    I have been working at Blockdot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great work, working in the mobile app development arena is very rewarding and challenging. We get to work with great companies and create content for great brands, we enjoy what we do and it shows. The principals who founded this company really know their business and how to make a job fun and rewarding.

    Cons

    None that I can that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Great management, I have never worked for a company that had better management than the team at Blockdot.

    "Missed Opportunity For Growth"

    Pros

    Blockdot was the leader in Advergaming during the past decade and was seen as a gaming expert for casual gaming. Work environment is extremely relaxed with shorts & flip flops. Good people with a high value for family friendly work hours.

    Cons

    Blockdot leadership is struggling to define a new direction as the focus has shifted away from advergaming. Parent company, Media General, fails to understand how to best support Blockdot in its transition phase. Media General is a newspaper company that is slowly dying and hasn't figured out how to best leverage the digital properties it owns.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on a single focus of purpose and stop trying to be all things to all clients.
