    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Like I said in the title, I worked as a jr. copy editor, and didn't know a whole lot at the time. Learned so much from really bright people.

    Cons

    Copyediting is a bit tedious, no matter how much you like who and where you work.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone definitely hung out together but overall, management was pretty good and responsive.

    I worked at CNET Networks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good perks, office mixers, continuing education seminars. Good office location with nearby gym and parking and plenty of lunch spots.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, salaries not up to par with going rates, best leaders get poached, leaving second- and third-stringers behind to run the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get current with modern trends, tech culture, and salaries. Spend less time in meetings and more time getting in touch with what those in the trenches do.
