    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.

    Bagel Fridays. Interesting vagrants on Sunset Blvd. Pay is OK.

    Completely creepy and un-transparent parent company (IAC). Caste system for vacay, parking spots. Uninspiring product.

    Look at yourselves in the mirror. Don't purport to have values you shamelessly flout. Better for morale to just be open and transparent about your greed and indifference towards others.
