (and salary expectations) actually are.

    Advice to Management

    Accept that requiring a certain minimum tenure will cause you to miss out on great candidates. Low pay and no bonus structure is going to hurt employee retention.
