    Former Employee - Software Engineer  in  Reston, VA
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Reston, VA

    Pros

    The company has a very convenient location in Reston center (DC metro area), close to metro and bus station and public garages. The company treats you with free coffer, sodas, and potato chips

    Cons

    Very low professional ethic, most of managers are not technically literate. There are lots political games and wasteful meetings. If you are an engineer your promising is impossible unless you have close relationship with high management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to change the business model to more human valuable sector.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Seattle, WA

    Pros

    Good people, and the satisfaction of contributing to an industry leader.

    Cons

    Low pay - they try to hire lots of kids straight out of college. Hard to climb the ladder. Upper management is near universally uninspiring. Don't cover any transportation costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone other than Magid to speak to the employees. He's brilliant, but incredibly boring as a speaker. He does not inspire.

    Former Employee - Account Executive in New York, NY

    Pros

    Growing company. Owns a key niche of the web measurement economy. Long term employment for some.

    Cons

    Yikes - where to start?
    1) People are not ethical - lie to customers, etc.
    2) Cut throat environment encouraged. One story of top level exec "cheating the system" and selling outside territories to fill their own pockets with commission
    3) Unhealthy cliques throughout organization
    4) Nepotism - CEO favors family members, etc.

    I was warned before joining that I would be confronted with unethical people. They were right!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to innovate - you're using decade old tech. Spend more on R&D
