    Pros

    Very flexible in terms of what projects you want to work on. it is very common for people to transfer between departments in order to work on the project they are passionate about. Also great food, people, and company culture.

    Cons

    There are way too many product managers and sometimes it is difficult to get the designs done because of all of the product direction going on. Too many cooks in the kitchen.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and open-minded to your employees.

    Pros

    The perks, the people, the atmosphere and work environment. Compensation is good as well. Overall it was an enjoyable experience.

    Cons

    It is a big company so there is some red tape to deal with, and lots of meetings that can be counter productive.

    Advice to Management

    I'd recommend a focus on improving the content to improve advertising revenue. Read the comments of news articles, the articles that are pulled in from 3rd parties. Often times the content gets messed up (e.g. missing videos, pictures, etc) which makes the article almost useless.

    Pros

    Fun, close knit, teams and great projects to work on! Great mentors!

    Cons

    Some teams look for people with lots of experience rather than people who have less experience but can learn fast. That means less opportunities for interns who are looking to learn more.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work!

    Pros

    My manager was really solid. He gave great direction, and was there when you needed help but not a mirco-manager. Quality of people, culture and work-life balance were good. Marisa is a force of nature and it was inspiring watching her (and her team) implement change.

    Cons

    Cross department politics were prevalent and disruptive. I supported dialing back work from home (as it was out of control) but felt they could have left a 1x per week option as many of us traveled from SF and beyond to HQ. New review system promoted an eat or be eaten culture.

    Advice to Management

    Change the performance review system. It's destructive for small teams.
