    Good learning experience, but management not interested in too much change

    Junior Web Project Manager (Former Employee) El Segundo, CA

    Pros- Good work-life balance
    - High levels of autonomy, little micromanagement
    - Opportunity to learn about and be exposed to many different technical systems
    - People and location are nice

    Cons- Little opportunity to advance from junior positions
    - Under-resourced on tech and CS for number of sites maintained
    - Virtually all sites are on very legacy systems
    - Very hard to implement any real changes to legacy sites; business is more interested in acquiring more niche websites than improving/expanding ones it already owns.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow some of your sites some TLC and get them up to standards- it might prove more profitable than continuing to acquire and spreading your resources so thin.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Managment is a freakshow

    Advice to Senior ManagementCan't be helped.

    Friendly People, Relaxed Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Smart people
    - Laid back culture
    - Ping pong and Ultimate Frisbee groups
    - Great location overlooking the Pacific
    - Lots of group gatherings
    - You get a ton of responsibility
    - Ability to make decisions
    - Very little micromanaging
    - Casual dress
    - Friendly people

    Cons- Below market pay

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat job overall in making tons of money. You are obviously doing many things right; however, if you are not going to fully support the growth of a particular vertical or brand, don't acquire it.
