      Lack of transparency

      Pros

      Unlimited PTO, some really great people, the OPs team in particular is incredible.

      Cons

      Beware: people always ask whether we should be worried about lay offs and are told we are fine but all the shady decisions constantly being made to cut costs say otherwise. Most recent example is a bunch of video team folks finding out some of them are ineligible for bonuses (company started giving different contracts than the ones they’ve always given). Then again, the company had to raise salaries three times last year because they were illegally underpaying everyone so maybe this kind of thing should be expected at this point. There’s great work happening here but there’s also a lot of issues in management. Overall there’s a focus on short term solutions over long term investments, in spite of what higher ups say. It’s unclear if those will be addressed but the company can’t grow otherwise.

      Pros

      Tons of opportunities for growth and doing what you want to do Great people, very positive environment Huge audience for your stories

      Cons

      Tough place to be as an intern if you don't hit the cycle right. Sometimes they hire everyone, sometimes they don't hire anyone, and a lot of it has to do with what advertisers are interested in paying for. Also lacks transparency with interns about whether you'll get hired -- you feel like you're strung along for a long time before you have any notion, and then they tell everyone that if they have the funds you'll get hired, and then they end up taking no one. So don't go in with expectations that you'll get hired post internship.

      Pros

      There are some really great people here and if you know what you're doing, there's a lot of room for growth and flexibility.

      Cons

      We do have to deal with growing pains at times. This is not the ideal company for you to work for if you're unable to self-manage yourself.
