    Pros

    Flexibility, independence, no pressure, no deadlines, no real work

    Cons

    Mismanaged, bad leadership, lots of egos and misplaced opinions, many people lacking self awareness

    Advice to Management

    Build a culture. Attract better people and focus on growth rather than old businesses that generate revenue for no real reason other than people are desperate for a domain name

    Pros

    I started at NameMedia shortly after graduating from college. I worked hard and absorbed everything that I could. My contributions were openly appreciated and rewarded with praise, new challenges, and mobility (both laterally and upwardly). Senior management had a true open door policy which was greatly appreciated. Co-workers were always fun, social, knowledgeable, and helpful.

    Cons

    The great benefits (food, time-off, etc.) gave a small number of employees a sense of entitlement and was sometimes abused.

    Pros

    While working here I learned a ton and my co-workers and the management team were wonderful. They really know how to have a good time but still work hard to achieve the company goals.

    Cons

    Getting all the departments on the same page to prioritize a scope of work. Occasionally there seemed to sometimes be a little miscommunication about the priorities to achieve certain goals.
