    Great product and some talented business people

    Finance should stick to Finance

    Advice to Management

    You've ignored your future by ignoring Millenials and Gen Z for too long ... Look out for Spotify & Pandora ...

    Pros

    Great working culture. Managers are intelligent and open to new ideas. Free coffee, soda and pretzels.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is not great. Depending on the department you work for, expect mediocre co-workers, doing mediocre/rushed work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on numbers and more on quality.

    Pros

    Glad to have worked with a several talented people.

    Cons

    IT has clearly always been seen as a cost here, and although I am not complaining about the reality of it, this fact just shows too much in the general attitude of the management, and in the morale of the tech folks due to the inequality of working conditions, training opportunities, and lack of transparency in incentives, between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Have a vision, show confidence in your leadership and follow through with optimistic changes.

    Pros

    As long as you do your work no one bothers you. You get a free radio account. Free soda, coffee, tea, and pretzels. You get to see celebrities.

    Cons

    It's hard to get a decent raise or promotion, in which case, it's more about who you know not what you know. People hardly talk to each other. You pay a lot for health benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Promote from within. Recognize outstanding employees for their contributions to the company. Offer work from home options.


  9. Great, laid-back place!

    Pros

    People are very friendly, you can see various celebrities walking through the hall, the location and building are both good plus they just renovated.

    Cons

    It is very hard to move up in the company. Most people just stay in one position and don't move anywhere. There are exceptions but not many.

    Advice to Management

    Should look to hire employees from within for better positions. Give feedback to employees if they are doing a good or bad job, don't just tell people what they want to hear.

    Pros

    I've worked at the with trends across multiple offices, and I've found that nearly everyone is both competent in there job and personable.

    Cons

    There is little room for growth. In most departments the company is kept sort of employees and full of work. There is never a slow day.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to create real opportunities for growth. Promoting in place doesn't full anyone. Your policy on bonuses and stock awards is great, at times it has been the reason that I start with the company.
