    I worked at NameMedia full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at NameMedia

    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.

  5. It's a numbers game

    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I worked at NameMedia as a contractor (more than a 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.
