Disaster

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Waltham, MA

I have been working at NameMedia

ProsPerks - 100% Health Care Coverage, Company Events, Snacks/Beer/Wine.
Compensation is fair, IF you negotiate on the way in.

ConsNo direction.
No hopes of stock options ever being worth it.
The innovators are gone - either by layoffs or smart enough to leave on their own.
Once economy rebounds, the place will empty.

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to the people who DO the work, and don't just constantly tell them what they are doing wrong. If you were so smart, you would be public and wouldn't need to change your strategy every 6 months.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Progressive company that tries its best to be what you want in an employer

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Newton, MA

I worked at NameMedia

ProsSome nice, genuine people here. The company is very progressive which is likely typical in this industry. The office is nice, they have many company outings and perks to show they appreciate your hard work. They are flexible in many ways. You will likely learn a lot simply by being surrounded by some very smart people who have spent time in the industry and have some solid knowledge.

ConsMany people feel overworked and employees may expect to occasionally take work home with them, depending on the dept. There is constant change because they are a young company and maybe in over their heads in some ways, so you you have to be on your toes and expect changing job responsibilities. There is nothing wrong with hard work, but there should be some clearly defined objectives, expectations and training for the work. They also conduct more unnecessary conference calls than the average company. As with any place- there are a few bottom dwellers who will do what they can to keep their job and move up.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou could save some jobs there if you cut back on the wasteful spending in the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
