    Pros

    Work is actually very challenging. Managers are good and coworkers are reasonably competent

    Cons

    Company is on the way down and you can feel the desperation in the executives. Work is piled up in a desperate move to stop the decline. The worst part is none of the work you do will ever be appreciated by the outside world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better Product managers that have real web industry experience instead of former baristas, wannabe musicians and journalists.

    Once one's role is decided, it is very hard to take on new responsibilities or projects.

    As a social networking site, there should be a company culture that promotes social interaction.
