    Pros

    They treat their employees well, decent salary, great benefits and a lot of room for growth within the company. The offices were nice, and clean and had good maintenance. Good IT department, and up to date equipment.

    Cons

    It's a platform/company that is constantly playing catch-up, and after multiple attempts to reinvent themselves, the outlook for the site to regain a positive reputation in the industry is highly unlikely.

    fun environment, daily lunch stipend

    the product has been consistently shodding over the course of at least 3 relaunches. multiple management changes and opinions made gaining any valuable traction nearly impossible

    clear out your top level "executives" and hire some people who have actual experience.

    Strong software development team; very interesting projects; cool environment; open minded people who shared knowledge and experience. Transparent management who had excellent communication with all employees. Very good product managers and middle level management.
