    I worked at BzzAgent full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    BzzAgent was a startup in 2001. The culture, the vibe, the people are all awesome. The company was acquired in 2011 by Global science Data Company dunnhumby, so the company has started to change a bit. But the work they do is great and it has opened up many more doors for employees formally at BzzAgent.

    Cons

    The once start up company may begin to get a little more corporate- but that also means better benefits and opportunities. Hopefully this will include an increase in salaries as well.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Young hip employees
    Work with cool companies
    Adding marketing value

    Cons

    CEO is a manical micromanager who has never been wrong and does not listen to employees
    Cool concept that was Dumhubby worst investment ($ loser)

    Advice to Management

    New CEO - Get him away from the business. Maybe good in a start up but destructive to company over $10M in revenue.

    Pros

    We hire smart, sophisticated, interesting people. Truly, the people here are amazing: folks are engaged in their work, my boss is a human being who recognized that I am also a human being. Also, this place is SO much fun, big team atmosphere, beautiful work environment, fun blog.

    Cons

    We have some very young people who work here and don't understand how special and different this place is from corporate America...Some of these folks can be entitled, occasionally don't have a "Client Service" attitude andshould think about their internal PR before they open their mouths to complain / make negative comments. I'd like to throw some of them into less humanistic environment...but I am afraid they would not survive as we have spoiled them so! That said, I am talking about less than 10% of the population....

    Advice to Management

    Invest in additional benefits besides the typical 401k match. We could be a bit more creative about that!

    Pros

    Great environment, excellent team play. Extremely rare overtime and flexible hours.

    Cons

    You do not create only for advertising. Sometimes you do game design, game content, product design an so on and there's no structure for such gamma of jobs.
