    I worked at NameMedia as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great analytical minds. Web properties are all about today's numbers.

    Cons

    Little knowledge or desire to apply solid, fundamental design principles to increase the value of web properties. It's the equivalent of buying a broken down house in a great neighborhood, and doing nothing more than updating the curtains and doing better advertising.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It can be so much more, but the numbers people (while great at what they do) need to be less myopic and superficial. The leadership doesn't even see this blind spot. And it is huge.
