    Pros

    No Pros at all !

    Cons

    Management was just focused on income. Very Greedy... The product brought absolutely no ROI for the clients. New CEO ruined what was left in the company so the company doesn't even count anymore in the online or mobile landscape. All CityGrid Media reviews on Yelp are 1 star reviews... There is not one single review out of the 54 on Yelp for Citygrid from their clients that is more than 1 star. Very poor product, management and people... The greed and "smoke & mirror" clicks ruined and took under the whole company.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school and learn "people skills"

    I have been working at CityGrid Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at CityGrid is half way between working for a startup and a large company since it is owned by IAC. Employees get the best of both worlds as we are able to move quickly and make a material impact on the business and at the same time take advantage of what is traditionally large company benefits.

    Cons

    The local advertising industry as a whole has been suffering over the past few years. So far CityGrid has been able to weather the storm.
