    Pros

    Genuinely nice people to work with Decent pay

    Cons

    C Level management is out to lunch Years of mismanagement and missed market opportunity have resulted in a dying company Very unstable - sell offs, lay offs, major players quitting, re-orgs. It's not for someone who seeks stability

    Advice to Management

    Sell the assets and walk away

    I worked at Dice full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Casual dress Some truly good people

    Cons

    Awful management promotions (promoting people with no managerial experience and limited experience in IT) Reorganizations that broke up successful teams in favor of empire-building efforts Lack of innovative ideas Cliquey environment Certain divisions became outright abusive toward employees A lot of negativity thrown around to fit individual agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Reorgs don't fix everything. Demote managers that are a bad fit for the role. Be willing to listen to opinions that aren't popular or come from the popular folks. Don't confuse being a jerk with being effective as a manager.

    Pros

    New CEO is great, really seems to have the right ideas for how to move the business forward. Pretty good benefits and overall pay package. Wants to be a really innovative company. Has some great people and good ideas, but struggles to get them out of the door. This is hopefully changing however. The HR department really makes people work hard to be better managers. Everyone complains about it, but the overall outcome...

    Cons

    Constant management re-organizations has left employees battle hardened, and promoted a very competitive environment. A very distributed company, yet the balance of power is very one-sided towards certain offices. The industry is a very competitive landscape overall. We are doubling down on the current business, where it may be wiser to branch out into related areas that are less competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to HR, I was very skeptical for a while but they are really the ones keeping the organization functioning at present. Be wary of managers that are very keen to push their own agenda and promote their own teams. The company has a history of employing managers with large ambitions for their own careers, that put their ambition in front of that of the organization as a whole, and have caused many of the...

    -Flexibility with PTO -Casual work environment -Friendly Co-workers -Fun events

    Cons

    I feel as though I am back in high school working here. Every department has their own clique. If you are not in the higher up 'clique' you will be looked down upon and talked about behind your back. Some management is a joke. A certain department manager should never be considered a manager at all. She made a lot of people feel very uncomfortable, was extremely disorganized, had no communication skills, etc. I could...

    I worked at Dice full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Decent benefits - a few good people remain - technically the lights are still on and they can cover payroll - Colorado is nice

    Cons

    - Most of the talent has left, leaving an endless string of B-players and micromanagers as well as those that are either too lazy to find something better or not paying attention. - The product isn't competitive and customers are aware of that - Dice isn't even part of the conversation for most modern techn recruiters. - DHI (the parent company) attempted to sell itself when the stock was at $5 a share and no one was...

    Advice to Management

    There's really nothing that can be done to course-correct - the market slipped out of Dice's grasp years ago. Service the debt and see if you can do what Monster did and sell the scraps to a big company who's not paying close enough attention to see what they'd be getting into.
