    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Nice Perks
    High Energy
    Hire from within

    Cons

    This was Pre-Ted Leonsis

    Horrible Office Politics (it was like being in high school)
    Top Execs played favorites
    Hired under qualified candidates over qualified candidates for "personal" reasons
    Horrible and malicious office gossip
    Allowed a few bad apples to run the show and damper the work place

    From what I heard a lot of the worst offenders were fired when Ted Leonsis took over.

    Advice to Management

    You've overlooked and run out some wonderful employees by being short sighted and playing favorites. Good luck in the future.
